Replete with luxe at every turn, this lovely newer build fits right in with its mid-century neighbours, although it could very well be considered the best on street. The property has everything discerning buyers look for, including a glistening pool out back.

The house has four bedrooms, three upstairs ranging around a living room/retreat and sumptuous main bathroom with an oval tub and a streamlined vanity with undermount basin. The lavish main bedroom up here has a sleek en suite, while the downstairs main/guest bedroom also has an en suite – and a powder room is across the way.
The colour palette is greys and white, with plantation shutters on most windows, and drifty sheers in the upstairs main bedroom. Everything is bright, spacious and oozes refinement.
Honey-toned hardwood floorboards begin in the entry hall and head past an open study, under-stair storage, powder room and laundry.
A large picture window framing dense leafiness is a striking feature in the dining zone, while a full-width window splashback in the kitchen is another terrific natural light magnet.
In the superior kitchen, a soft-grey Caesarstone island bench has open timber shelves beneath that match seamless upper cabinetry, while white lower cabinetry (all soft-close) includes lots of pot drawers. These accompany a butler’s pantry, a concealed dishwasher and gas cooktop and Pyrolux wall oven.
High ceilings, hydronic heating, evaporative cooling, double-glazing, data points and solar panels underscore the consistent excellence.
Out back, a covered alfresco area with grey pavers underfoot links with a strip of turf preceding the glass-fenced solar-heated salt pool. A slatted timber pergola perches on more lawn beside the pool, and dense plantings screen all fences and create privacy.
Still under builder’s warranty, the house is within a 10-minute walk of the suburban oasis of Newport Lakes Reserve, and the station is a four-minute bike ride away. Three primary schools and a P-12 college are in a one-kilometre radius.
