FAMILY HOME WITH FREE POWER

With drive on access, an oversized double garage and 4 - 5 bedrooms, this beautifully renovated home is a must see. The home has been extensively renovated and added to over the years, most recently by architect Barbara Webster and prior to that by architect Gerald Parsonson. There is an abundance of living space, from the large open plane kitchen/ dining / family room to the more formal 2nd living room with gas fire place. Downstairs there is also a large rumpus room - perfect for the kids or as a 5th bedroom (the previous owners used this large room as a work from home office). The bedrooms are spread over 2 floors with 2 generous double and a single upstairs and another double and the rumpus room downstairs. Both floors have full bathrooms and there is spacious laundry on the ground floor with a handy laundry shute from upstairs. Most of the rooms open out to either a deck, garden or sheltered courtyard - so there is plenty of space for a trampoline and to utilise your green fingers! The forward thinking current owners installed a solar photovoltaic system 4 years ago and have since almost halved their electricity bills.

Park your car in the generous double internal access garage, or stroll up the steps and through the front door into the wide and light hallway. Polished wooden floorboards lead you through to the open plan kitchen/dining and casual living room. A coat cupboard tucked away to the right is a helpful storage space.

The skylights in the cathedral ceiling over the staircase provide fantastic natural light.

Located at the front of the home and offering a gorgeous outlook over the surrounding hills, the formal living room flows easily through to the family living room and kitchen. Recessed sliding doors can separate the formal living from both the casual living and French doors separate it from the entrance hall. The lovely bay window is the perfect spot to sit at the end of a long day and enjoy a glass of wine. A gas fireplace adds a lovely ambience.

The family living is open plan with both the kitchen and dining area - creating fantastic flow through to the living spaces. Recessed doors connect to both the living room and the entrance hall. Throw open the French doors to enjoy the seamless connection to the lovely lawn and patio.
