Sweeping views, generous living areas and enviable outdoor entertaining are key attributes of this gorgeous Barra-Rosa family home, which offers a fabulous and relaxed lifestyle. The elevated location is convenient to excellent schools and a choice of shopping centres.
The home has immediate street appeal and a sunny, northerly aspect. The broad, elevated front terrace showcases sandstone paving and the wide entry has a welcoming feel. In the spacious lounge full length windows allow winter sunlight to pour in, while high raked ceilings with exposed Oregon beams create great atmosphere. This striking design feature continues through to the formal dining, from where outstanding views to the ranges can be enjoyed. Sliding doors open to the rear deck, enclosed with shade cloth, perfect for relaxation in the summer.
The generous, galley style kitchen leads into the large, open plan informal living area which takes in the stunning mountain views from every angle. In the updated kitchen, quality appliances include an Electrolux stainless steel double oven with grill, Fisher and Paykel touch control cooktop and although the outlook would make washing up a pleasure, an Asko dishwasher.
Bright and peaceful, the segregated and roomy master bedroom offers a wall of built-in robes and ensuite. Three other bedrooms, two with built-in robes, are served by the renovated main bathroom, which offers underfloor heating, a bath, shower and a separate w/c.

A staircase leads into the rumpus room, invaluable for any family, complete with a bar and a bathroom. There is access to the double garage, equipped with auto doors and to under-house storage with shelving, while a third garage provides tandem parking for two more vehicles.
