Brighten up with this beauty

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME - Jar­rad Bevan

TO fi nd a house that goes above and be­yond, way out­side the norm, look no fur­ther than a builder’s home. John and Natalie Brooks, own­ers of Ti­ifreno Builders, have let their dreams run wild while de­sign­ing an ex­pan­sive home in Ho­bart’s north­ern sub­urbs.

When they bought the prop­erty fi ve years ago it had just a mod­est 1930s homestead on a huge 2683sq m block – an image quite hard to imag­ine while vis­it­ing the sprawl­ing house that the Brooks have since built.

Homes are of­ten la­belled an “entertainer’s de­light” but this prop­erty de­liv­ers more than usual with the sort of out­door en­ter­tain­ing area, built around a large heated pool, that you would imag­ine fi nd­ing at a high- end re­sort.

There is also a fully sound­proof home cin­ema, a jacuzzi, mul­ti­ple bar ar­eas, large liv­ing rooms plus a gi­gan­tic kitchen with an amaz­ing roof fea­ture that tricks the eye and makes the big space feel even larger still.

The fam­ily room is refi ned and con­tem­po­rary with the tele­vi­sion and gas heater built into walls. There is oo­dles of space for a large fam­ily to spread out.

No ex­pense has been spared with the plush his- and- hers walk- in wardrobes – hers with a chan­de­lier and built- in racks for high heels – plus one of the big­gest, most stylishly fi tted out en­suites you are ever likely to come across.

The cou­ple has four chil­dren and Natalie said the home was de­signed to meet the needs of their grow­ing fam­ily.

“When we were ini­tially talk­ing about what we wanted from the home, there were a few things that were a must.

“I al­ways wanted a mas­sive lounge room, a big open space for the kids,” she said.

“That was im­por­tant be­cause our pre­vi­ous home in Glenorchy was tiny.

“I love my bar, it is per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing. John would prob­a­bly say his shed is his favourite part of the house.”

This grand, six- bed­room, pres­ti­gious 442sq m house is en­hanced by hi- tech fi ttings and se­cu­rity sur­veil­lance.

The cov­ered al­fresco liv­ing spa­ces mean in­door or out­door liv­ing can be achieved at any time of the year, in any weather. Plus the house has ducted heat­ing through­out keep­ing it at a con­stant, com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture.

This house is on the mar­ket and its sale is be­ing han­dled by Alanna Hawkes, of Petrusma Prop­erty.
