DESIGNED in conjunction with an architect and builder PM Construction, the owners clearly created this showpiece home, which was completed in 2008, with their busy lifestyle in mind.
“Attention to detail was paramount, ensuring that the home would be timeless, functional and easy-care,” the owners said.
“There is great separation for undisturbed work in the secluded home office and an adult retreat on the upper level.”
Adding to that is the home’s top position on a quiet tree-lined street with friendly neighbours.
“We have easy freeway access and we’re close to Aquinas, Wesley and Penrhos,” the owners said.
“The children love Como Beach, which is very easily and safely accessible via the freeway overpass at the bottom of Cale Street.”
With more than 400sqm of living space across three levels, the home has a modern and versatile floor plan anchored by open, free-flowing spaces built to a demanding specification.
Buyers can expect luxury fittings and finishes such as high ceilings, fullheight tiling and stone benchtops in the bathrooms, European kitchen appliances and solid timber and travertine flooring throughout.
On the ground floor is a jaw-dropping guest suite with built-in robes and ensuite, as well as the home office.
Upstairs, the vast first floor is for living and entertaining, with a sunken open-plan kitchen, family and dining area that extends into the cedar-lined alfresco area through bi-fold doors.
“We have celebrated many family functions making use of the large openplan living and dining area and the outdoor alfresco area,” the owners said.
“It is so easy for entertaining and cooking all year round with the built-in Beefeater barbecue and wok burner.”
Towards the front of this floor are two more bedrooms with built-in robes centred on an activity room that flows out to a terrace.
Completing this floor is the well-positioned laundry, which has direct access to a drying courtyard.
This leaves parents to fully enjoy the top level, where the master bedroom with walk-in robe and spa ensuite takes pride of place.
It connects to a huge lounge with kitchenette and a generous balcony entertaining space with views of the city and river, perfect for those romantic nights in.
Extras include intercom and perimeter security, ducted and split-system revere-cycle airconditioning, ducted vacuuming, smart-wiring, a generous outdoor storage shed and secure parking for four vehicles including a boat or caravan.
