Built in 1981, the 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, sits on an east-west axis. High, exposed-beam ceilings and full-height windows magnify the extraordinary location. The home features exposed brick, shining parquetry floors and a nightly light-show when, thanks to the setting sun, the entire property seems to glow.

A wall of windows brings the views into the large, comfortable loungeroom. A fan-forced, slow combustion fireplace with a full-height, brick surround anchors the room, but it is to the north that your attention will be drawn again and again. Orientate your furniture to take advantage of sweeping views of the national park and beyond and you will never again need to watch a screen.

A bar with built in cabinets sits at one end of the loungeroom. Perfectly placed for seamless entertaining, this area would also make a fantastic study nook – just try not to be too distracted by your surroundings.

The large, well-equipped galley kitchen, with views to the pool and lawn, is arranged behind the loungeroom. Finished with wooden cabinets, white, tiled splash backs, a 900 mm oven, dishwasher and a five-burner hob, this space flows effortlessly to a formal dining area.

A private balcony off the master suite lets you start each day absorbing your extraordinary surroundings. A large, modern ensuite – with a double shower, double vanity and W.C. – is accessed via a walk-through wardrobe. Reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a ceiling fan ensure you sleep comfortably throughout the seasons. The master suite opens to the pool and spa, giving you the experience of a luxury retreat at home. A spacious, private study adjoining the master suite could be utilised as a nursery.
The separate junior wing is centred around a loungeroom with access to the garden and a wooden staircase leading to mezzanine. The large, carpeted mezzanine has a high-pitched ceiling and ceiling fan and would make a terrific play room, home office or craft room.

The three junior bedrooms all feature exposed-beam, timber ceilings, built-in robes and soft carpets. Timber window frames and white walls give these rooms a calming and comfortable atmosphere. The family bathroom is spacious and bright, a Roman bath, shower, vanity and bushland views are sure to put a pep in your step each morning.

At the south side of the home, a deck with a pitched roof overlooks the spa and private, enclosed garden. Lawn, shade-loving plants and a below-ground pool create a secluded oasis. Paving around the pool wraps granite outcrops, blending the home into its extraordinary site. Imagine floating in this pool; eyes open to the sky, and the sensation of swimming in the clouds.

A double carport and large powered workshop with shower and W.C. – handy to the pool –enclose one end of the garden and pool area. Scheme water is connected, and the home is fitted with a solar hot water system with an electric booster. The gardens are watered with automatic reticulation.

Views, serenity, seclusion and a stunning sense of belonging to the landscape. A well-considered floor plan that responds to the site to deliver easy movement through the home and the best views at every point. This property represents a rare opportunity to step up to life at a higher level, and remember, keep an eye out for Wedge Tail Eagles
riding the thermals. An extraordinary property, once seen, never forgotten.
