With solid exterior appeal and a smart floor-plan, this contemporary home has its feet firmly on the ground. Expertly arranged on tricky terrain, the two-storey build makes the most of available space.
Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three separate living spaces deliver affordable luxury on 238sqm.
Floor-to-ceiling glass encourages flow to the deck and allows an outlook over the surrounding rooftops. The merging of close and distant views creates a satisfying sense of space.
Daylight angles played a significant role in the design of the house. Sunshine graces the open-plan space creating a warm and bright environment for entertaining and everyday tasks. The kitchen is well-oriented to the views and thoughtfully connected to the dining area and main lounge.
The overall aesthetic is strong and well-crafted. Exterior cedar screens complement the lines of the wide vertical cladding to the upper volumes. Masonry stack bond veneer provides texture and a grounding effect on the lower levels.
