This giant aquarium is one of the features of this Castle Hill property

A trip to the Great Barrier Reef may be off limits due to current travel restrictions, but the buyer of this Castle Hill property can still enjoy a little bit of the tropics.

The luxury home at 39 Castlewood Drive, listed for sale with a price guide of $1.950m – $2.050m through Guardian Realty, comes with a super-sized fish tank separating its dining and family rooms.

Other features include ducted airconditioning, alarm, CCTV and video intercom. The property is a five-minute drive to Castle Towers and the Sydney Northwest Metro line.

“Most people are taken by the aquarium – the whole property has been really well received and the feedback has been very positive,” Mr Godfrey said.

“It is just a matter of finding the right buyer.”

The property, located opposite Castlewood Oval, was scheduled to go under the hammer in late March but has since changed to a private treaty campaign after the Federal Government’s ban on public and in-room auctions.
