THIS dou­ble-storey ex­ec­u­tive home is not only pri­vate and wel­com­ing, it is jam-packed with plenty of ex­tras to sweeten the deal for keen en­ter­tain­ers.

Own­ers Vivi­enne and Michael, who share the home with their “fur ba­bies” Holly the dog and cats Coco and Louis, built the prop­erty four years ago with Averna Homes.

Vivi­enne said her favourite space in the house was the fam­ily/kitchen/out­door area.

“We en­ter­tain a lot in the sum­mer time, mostly with bar­be­cues, and we spend plenty of time in the pool,” she said.

“In fact, we have fam­ily get-to­geth­ers that go for days be­cause ev­ery­one just stays over with us.”

Through the dou­ble-door en­try, the first of the sur­prises await in the home theatre room, which is be­ing sold with the pro­jec­tor, 100inch screen and in­te­grated sur­round sound sys­tem.

Step­ping fur­ther in­side, the chef-qual­ity kitchen quickly catches the eye with its stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, fea­ture light­ing, plumbed fridge re­cess, stacks of stor­age in­clud­ing an ap­pli­ance cup­board, and the sep­a­rate wet scullery.

This lovely work space looks across both the din­ing and liv­ing ar­eas, which con­nect beau­ti­fully to the out­door en­ter­tain­ing space through slid­ing doors.

The al­fresco area is yet another en­ter­tainer’s dream, com­plete with a fully equipped out­door kitchen, in­clud­ing an oven and built-in bar­be­cue, as well as another in­te­grated sound sys­tem.

This open-air space also ben­e­fits from views of the heated, in-ground salt­wa­ter pool, where there is a lounge area for catch­ing some rays or read­ing a good book.

Round the cor­ner, there is a sec­ond out­side lounge room, a tim­ber decked court­yard that is pri­vate and ideal for re­lax­ing with that glass of wine.

The first floor is ded­i­cated to the fam­ily, with the master suite tak­ing pride of place.

It is po­si­tioned at the front of the home and comes with a walk-in robe, a lux­u­ri­ous en­suite with floor-to-ceil­ing tiling and a rain shower.

The re­main­ing three bed­rooms come with built-in robes and are cen­tral to the main bath­room and a sep­a­rate toi­let.

Com­plet­ing the res­i­dence, which stands on a 480sq m block, are ex­tras such as a work­shop with power, smart wiring, re­verse-cy­cle airconditioning and an alarm sys­tem.

Vivi­enne added the lo­ca­tion was hard to beat.

“It’s just re­ally cen­tral to the city; you’re on the free­way in two or three min­utes,” she said. “And it’s re­ally handy as well; Water­ford Plaza is just down the road.”
