Brilliant Boya beginning
A paved driveway sweeps down past screens of native plants to arrive at the single carport of this brick and tile Boya home. As you step inside the front door, a classic 1970s design and gorgeous Hills landscape are revealed. The spine of this home’s split-level floorplan is a central hallway with skyline windows. Three bedrooms and the family bathroom are arranged off this central access point.
Stairs lead into the shared living zone, where a central kitchen is flanked by an open-plan family/meals room and a formal lounge. The open plan extends into a west-facing alcove with timber floors and large windows shaded by the soft green of established plants. Exposed beams, a raked ceiling, and dual aspect glazing fashion a bright and welcoming space with a brick fireplace fitted with a slow combustion fire, a gas bayonet, and reverse cycle air-conditioning.
The timber-floored alcove appears to float above the landscape thanks to full-height windows. Double doors expand this space onto the verandah and sheltered alfresco dining area.
The kitchen has a servery to either side and is fitted with a freestanding oven, U-shaped benchtop and overhead and under bench cabinets. A formal lounge with a sliding glass door onto the verandah occupies the northern end of the home.
Two junior rooms sit at one end of the central hallway; these light-filled, well-proportioned rooms enjoy pool or courtyard garden views. The carpeted junior rooms share the family bathroom and a separate WC. The main bedroom sits at the home’s southern end and boasts a large window framing a vibrant Callistemon and the surrounding landscape. A walk-through wardrobe leads to an ensuite with a shower and vanity.
A sizeable walk-through laundry opens into a spacious studio with easy access to the family bathroom and WC, creating an ideal guest room. This multi-purpose, high-ceilinged space could be utilised as a crafting room, home office, or games/media room. A secure powered workshop and storeroom with paved floor and fitted workbench are arranged behind the studio.
A paved seating area and gazebo surround the below ground pool – perfect for lounging with a drink and gazing at the twinkle of city lights in the distance. An elevated “picnic-spot” adjoining the green open space of Michael Park offers more city glimpses surrounded by the organic forms of granite outcrops and grass trees.
