There's never a template for extraordinary good taste; its always particular.
It's a thrilling experience to stumble on a property that compels you to linger-longer to admire the complete individuality it has to offer to the senses.
Located just 25 minutes from the ACT, this exhilarating property is the culmination of superb initial scoping, relaxed open-thinking and focused dedication.
Set in botanicus-rapturous gardens the wonderful 305m2/4 bedroom family home provides you with no less than 2 kitchen areas, a 9m2 butlers' pantry, one very lovely open-plan living area with direct access to the alfresco and entertaining decks and forever views over the adjoining heritage protected grazing lands.
This home's marvellous kitchens come with a stunning array of Miele and Bosch appliances that will light up your life and escalate your cooking talents to that new creative level. The inclusive list of goodies covers an induction cooktop, steaming oven, warming drawers and even an integrated coffee machine just to name a few.
Generally, the home is designed to catch every available ray of probing light and wafting gentle breeze, and permit you to enter and exit the home from a multitude of well-placed doors. The home's master bedroom suite is on a wing of its very own, and has delightful triple aspect view over the gardens, and a dedicated dressing room with designer ensuite.
If you like brilliant gardens you'll love these.
Designed to be low maintenance with minimum water-draw, the gardens were sketched-out to provide the key elements of privacy, visual symmetry, shelter, seasonal productivity and heady floral aromas. As you'd expect with all this greenery, the gardens are an inviting haven for all types of colourful chattering birds and provide lots of places to fold-out a deck chair under dappled sunlight and flick through your favourite magazine of the day.
Not just beautiful, the gardens house a vast array of fruit production trees that include apples, quince and nectarines.
If you have a smaller car collection or just like weekend workshop tinkering there's undercover over-height access parking for up to 5 cars, with 4 of these being lock-up.
Essentially, this is one of the most charm-filled family-entertaining homes that you'll ever have the pleasure of seeing.
Completely engulfed in country light and fresh air, it's an amazing expression of a leading executive property.
