Strik­ing, lux­u­ri­ous home of­fers com­fort and style

The Gazette Real Estate - - Front Page -

This much ad­mired res­i­dence, with its strik­ing an­gu­lar sil­hou­ette tucked into the na­tive land­scape, is a true show­piece in con­tem­po­rary con­struc­tion. Ar­chi­tect de­signed, this builder’s own home is a tes­ta­ment of su­pe­rior crafts­man­ship, at­ten­tion to de­tail, com­fort and style. En­ergy ef­fi­ciency is also a fo­cus, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on de­sign and prac­ti­cal­ity. Oc­cu­py­ing a prom­i­nent po­si­tion on the south side of War­ragul, the prop­erty is per­fectly poised to cap­ture the splen­did northerly panorama across the town­ship to the ranges be­yond. The façade has an in­dus­trial feel with a com­pos­ite of steel and stone, coun­tered with the or­ganic el­e­ments of tim­ber. These el­e­ments are car­ried through to the in­te­rior where su­perb pol­ished con­crete floor­ing, im­pres­sive stone fea­ture walls and warm tim­bers blend har­mo­niously. Multi di­men­sional ceil­ings, square set cor­nices, clerestory win­dows and a large ex­panse of glass across the north face create a won­der­ful feel­ing of space. Con­structed over two lev­els to com­ple­ment the slope of the al­lot­ment, the floor­plan com­prises five bed­rooms, three bath­rooms, pow­der room, mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing com­mu­nal and pri­vate spa­ces, well equipped kitchen and a large util­i­ties room. There is also a huge four car garage URL with in­ter­nal ac­cess and built-in stor­age. North fac­ing out­door en­ter­tain­ing decks on both lev­els fur­ther en­hance the liv­ing ar­eas and create a con­nec­tion to the sur­round­ings. A tim­ber walk­way guides the vis­i­tor into the in­te­rior of the home. The im­pres­sive stone walled en­try leads di­rectly into the cen­tral liv­ing area, ori­en­tated to the north to take ad­van­tage of the nat­u­ral light, win­ter sun and su­perb views. Cen­tre stage is the stone fire­place fea­tur­ing a dual sided gas log fire and serv­ing as a par­ti­tion be­tween the liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas. Three sets of Bi­fold doors create a seam­less tran­si­tion be­tween the in­te­rior and out­door en­ter­tain­ing decks. Piv­otal to the lay­out is the kitchen, a beau­ti­fully styled work space with Cae­sar­stone counter tops, stain­less steel splash­back and crafted cab­i­netry in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple draw­ers and a step-in pantry. High end ap­pli­ances com­prise a Smeg in­duc­tion cook­top, 900mm oven and a Bosch dish­washer. Nearby is a sec­ond sit­ting room, a snug and pri­vate space away from the main liv­ing ar­eas. Po­si­tioned in the east­ern wing is the main bed­room suite fea­tur­ing a gen­er­ous walk-in robe/dress­ing room and an en­suite. The west­ern wing in­cludes three of the sec­ondary bed­rooms, pow­der room and the fam­ily bath­room. A strik­ing tim­ber stair­case winds its way from the cen­tral liv­ing area down to the ground floor. Bed­room five/study, a rum­pus or the­atre room, wine cel­lar, util­i­ties room, third bath­room, in­ter­nal ac­cess to the garage and a par­tially cov­ered, decked al­fresco are in­cluded here. All of the sec­ondary bed­rooms and util­i­ties room have built-in stor­age. The bath­rooms are thought­fully planned and el­e­gantly styled with su­pe­rior fix­tures and fit­tings. Hy­dronic floor heat­ing on the first floor, split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ing in the cen­tral liv­ing area, dou­ble glazed win­dows, a heat trans­fer sys­tem be­tween the ground and first level, LED light­ing and cus­tom fit­ted win­dow cov­er­ings are fur­ther fea­tures. Pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped gar­dens, with an em­pha­sis on low main­te­nance and indige­nous species, com­plete this ex­cep­tional prop­erty. Num­ber 8 Dun­can Close War­ragul ex­em­pli­fies so­phis­ti­cated mod­ern styling, lux­ury, com­fort and sus­tain­abil­ity. An­thony Rabl from Clark Nex­tRE War­ragul is the man­ag­ing agent and will be pleased to as­sist with all en­quiries or to ar­range a per­sonal view­ing. Tele­phone 5623 6466 or 0458 236 466.
