Entering the home you are greeted by leadlight work and, in turn, the entrance foyer with its featured tiled floor. A glance upwards begins to show the character of the home such as the 9’ ceilings, ornate cornices and the first of 3 ceiling roses. Double doors open to a light filled formal sitting room that has windows offering views in 3 directions. If formal dining is required then be wowed by the size of the dining room that is opposite the kitchen. As with the formal sitting room, double doors provide the opening, there is a ceiling rose here and the window is a large, 5 sectioned, bay window. For casual living, the family and meals area provides everyday living with its space, slow combustion heater, ceiling fan and wide servery for the kitchen. The timber kitchen is full of cupboards and bench space; it is equipped with a dishwasher along with an updated cooktop and a stainless steel oven. The walk-in pantry, with fitted shelving, is a room in itself and offers much space to be utilised for the largest of fridges and freezers, plus more. The servery enables the kitchen to be either sectioned off or for the cook to still be involved with the family activities.

Accommodation begins with the master suite where, once again, size and space is of the essence. The ensuite is large and has striking contrasting tones and a delightful hexagonal window. Naturally, there is a walk-in robe with loads of hanging space. At the southern end of the home you will discover the second and third bedrooms that both have built- in robes. Now, when it comes to built-in storage space, if the double door, deep linen closest isn't enough, step into the enormous laundry and try filling all the built-ins that are here.
