On entering the residence, you are greeted by a gracious reception hallway which flows into a most impressive, bay-windowed formal sitting room with feature marble fireplace, offering stunning garden views.
The very grand, bay-windowed formal dining room, also with feature marble fireplace, opens by French doors to the sweeping verandah, and can easily accommodate a substantial dining table.
The more informal casual areas of the home are several and lightfilled, which are presented on voguish checkerboard, black and white flooring, and more than cater for the growing family, including a very well equipped kitchen with quality stone benchtops, European appliances and generous cabinetry, which adjoins the casual meals area.
A feature of the casual meals area is the spiral staircase which leads down to the exceptionally large wine cellar, which will satisfy the oenophile.
The adjacent, light-filled and voluminous family room, with fireplace, is large enough to cope with the whole family, and opens to the garden grounds through double French doors.
Accommodation is naturally very comfortable, with four well-proportioned bedrooms, study and three bathrooms in total.
The master bedroom is very gracious and showcases the most beautiful garden aspects, including a feature fountain.
The more recent ensuite bathroom (by Enoki Design), with dual rainfall shower and underfloor heating, is most tastefully presented.

The remaining three bedrooms are all generous in size, and also offer delightful outlooks, with bedroom 4 being located upstairs. A study is also located just off the casual meals area.
The bedrooms are serviced by a centrally located bathroom and separate toilet, whilst a third bathroom is conveniently located off the lobby and casual meals area and is of great value when entertaining family and friends.
