Classically styled and architecturally designed, this home rests harmoniously on a half-acre section in The Pines. Contrasting colours add a richness and depth to a design that’s elegant yet incredibly homely. The generous 208sqm residence comprises a main house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and open-plan living, plus a cosy and inviting guest cottage with bedroom/bathroom. This secondary dwelling is a charming retreat for guests. Back in the main residence, a gas fire warms in the heart of the living, dining and kitchen domain. The high raking ceiling with exposed rafters creates an incredibly light and spacious environment for everyday relaxation and socialising. Two large covered decks off the main living areas beckon for open-air meals and relaxation. Smaller private decks serve the bedrooms. Oak floors, wide architraves and skirting boards enhance the home’s traditional character. There’s also plenty of space to display art and eclectic furnishings, lending a unique, personal feel to the interior design.
