A Walkthrough Guide

This three bedroom home is a breath of fresh air (quite literally as it sits atop a hill). As an entertaining priority, the centre of the home is designed around the living and alfresco areas which both overlook the swimming pool and capture stunning views.

The bedroom wing is nested in the left hand side of the residence. The spacious Master Bedroom sits to the rear of the home, enjoying views and direct access through an external door to the covered walkway and alfresco. It boasts a large walk in robe and luxurious ensuite with a freestanding bath. The minor bedrooms both include a double robe and are large enough to cate for a queen sized bed plus a desk.

The right side of the residence, and directly off the main living zone are the entertaining areas. A large pool room incorporates a bar with a preparation sink, wine racks and sitting area. It also cleverly opens to a theatre room which is concealed by cavity sliding doors.
