Designed by its owners to exacting standards, this Federation-style abode spreads its wings on about 6370 square metres (an old-school acre and a half) and displays an innate elegance.
The way the house wraps around a central courtyard creates wonderful liveability – and the courtyard’s gardens and sheltered relaxation areas are really something: a rocky watercourse meandering through a Japanese-style area, old bluestones, expansive decks, a spa and leafy privacy – it all makes for a very appealing relaxation prospect.

Ornate ceiling treatments, stepped cornices and several wide bay windows reference the Fed look, while glossy granite floor tiles, new floorboards and classically elegant window furnishings go with quality craftsmanship found throughout.
Four living zones include a floorboarded lounge room with a wood heater set in an exposed-brick wall; tiled dining and rumpus rooms; and a casual meals area set within one of those wide bays.
Entertainers and family cooks will love the kitchen, which has the sink set into a bay, finely crafted cabinetry in two shades of solid timber, an island bench topped with granite and all the mod-cons.
Of the four large bedrooms – three fitted – the main has an open en suite, resplendent with burgundy subway tiling, a dual-basin timber vanity and an oval spa.
Among many indoor perks are Ryloch double-glazed windows, high ceilings, alarm system, superior insulation, gas ducted heating and evaporative cooling.
Outside attractions include a Colorbond 9×15-metre powered shed, remote-controlled double garage, high-span double carport, 84,000-litre water tank, three-phase power and Colorbond fencing. The backyard is a vast spread of lawn, with shrubbery around the edges.
Propped between Sayers and Hogans roads, the property is right in the thick of convenience-central, yet the imposing block size promotes a feel of seclusion.
