a touch of Italy for re­lax­ation

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - East -

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.
