This large family home is set well back from the road, behind the screen of AN established garden and a no-mow lawn. The double front door opens to a central hall with a north-facing, formal lounge to one side and a pampering principal bedroom suite to the other. White plantation shutters and ceramic, timber-look tiles across the interiors bring a sense of cohesion and modern style. Freshly painted walls, high ceilings and generous proportions instil an air of generosity, creating a home designed for the busy, boisterous reality of family living.
An open kitchen/meals/family room spans the centre of the plan. Double doors open this area to a large multi-purpose room – games/activity/media – while sliding doors at either side lead to sheltered outdoor living zones. The most impressive of these is a newly installed alfresco dining area with an exposed aggregate floor, a high gabled roof with an overhead fan and a gate leading to the gazebo and pool. A courtyard-style outdoor living space opens off the meals area. This sheltered private space is accessible via gates at the front of the home and can be used for car or trailer storage.
Modern pendant lights highlight a sweeping expanse of a Caesarstone benchtop and integrated breakfast bar in a kitchen that will delight home cooks and entertainers. With ample bench space, including a central island, under-bench storage, a walk-in pantry with a sensor light, and a two-door pyrolytic oven, culinary adventures await.
The family room is a generous social space centred around a slow-combustion fire – an idyllic setting for cosy nights at home. Seven-zone ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning ensures year-round comfort.
A separate junior wing comprising three bedrooms – all large, one exceptionally so – sits behind the central living zone. Built-in robes, carpet and newly installed overhead fans fashion delightful bedrooms with room for desks or play areas. The shared family bathroom, a large laundry/utility room with a separate WC and built-in storage complete the layout in this wing of the home.
A sparkling pool with a resort-style gazebo at one end offers hours of water play, a wonderful setting for luxe cocktail hours and a quiet poolside retreat for lazing with a book on the weekend.
Family life is busy – even chaotic – this impressive home makes the day-to-day a little easier with a great location allowing easy access to public and private schools, sports, services and amenities. Multi-zone reticulated gardens give you more time to do the things you love with those you love. A powered, concrete floor workshop and a garage with a high roof offer ample space to tinker and store all your toys.
The current owners have introduced extensive updates – new kitchen cabinets and appliances, fresh paint, new flooring in the living zones, a knockout space for alfresco entertaining and a new automatic door on the garage – and created a modern, move-in-ready home.
