As show homes go, this is a beauty – two-storeys perched on a ridge with three sides connecting with a reserve covered in native bush. Not only an exemplar of good building practice, it also demonstrates what can be achieved on a tricky site and how to beautifully settle a home into a bush-clad section. Built to maximise all-day sun and beautiful surrounds, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has spacious living, plenty of glass and outdoor areas that nestle into the environs. Extensive use of dark timber on the outside helps embed the 268sqm house on the site. Inside, the timber decor dovetails with the views. Skylights crafted into timber ceilings funnel light into living spaces and glazed doors open the house to stairs and the lush, green expanses beyond. The elegant kitchen is part and parcel of the open-plan living area and has a walk-in pantry. Although this home, which also has a double garage, laundry, study and powder room, is built over two levels progressing down the site, it has been future-proofed for potential owners. Inside you’ll also find a lift.
