If awards can voice opinions, these will speak volumes;
Threaded together with complete quality, this captivating 2 year old home was personally designed to look and feel beautiful from all angles.
This home has marvellous poise, with its visual nuance-sweep appearing to range from American New England/Hamptons, UK Cotswolds through Scandinavian/French provincial; all blended with an upbeat twist of the Parisian designer.
Along with graceful visuals, the home's tactile industrial infusion incorporates many different materials such as 1800's reclaimed timber posts, rusted steel beams, natural timbers and a wonderful herringbone pattern natural brick paved entry foyer that sets the scene for an amazing trip around the bulk of the home.
Individually hand painted, the kitchen cabinetry is capped with 40mm thick stone bench tops, and crafted to precise specifications to angularly fit into its bay window housing. Not purely a pronounced expression, the kitchen is ideally functional, and comes with a 90cm stainless steel cooker, thematic Dublin sink, butler's pantry and views over the property's front paddocks.
The home's split-level lower floor features a large family meals/dining room with stacker door access to the alfresco, the fully segregated 36m2 master bedroom suite, a sunken formal lounge room, the laundry/mud room with shower/toilet and the central living area with a centre piece fireplace for winter family gatherings.
Another wonderful feature of this room is the unique staircase leading to the upper level of the home. Constructed of hardwood slabs, reclaimed posts, rusted beams and industrial chains, it's the perfect nexus to the home's upper level.
As you'd expect from the home's angular roof line, the upper level is a fabulous meeting of architectural geometry, light and heady space.
Featuring 3 oversized bedrooms, a spacious central open-plan rumpus room/study area and the family bathroom there's an enormous amount of space for the kids to live, study and play in fairy tale surroundings. With the pitched ceilings peaking at around 5m this upper level is a very atmospheric and fascinating place.
If you need more living space, the adjacent barn shed has a residential mezzanine level or around 30m2 that would be ideal teenager or home office accommodation.
If you have a vehicle collection, the barn shed's lower level can house up to 6 cars, with workshop space left over for weekend tinkering. Alternatively, as the shed has connected 3 phase power, it could be used a great workshop with the space and capacity to handle bigger machines.
The 2.39 acre block is perfect for horses, alpacas and sheep. With the home sited in a commanding position to the rear corner, there's plenty of uninterrupted space to add stables, a tennis court and swimming pool in the future.
Essentially, this is a truly remarkable executive family property with a visually woven storyline to it that you simply won't be able to find anywhere else.
Not just a property, but an artistic expression; be quick!
