Exceptionally energy-efficient and surprisingly spacious, this 192sqm home treads lightly on the land. Low-maintenance finishes enhance the look and liveability of this retirement retreat. Cunningly crafted to fit a long slender site, the entrance lies to the south. Open-plan living, kitchen and dining faces north. This space basks in all-day sun, contributing light and warmth. A gallery-style hall connects the two areas, doubling as a space for the owners to display art work. Fantastic indoor-outdoor flow was a must. Bifold doors off the dining space lead to a louvre-covered deck. The stylish kitchen and living domain links to the deck and landscaped garden through slider doors. Star of the four bedrooms, the master suite basks in morning sun and lush views. Ready to house guests when needed, the remaining bedrooms currently function as an art studio, study and second lounge. There’s plenty of space for cats in the double garage – and cars too, of course. This area is insulated and carpeted making it a favourite spot of the resident pets.
