Sense of elegance
THIS stunning home is a true country retreat just like the ones in the pages of lifestyle magazines. With English and Asian influences, the home has a sense of elegance without being over- the-top.
Agent Megan Tamlin says the home is one of the best offerings she has seen.
‘‘It’s beautiful, but its a home. It doesn’t feel too posh and you don’t feel frightened to just relax,’’ she says.
‘‘I’ve sold some beautiful homes but this is right up there on my list.
‘‘You can see way down south and right around and then way past Glenelg.
‘‘It’s just incredible. The property boasts wonderful views, so family and friends can enjoy the twinkling night lights and the serenity of the rolling hills."
The executive, two-storey home has been renovated throughout and offers 14 rooms, with a separate studio outside and ample car parking space.
High ceilings and polished floorboards give the home character while the beautiful, manicured gardens provide an exquisite backdrop.
Ms Tamlin says the home is ideal for a growing family. It features up to six bedrooms and a thoughtful floorplan.
Downstairs, a games room, gym and three bedrooms are offered while the hub of the home can be found on the upper level.
At the front on the upper level is the standout feature of the property – the formal lounge with generous proportions of 6.08m x 13.66m. At the rear are the modern kitchen with quality appliances, the family and meals room and two further bedrooms. An extensive veranda, with views of the surrounding hills and the stunning swimming pool, wraps around the rear of the home.
Access to this perfect entertaining area is from the kitchen, family and meals areas.
‘‘On the enormous decking, the views are just amazing,’’ Ms Tamlin says.
‘‘You can sit there and take in the views and have a barbecue.’’
The property has garaging for six cars, and an outdoor log cabin would be ideal as a home office, studio, granny flat or gallery.
‘‘One of the best things about the home is the relaxed atmosphere,’’ Ms Tamlin says.
Despite being only minutes away from the city, the home provides a private getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
