On a corner block of about 3555 square metres, this residence references Tudor styling in its facade but inside it’s a blend of decor features in spacious rooms.
Entry, beyond a horseshoe driveway around landscaped gardens, is to a foyer where the ornate cornices, as in every room, are first on show.

To the right is a carpeted lounge-dining room, the latter defined by columns on entry.
Wainscoting, ceiling roses and multi-paned windows with drapes under fabric pelmets deliver a quiet elegance, as do the olive-green accent wall and freshly painted walls (all through) in warm-white. A wood heater set in exposed bricks is a cosy focal point.
This space connects with a rumpus room with exposed brick wall, wainscoting and a multi-paned sliding door to a huge dual-level pergola with wrought-iron fencing.
It also is accessible from the meals area neighbouring the kitchen.
Dark-stained timber cupboards, a pantry cupboard and good bench space fit out the kitchen, while appliances include an NEC dishwasher, a 900mm electric cooktop and a wall oven.
The next-door step-down laundry (with a third toilet) opens to the pergola, making it a great mudroom as well.
The four fitted bedrooms, grouped at one end, include the main with another multi-paned sliding door to the backyard, as well as an en suite decked out in charcoal and white.
The large main bathroom is nearby.
Ducted heating, air-conditioning, multiple ceiling fans and external blinds contribute to climate control.

A garden shed, numerous water tanks, grey water system and new roofing are included. The property also has a double garage with internal access into the laundry.
