** How is the property laid out? **

Enter via the side door off the carport into the fully equipped laundry with washing machine, dryer and plenty of storage. This space doubles as a mudroom with shower, vanity & WC at the far end.

Continue through the impressive kitchen with induction stove, Miele oven, steamer, heat tray, microwave (4 in 1 unit), double drawer dishwasher, fridge, caesarstone benchtops, bar stools.

From the kitchen the property opens up into a spacious casual dining/living room with floor to ceiling glass doors that open onto a massive paved outdoor terrace. The lounge faces a gorgeous sandstone feature wall. Take the steps beside the sandstone feature wall to enter the rumpus room with 2 seater lounge, wall mounted big screen TV. Also on this level is a bathroom, & two bedrooms one with a queen bed and built in, and the other with 2x king singles & built in. There is a glass sliding door out onto a large rear deck where you can overlook the surrounding bushland.

A large foyer with vaulted ceiling that features a white piano is located behind the kitchen wall. Pass through the double doors into the formal dining room and raised formal lounge room which features the double sided fireplace, glass windows that bring light and sunshine indoors and allow guests to enjoy the views. (The hallway in front of the piano leads to the actual front door. The foundations have sunk slightly and the front door is now extremely difficult to open and close hence why we use the side entrance off the carport) At the end of the hallway beside the front door there is another set of white double doors that leads into the spacious home office with a desk. There is a powder room opposite the staircase to the upper level.

Upstairs is a sitting room, home theatre with balcony behind the blackout curtains, and three bedrooms; two with queen beds & built-ins plus access to a balcony. On this level you will also find the master bedroom with king bed, occasional chair by the windows perfect for reading, wall mounted TV, walk in robe, & two way bathroom with underfloor heating, heated towel racks, bath, shower, & vanity.
