WITH a Tus­can-in­flu­enced de­sign, this grand property of­fers nu­mer­ous zones for liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment.

Newly ren­o­vated and taste­fully re­fur­bished, the house sits on an el­e­vated north­fac­ing 1041sq m block within walk­ing dis­tance of park­lands.

Span­ning two large lev­els, the prac­ti­cal floor­plan en­com­passes five bed­rooms and a suite of for­mal and ca­sual com­mu­nal ar­eas.

Be­yond land­scaped gar­dens and a front porch, an en­trance foyer show­cases sleek floor tiles, a chan­de­lier and an as­cend­ing tim­ber stair­case.

A for­mal lounge area in the left wing of the house has thick car­pets and fresh neu­tral colours, while large win­dows al­low for plenty of nat­u­ral light.

Also shar­ing the open-plan space is a for­mal din­ing area with pen­dant light­ing.

A con­tem­po­rary kitchen with tiled floor­ing sits in the cen­tre of the floor­plan, of­fer­ing con­ve­nient ac­cess to each liv­ing zone. Black mar­ble bench­tops com­ple­ment rich tim­ber cab­i­netry, while a range of qual­ity ap­pli­ances in­cludes a 900mm-wide gas cook­top with elec­tric oven, and a new dish­washer.

Ad­ja­cent is a ca­sual meals area with slid­ing glass doors to an out­door pa­tio. Two additional liv­ing or rum­pus spa­ces are on ei­ther side of this area, and fea­ture large win­dows, nat­u­ral light and views of the rear gar­den area.

Com­plet­ing the lower level and ser­viced by a cen­tral bath­room is a bed­room with a built-in wardrobe.

Fur­ther sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion is on the up­per level, pro­vid­ing peace and space from the liv­ing ar­eas.

The main bed­room oc­cu­pies the rear cor­ner and of­fers el­e­vated views of the yard and sur­round­ing sub­urbs. In­te­rior fea­tures in­clude car­pet floor­ing, dual walk-in wardrobes, and a lav­ish fully-tiled en­suite with dual van­i­ties and an el­e­gant, Ro­manesque-style spa bath­tub.

Three other bed­rooms in­clude car­pets, sub­ur­ban views and built-in wardrobes, and are ser­viced by a large fam­ily bath­room.

Out­side, the large cov­ered pa­tio area is tiled and flows to a grassed lawn that is framed by low-main­te­nance gar­dens.

The property also boasts an ar­ray of mod­ern con­ve­niences, such as air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans, a ducted vac­uum sys­tem, in­ter­com, in­ter­nal laun­dry with out­door ac­cess, and a se­cure dou­ble garage.

Close to As­p­ley Hyper­mar­ket and Westfield Cherm­side, there are also nearby walk­ing and cy­cling tracks, park­lands and play­grounds in abun­dance.
