The entrance welcomes you directly into the heart of the home – the impressive chef’s kitchen with an enormous butler’s pantry and north-facing glass stacker doors overlooking the alfresco BBQ area outside. A stone-topped island bench is the focal point, with breakfast bar, fluted double farmhouse sink and integrated dishwasher. To the left, a black, free-standing Falcon range with five-burner gas cooktop, double oven and grill drawer perfectly complements the darkened tones of the kitchen cabinetry and provides a contrast to the lighter hand cut natural stone tile backsplash. The butler’s pantry behind has ample enclosed storage plus open shelving for ease of access. A sink, bar fridge and “mudroom” area complete the space.

Adjoining the kitchen is a light-filled dining area with more north-facing glass stacker doors to the alfresco area. Tucked in next to the dining area is the first of three living spaces, a cosy, warm relaxation zone with a huge picture window overlooking the front garden and an open fireplace with a striking marble mantelpiece. The second living space is a large, flexible area with wool carpet, built-in storage and bookcases, and a natural stone open fireplace with a rustic recycled wharf-beam mantelpiece. Two huge picture windows overlook the perfectly landscaped pool and deck area, and two other windows overlook the front garden. White panelled ceilings and exposed beams throughout add to the sense of warmth and welcome. The third living space is in a separate wing of the home beyond the bedrooms and has timber panelled walls and ceilings, a hand-poured concrete bench and wall-to-wall glass stacker doors with retractable fly screens that slide open to reveal the alfresco area from another angle.

Three of the four bedrooms are in the main part of the house, with two bedrooms perfectly suited for children’s rooms at the front near the entrance, and the guest bedroom beyond. Each bedroom has motorised block-out blinds, sheer curtains and brand-new carpet. The master suite has a walk-through ensuite leading to the large walk-in robe with white panelled doors with custom timber handles to match the ensuite vanity. The breath-taking ensuite is fully tiled in a sumptuous forest green kit kat tile with natural stone floor tiles for a tactile experience underfoot. A bespoke timber vanity with soft-close drawers, toilet and heated towel rails complement the show stopping shower with a tiled niche along with rain and handheld shower heads. The fourth bedroom is in the separate wing of the home as an almost self-contained unit ideal for guests and with oak timber panelled walls,ceilings and louvre windows, , it’s a luxurious copy of the third living with access to a convenient powder room. The two minor bedrooms are serviced by a main family bathroom, with a deep bathtub, brushed brass tapware throughout, arch-shaped shower frame, European oak timber vanity, natural stone floor tiles and hand cut Zellige wall tiles, with a separate toilet.

The extraordinary wine cellar will send wine lovers into a spin – a dedicated, temperature-controlled room with custom oak shelving, mirrored display cabinets and approximately 500 bottles of curated wine from around the world. Filetti paving on the floor, venetian plaster on the walls and recycled wharf timber beams surrounding the door are an exquisite display of craftsmanship.
