Built eight years ago, it is evident that the consideration given to the layout has not only created a striking contemporary residence that fits perfectly into its landscape, but ensures that the home performs with utmost functionality now and will continue to do so into the future.
A north-facing sundeck is your entry into the uppermost level and its wide, welcoming entrance hall. The elevation and outlook is quite spectacular, with the north-south orientation of the home and its quantity of architectural glass features enabling loads of natural light and fresh-air ventilation. By incorporating these passive properties into the design and adding a 6.6kW solar inverter system, effective split system air-conditioners, LED lighting, energy expenditure is significantly minimised.
With Flooded Gum hardwood floors and raked ceiling features, stainless steel post, rail and cable balustrades and a continuity of high-quality engineered stone and tiled finishes appearing throughout in a predominantly white and grey theme, the interiors have an instant appeal.
Each of the levels offers a ton of versatility together with incredible levels of integrated storage. There is an office near to the front door for convenience when working from home, with the third car space within the oversized garage offering the flexibility of an additional workspace with river aspect, workshop area or potential bedroom conversion.
Take the stairs, or the large, sensor protected elevator down to the private and tranquil, central living level where you’ll find well designed and impeccably styled lounge seating, dining, media and reading areas, and the chef inspired kitchen. Bifold windows and doors neatly stack away to allow a seamless connection with both the tiled, glass-edged sunroom and open-air balcony beyond. A covered breezeway with built-in seating along one wall offers an additional outdoor, weatherproof entertaining space and is perfect for whipping up a weekend barbecue feast.
With a large freestanding island that has storage underneath on both sides and a complete, solid surface in a mid-grey finish, the light-filled, white gloss 2Pac kitchen will be a joy to cook in. Included is a five-burner gas cooktop, gas wall oven and separate griller, fully integrated dishwasher and a generously proportioned walk-in pantry with appliance shelf, soft-close drawer systems and additional fridge space.
The master suite is the only bedroom on this level, offering luxury and seclusion. Having its own hallway entrance that can be closed off from living spaces, this beautifully blissful room takes in peaceful river panoramas. This parent’s retreat boasts a very large, naturally lit walk-in-robe, porcelain tiled floors, a wall hung vanity with stone top and dual basins, mirrored storage cabinets with built-in power supply, a deep spa bath and spacious shower enclosure with niche, rainshower and spray head.
Additional river-facing bedrooms are located on the lower level, one having a walk-in-robe and serviced by a two-way bathroom with separate toilet, the other, built-in. Both bedrooms and the media lounge on this floor open to a covered deck that wraps around the side of the house, ideal for reading, private study and outdoor games, and offering a substantially sized, extra entertaining area for when friends are over.
All bathrooms, including amenities on the central level are equipped with the same stylish finishes and quality fittings. A drying deck off the enormous, well-equipped laundry is just a few steps away.
Readily accessed via steps, the allotment of just under 1/3 of an acre offers opportunity for further development, whether you choose to add a pool or pavilion within the building envelope or enclose the vast undercroft area of the house.
Mass gravity, gabion cage walls and terraced gardens allow for maximum use and retention of the land. An 11,000 litre rainwater tank fills all toilets within the dwelling and irrigates gardens, while the inverter hot water system heats under solar power and stores for use. Garden elements consist of a polycarbonate greenhouse, chook run, olive trees and orchard with citrus varieties, stone fruit, fig and mulberry trees. A council reserve to the rear separates the large allotment from the river’s edge.
