A spacious, tiled meals area opens to a carpeted lounge room with a large corner window and a Coonara wood heater; two split-systems tame the climate year-round.
The large kitchen has stone benches (including an island able to seat up to four), a big walk-in pantry, white cabinetry and splashback tiles, charcoal pendants and stainless-steel dishwasher and 900mm cooker.
