First and foremost, family is at the heart of this home. Despite its size at more than 5,000 square feet, the house is warm and inviting, offering comfort and accommodation by combining grand function with dazzling form.

With the placement of the master suite and two family bedrooms on the uppermost floor, a spatial separation is created that promotes calm, privacy, and affords exquisite views across the gardens.

The trifecta of kitchen, eating area, and family room is synonymous with togetherness as all ages will tend to spend most of their time here. There is plenty of space in the kitchen itself for helping hands when it comes to meal preparation, with a dedicated pantry and a large laundry room with additional storage, all standards of cooks will be able to practice their culinary skills aided and abetted by leading appliances.

Once prepared, either enjoy at the expansive breakfast bar in the centre island, or move to the adjacent eating area which is light, bright and welcoming with wall-to-wall windows and french doors that open to a wrap-around deck with an overhead heater where breakfast or evening meals can be enjoyed al fresco during the warmer months.

Whether it’s a sumptuous feast that the family is sitting down to or just a simple bite, the neighbouring family room offers a perfect venue in which to relax afterwards, where you can enjoy the warmth of being together.

For more active fun, head downstairs and challenge yourselves to a round of pool or to any number of cerebral games stored in custom cabinetry in the dedicated sitting room. Watch the play-offs in comfort while a built-in fridge and dishwasher integrated into the full bar ensures that refreshments and snacks are on hand to feed the competitive spirit. French doors provide immediate access to the patio and gardens outside where a gas hook up lets you fire up the barbecue and a gas fire pit creates a circle of affection to share jokes and stories and keep the joyful atmosphere going.

If the weather isn’t cooperating, select a favourite movie and spend an afternoon settling back in the reclining soft-cushioned chairs in the media room for your own private viewing pleasure.

The downstairs bedrooms could be used by older children, with one of the rooms allowing access from both inside the house as well as a separate door to the outside. With a spa-inspired ensuite bathroom of its own and boasting sophisticated shower, built-in desk, and a second laundry room, this configuration provides a level of independence that will appeal to young adults.
