The word “stunning” is often bandied around in property writing, but this is a term that truly applies in this five-bedroom contemporary home.
Behind the modern concrete, zinc and timber facade are beautifully designed interiors that wouldn’t feel out of place in a high-end hotel or Melbourne cafe.

Most spectacular is the ground-floor living area that looks out to two well-positioned outdoor courtyards for light and entertaining space.
The courtyard at the rear is covered and features a built-in barbecue and well-equipped preparation area, plus space for a dining set. The entire area overlooks the self-cleaning, solar-heated pool and accompanying decked area that has a small pool house with toilet and shower.
The other courtyard facing the living area is a garden area with lawn, an established tree and other plants surrounded by a high timber fence.
The living room interiors have concrete floors, a fireplace and several floor-to-ceiling windows framing views to the outdoors.
The adjacent kitchen and dining area features high ceilings creating an outlook to upper floor, concrete wall panelling and brass detailing.
In the kitchen are Elba marble benchtops and a walk-in butler’s pantry where the stove is located.
Also on the ground level is a study (or sitting room) with blackbutt floorboards, laundry, internal garage access, a bedroom with en suite and steps down to the home’s impressive dine-in underground cellar.
A timber staircase wrapped in tinted glass leads to the upper level.
The main bedroom is positioned for premium northern sunlight and includes a walk-in wardrobe, built-in desk and en suite with double vanity and double shower.
The bedroom at the rear also has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with a bath and shower, while the fourth bedroom has direct access to the adjacent main bathroom. A retreat area, or second living room, completes the floor.
Additional property features include hydronic and slab heating, refrigerated cooling, Miele appliances, ducted vacuum, security alarm, security cameras and keyless entry.
