Californian-style bungalow meets modern living in this new home for a blended family that references the glory days of the bungalow with bay windows, gabled roof, weatherboard cladding and stone chimney. With five-plus bedrooms, three bathrooms and three living areas so children can hang out separately from adults, this substantial home has all manner of creature comforts. A high vaulted entry, with stairs leading to the upper floor, adds drama. Feature sliding doors lead into a living room with a raked-ceiling and a gas fire providing ambience. Adjoining this is an open-plan kitchen/dining room with a generous scullery. All these areas are tied together with laminate flooring throughout. Sliders feed out to the louvre-covered patio and pool area, to provide a seamless entertaining space. With a northfacing aspect, this space is designed for all-day enjoyment of its indoor-outdoor amenities. Upstairs is a substantial master suite with well-appointed ensuite including luxurious bath, double bowl vanity and a separate office.
