Marketing the property through The Morning Bulletin Real Estate Guide is Jason Rayner of Mr Real Estate.
He described this property as "top end”, one for people who are looking for that bit extra.
"High profile people and executives will love it all right down to the sprinkler system,” he said.
"It has all the latest and greatest.
"It is a house of grand proportion and magnificent surrounds.”
Built in 2009, the home has been built to specifications from the owners.
It has been regularly updated in this time with new tapware and lighting.
One of Mr Rayner's favourite areas is the massive shed, which he called the "ultimate man-cave”.
He said the space has the extra scope to be woodworkers den or a spray-painters shed, or just somewhere for Dad to put all of his toys.
"The yard is set up for a family environment, having parties,” he said.
"The house and the shed support each other, not too far apart.”
Everything about the house has a feel of "higher quality, modern and an air of opulence”. From the grand entrance to the high ceilings, the layout is one of the best layouts Mr Rayner has encountered in his 18 years of real estate.
It is located in one of the finest areas of Norman Gardens.
"That particular area is one of the highest-value areas,” Mr Rayner said.
Priced at $640,000 Mr Rayner said you could never replace it at that price.
