JUST like a trop­i­cal hide­away, but this five-bed­room home is nes­tled in the Hills just 30 min­utes from the city. Agent Scott Torney says the out­door area fin­ished with a Bali hat over the spa is par­adise in the sub­urbs. ‘‘The out­door area is very pic­turesque, with a pool and spa which over­look a treefilled re­serve,’’ he said.

The un­der-cover out­door en­ter­tain­ing area is com­plete with a bar­be­cue kitchen and is po­si­tioned above the pool area, cre­at­ing de­light­ful views for guests while they en­joy a meal.

Night-time en­ter­tain­ing is a breeze with the re­mote-con­trolled disco lighting.

While en­joy­ing the fresh night air, take a dip un­der the stars in the so­lar and gasheated swim­ming pool.

The re­sort life­style con­tin­ues in­side this well-de­signed and mas­ter-built home.

‘‘This is a so­phis­ti­cated home for an up­mar­ket fam­ily,’’ Mr Torney says.

Split over three lev­els, the mas­ter bed­room, chil­dren’s bed­rooms and liv­ing ar­eas are each de­voted, well-de­fined spa­ces.

The en­try is on the mid-level and spills on to the open for­mal lounge room.

The mas­ter bed­room is on the op­po­site side of the en­try, mak­ing the lounge a per­fect par­ents’ re­treat. The bed­room is com­plete with stun­ning en suite and large walk-in wardrobe.

Fol­low the stairs down to the main liv­ing space to find a fan­tas­tic mod­ern kitchen that will wow any gourmet chef with its gran­ite bench­tops and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing an in­te­grated dish­washer.

It is com­plete with is­land break­fast bar, fixed bar stools, tele­phone sta­tion and the huge walkin pantry. The liv­ing area, fin­ished with hard­wood floors, is set higher than the back­yard and hu pic­ture win­dows max­imise views over the stu ning out­doors.

The home’s up­per level fea­tures three doub bed­rooms, two fit­ted with built-in wardrobes a one with a com­pact walk-in wardrobe.

There is a good-size games room, a great pla for the kids to play while par­ents en­ter­tain.

This room would also suit teenagers, al­lowi them some pri­vacy as they re­lax with frien Mr Torney says: ‘‘This home is re­ally de­sign

uge un- ble and

ace ing ds. ned for a mod­ern-day fam­ily. There is also a spa­cious of­fice which can be com­fort­ably used as a fifth bed­room.’’

Set on a large 1313sq m block, the home is peace­fully tucked away in an exclusive en­clave yet is still close to lo­cal shops and schools.

Ma­jor roads are lo­cated nearby, mak­ing the trip into the city easy.

But it may be hard for new own­ers to tear them­selves away from their own slice of trop­i­cal heaven.
