Along with being an amazing home, 25 Jiparu Drive is a choreographed set of enjoyable events.
The home's riveting visual journey takes you from the glamour of the Hollywood Hills through to compelling heart of Europe; and even has touch of avant-garde country Australia just to keep things anchored to home.
But, despite the very evident glam, it's also a big family home.
With over 323m2 under roof and sporting 6 bedrooms and 3 separate living areas, there's more than enough space for your large family group.
The 60m2 north-facing living room that folds-in the kitchen, family and meals is a wonderful display of intriguing good taste and day to day pragmatics. On one side of the room there's a built-in European-style fireplace that's been coated in al-la French or Swiss chalet tiles, and on the other there's the kitchen with its runway-length stone bench top and wall battery of custom fit cabinetry, 6m2 walk-in-pantry and stunning array of inclusions such as a double oven, induction cooktop and his/hers Vintec wine fridges. What else can you ask for in our famous cool climate wine area?
To connect the lifestyle flow of this beautiful living area to the home's outside there's a 27m2 Vogue alfresco arching like a shell canopy curving over the deck, effectively providing complete weather protection and warming translucent light entry into the adjoining rooms. It's a superb expression of materials and form.
The home's 2 other living areas include a 20m2 home theatre room with a dazzling ceiling of colour-morphing fine coloured lights, and a 9m2 rumpus or play room that's perfectly located on the secondary bedroom section of the home.
If you love resort-styled master bedroom suites you can unfold the doona here tomorrow. With its Riviera style ensuite and theatre-like dressing room area, this 41m2 master suite is a clear example of the marvellous design initiatives that form the spatial soul of this home.
There's a dedicated guest bedroom with its own ensuite and robe located at the front of the home so your weekend stay-overs can come and go as they please. The remaining 4 bedrooms are around 12m2 each in size and have triple length built-in robes.
All of the home's wet areas are colour and tonal coordinated to provide a harmonious look and feel, and the laundry room has a walk-in linen/storage room where you could stash the kids toys when you don't want them under-foot.
The rear garden's undeniable azure jewel in the crown is its fully landscaped 100m2 raised pool-side entertaining area. Perfectly elevated to capture the countryside views, the 10m electrically heated salt water pool is bordered by sun-warmed Travertine pavers and neat garden beds. To aesthetically knot the home's alfresco to the pool side area the same style Vogue canopy was used as a Cabana cover for the pools entertaining and spa deck.
You can bring your collection of cars, a trailer boat or caravan the 10m x 20m Colorbond shed can take them all. Currently fitted-out with a games room, there's still more than enough space to accommodate 2 cars and the workshop of your dreams. The shed has 2 available 3m x 3m high clearance door for over-height vehicle access.
The property's large 3.27 acre block is currently divided into the house block, plus a livestock paddock making it ideal for a couple of ponies, plus the kids and their furry pets.
Essentially, this is one of Murrumbateman's most remarkable executive properties. The coordinated brilliance of its overall presence is breath-taking, yet it's still a practical family home.
