From the ren­dered brick fa­cade in a mod­ern colour scheme, the an­gu­lar roof, the ex­posed-ag­gre­gate con­crete drive­way and the neat gardens and lawns at the front, it’s clear this two-storey home is some­thing spe­cial.

In­side, the size, ver­sa­til­ity and qual­ity of fin­ish­ing through­out are just as im­pres­sive.

Four liv­ing ar­eas en­sure fam­ily mem­bers have their own space for work­ing or re­lax­ing, while also en­cour­ag­ing so­cial in­ter­ac­tion and recre­ation. The front door opens to re­veal a wide en­trance hall with highly glazed floor tiles and a cof­fer ceil­ing — a fit­ting in­tro­duc­tion to this el­e­gant home.

To the left is a for­mal lounge and straight ahead is the main liv­ing space, com­pris­ing a huge, sunny fam­ily room, din­ing area and beau­ti­ful kitchen with white cab­i­netry, smart acrylic bench­tops, in­duc­tion cook­ing, dou­ble oven, dish­washer and two pantries.

At the rear is an im­pres­sive tiled area. This en­closed room has its own kitchen, a built-in elec­tric bar­be­cue with a range hood, dish­washer and space for a fridge/freezer. It is big enough for re­lax­ing, so­cial­is­ing and games – there’s enough space for a pool ta­ble, an out­door ta­ble set­ting and plenty of seat­ing, and it’s all shel­tered and pri­vate for year-round en­ter­tain­ing.

A com­ple­men­tary deck in the back­yard is ideal for spilling out­doors and crank­ing up the pizza oven on warm sum­mer nights.

Also on this level is a size­able of­fice or study, which would serve equally well as a fifth dou­ble bed­room, and the lux­u­ri­ous main bed­room. This fea­tures a walk-through robe with hang­ing and shelv­ing space and an en suite bath­room with a dou­ble shower, spa bath, dou­ble van­ity and toi­let.

Even the laun­dry im­presses, with its abun­dant cab­i­netry and linen cup­boards, high-gloss tiling and a thought­ful fea­ture of out­door ac­cess to an un­der­cover wash­ing line.

A guest toi­let with hand basin is next to the laun­dry.

Car­peted stairs lead to a huge cen­tral ac­tiv­ity room

from which ra­di­ate three fam­ily bed­rooms — all good-sized dou­bles with built-in robes — and the sec­ond bath­room, an­other big room with a bath, van­ity, shower and sep­a­rate toi­let.

For the big boys’ toys, there’s a garage for up to five ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing one with a high-clear­ance door, as well as a work­shop with power and nat­u­ral light, and enough stor­age space for bikes, golf clubs, kayaks and as­sorted fam­ily para­pher­na­lia. That’s in ad­di­tion to the good-sized gar­den shed in the back yard.

Stor­age through­out the rest of the home was also well planned, with an abun­dance of built-in cab­i­netry and a first floor walk-in store room.

The main liv­ing ar­eas on both floors are air con­di­tioned, and high-qual­ity floor­ing, cur­tains and blinds, at­trac­tive decor and mod­ern steel balustrad­ing fin­ish the home off bril­liantly.

Very close to a pri­mary school and within easy reach of high schools, sports grounds and a shopping cen­tre, this prop­erty is also only a six-minute drive to Al­bany’s CBD.

This thor­oughly im­pres­sive home, which oc­cu­pies a 700sqm block, was de­signed for prac­ti­cal, com­fort­able liv­ing, which has re­sulted in a lux­u­ri­ous fam­ily home as well as a wel­com­ing place to en­ter­tain friends and host par­ties.

It is a beau­ti­ful home for grow­ing fam­i­lies, for al­low­ing teenagers to en­joy pri­vacy for study and space for games, and for par­ents to reap their well-earned re­wards with an op­u­lent and ful­fill­ing life­style.
