De­sign is per­fect for a cho­sen view

This hill­side lo­ca­tion is hard to beat, writes Tom Dougherty.

AHOME over­look­ing a re­serve at Green­with was de­signed to high­light the stun­ning views, ven­dor El­lana Cruise says.

‘‘Be­cause of where it is sit­u­ated we had to build into the the side of a hill, and from that hill you have all of Cob­blers Creek Re­serve, which is never go­ing to get built on,’’ she says.

‘‘The views are amaz­ing and the whole idea was, be­cause we have a very wide block, to build a very wide-frontage house and take ad­van­tage of those views.’’

The two-storey home has four bed­room, all on the top level.

The mas­ter is at one end and fea­tures a walk-in robe and an en­suite with a shower.

‘‘We vir­tu­ally have a view from ev­ery win­dow, ev­ery bed­room has a view ex­cept for the fourth bed­room, which is at the back,’’ she says.

Two of the other bed­rooms are at the front and they both have built-in robes.

At the far end of the house from the bed­rooms is an open­plan kitchen and fam­ily room, with a din­ing room with bal­cony ad­ja­cent.

The kitchen fea­tures a pantry, a break­fast bar and white cup­boards.

‘‘The place is ex­cel­lent for en­ter­tain­ing, we have had some great par­ties over the years,’’ Ms Cruise says.

‘‘We have a very large en­ter­tain­ing area out­side that comes off the fam­ily room.’’

Also on the top level is a twoway bath­room with a bath and a shower, and a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess.

At the back of the home is a shade-sail-cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing area, and there is also a per­gola area at­tached to the fam­ily room.

The bot­tom level of the home con­sists of a games room, a dou­ble garage with an au­to­matic door, a workshop also with an au­to­matic door, a laun­dry and a cel­lar.

‘‘Another ma­jor sell­ing point is that you can eas­ily run a busi­ness from it, we have all th­ese years and there is a very big stor­age and workshop area,’’ she says.
