The sheer space and stairs are not an issue thanks to the internal lift from the double garage at the top of the property, to the main living level.

And what a level it is, with its expansive harbour views and its grand kitchen, a feast of commercial grade stainless steel, Brazilian granite and every conceivable luxury appliance.

The island bench has been selected to resemble a dry creek bed.

The home’s namesake, the monitor lizard, also features throughout, including etched into the glass of the kitchen and into the sandstone of the foundations, viewed through a purpose-built window.

This level also has an outdoor area that hovers over the water. Upstairs is a loft study, as well as guest accommodation, bathroom, and gym.

Downstairs are two bedrooms, with access to a balcony, and a rumpus room.

The main bedroom that takes up an entire level. It has a deep bath with views.

Starting your hunt for a dream home
