Combining all the peace, privacy and elegant grandeur of an acreage estate, this property provides the perfect balance for those desiring that elusive mix of lifestyle and convenience. Situated at the end of a long drive, surrounded by 2966sqm of lush, landscaped gardens with two duck ponds and picnic area, the property is close to schools, shops, public transport and the CBD.
The house was built in 2004 with great attention to detail and offers a floor plan that sees the entire home centered round an internal courtyard and with its water feature and spacious dimensions, it makes a magical setting for evening dining. With this courtyard acting as the central focal point, the house can be easily divided into different zones creating areas for formal living and dining, a more relaxed family area, room for children to play, guests to stay and offices.
While the formal area enjoys the benefit of an open fireplace and courtyard views, the more casual rooms boast direct access to the heated, salt-water pool and adjoining alfresco dining area. The kitchen with its French provincial-style cabinetry creating so much character and warmth, designer appliances and plentiful storage options, ensure it remains absolutely functional.
There are six bedrooms and the self-contained office wing could provide a further three rooms if necessary. Of the six rooms, there is a completely private guest suite with its own entrance, four children’s bedrooms and the master suite with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.
The office wing can be completely closed off from the rest of the home and consists of the three large rooms, a powder room and kitchenette. Technologically speaking, the home boasts zoned and ducted air conditioning, zoned security (including intercom system and electric gates) and data cabling throughout. There is accommodation for three vehicles, large paved area for visitors, plentiful internal storage and two garden sheds.
With its hedges of lavender, imported terracotta tiles, high ceilings and elegant yet rustic charm, this home exudes the effortlessly chic style so synonymous with France. And with its large block, lush gardens and outstanding position it is possible to imagine that is right where you are – situated amidst the rolling hills of the Loire. Yet this property is just minutes to all amenities, making it a far more realistic option for those dreaming of just a little joie de vivre.
