a touch of Italy for relaxation
FLY away to the Amalfi coast or just sit back and relax in your new home, s t yl ed l i ke t hose overlooking t he Mediterranean.
Agent Christine Dimitrivich says she just ‘‘loves’’ the atmosphere.
‘‘This home just has a really friendly and inviting Mediterranean atmosphere,’’ she says.
‘‘Even though the fashion at the moment is very modern and streamlined, this place has been styled differently and has a lot of soft inviting colours and natural light.’’
The Italian feel is reinforced with its positioning at the end of a quiet no-through road and directly adjacent the local heritage-listed olive grove.
The simple floorplan works well to separate the living from the sleeping areas, adding privacy to the bedrooms.
At the rear of the home is the open-plan living area with floor-to-ceiling glass providing views of the private courtyard.
The quality kitchen is perfect for preparing casual dinner parties.
All three bedrooms are of good size. One has been fitted with a workbench and would be perfect as a home office.
At the front of the home the master bedroom comes into its own with his-and-hers walkin wardrobe and en suite complete with bath.
The garden is professionally designed and landscaped to create three distinct spaces.
There is a covered dining area with builtin barbecue that is connected to the mains gas, perfect for summer entertaining.
There also is a herb garden and a central patio finished with a tiled mural and fountain flanked by two ornamental olive trees.
Ms Dimitrivich says the home will suit those who want to leave the formalities of the office behind.
‘‘I can’t imagine you will host formal dinner parties, but many casual barbecues and drinks on beautiful evenings,’’ she says.
‘‘You will feel like having parties all the time because all the living areas and out the back make the perfect location.’’
Other features of the home include an articulated watering system, quality built-in furniture, ducted evaporative cooling and two gas heaters.
