You may feel like you've stepped into the pages of Frances Mayes' tome, "Under the Tuscan Sun" when you see this stunning double storey home – it's facade is almost a replica of the "Bramasole" villa of the book.
Built by award-winning Luke Drummond Builders, it sits on an oversized lot approx 1,952m² (½ acre) within a tree-lined perimeter. The home's rendered brick exterior is enhanced by European curved terracotta roof tiles, shuttered cedar widows and cast iron coach-style exterior lights.
Accessed by double gates, a gravel driveway introduces you to wide sandstone steps leading to double front doors. Inside the entry foyer, you will find a fully automated home theatre with a built-in entertainment cabinet and a light-filled study/music/sitting room with wall-to-wall shelving.
The main suite at the top of the stairs is more like a parent's sanctuary. The full-width space is pure indulgence with a sitting area, separate study, walk-in-robe/dressing room, double ensuite and a sweet Juliet balcony overlooking the front garden.
The heart of the home is the expansive ground floor open-plan dining, chef-worthy kitchen and large living area opening through French doors to a wisteria-draped alfresco while a second study with built-in desks is well-positioned for homework supervision or a hobby/sewing room along with the large storage-rich laundry.
A separate wing devoted to younger family members includes a living room, family bathroom, powder room, linen store, four robed bedrooms and external access to the garden and cubby house.
Outside, entertain your guests in a relaxed, serene setting by the glow from a fabulous stone fireplace while the children splash about in the solar-heated pool. The backdrop beyond the entertainment/pool area is a full-size, floodlit tennis court and a studio/gym/teen retreat with ensuite, kitchenette and storeroom.
Notable extras include new carpets and fresh paintwork, ducted vacuum, CCTV security cameras, intercom, ducted cooling, hydronic heating and six reverse cycle a/c units spread throughout.
Mediterranean-style gardens surround the home and double garage with auto door and storage rooms for bikes etc.
Located in a quiet Strathdale street, the property has proximity to shopping, bus stops, schools, nature trails and sporting facilities.
From its rendered brick exterior and Italian-style courtyards, this property will have you feeling like you are on a permanent European holiday.
