OPEN BY APPOINTMENT THIS WEEK
This is one of Murdoch’s finest homes. Most houses these days have “open-plan living” which is code for the kitchen, dining and living areas forming one big room.
This stately yet vibrant home in popular Murdoch is unusual in that it has the connectedness of modern open-plan living, but it also has all kinds of intimate and private spaces - even if every family member invites friends around at the same time. These spaces also provide many choices every day. For example, the kitchen is open to a cosy breakfast room which allows chats during cooking, or there is a formal dining room for when you have more guests, or there is a huge outdoor entertainment area that can cater for the extended family or a big celebration, or you could just decide to eat outside in one of a number of locations.
The flexible, intimate and private spaces continue across the rear living wing. The spectacular lounge room, with soaring raked ceilings, in-built wine rack and decorative circular window, opens out onto the perfect area for outdoor dining. The breakfast dining alcove is also glazed with a stunning view of the rear garden, and a sliding glass door allows extension to a relaxed outdoor seating or dining area. The kitchen too looks out on the BBQ area and the window opens to allow talking and the passing of BBQ supplies.
The elaborate alfresco area has a good BBQ, wood-fired pizza oven, fridge, dishwasher and cupboards. The entire area is covered with translucent roofing supported by chunky stone columns. These square columns give the house a Tuscan, Mexican or California Bungalow look, which matches the abundant landscaping and quality stone paving and retaining walls. The beautiful pool and secluded cabana/gazebo surrounded by greenery provide relaxation. Most of the garden areas are thoughtfully screened in various ways for added privacy.
Back inside, the large lounge is not the only living room. There is a sitting area off the breakfast alcove with ornate Limestone fireplace (or the breakfast alcove and sitting area could be combined if you want a large dining room off the kitchen). Off the entrance hall is a room that could have a range of uses such as a buffet area or a formal drawing room as a first port of call for visitors. There is also a room with an inglenook under the window and a long bench, which would make an ideal reading room/study or a butler’s pantry/scullery.
There are four luxurious double bedrooms, each with built-in robes and glorious views of the gardens. The roomy master bedroom has a bay window, walk-in robe and a sleek ensuite with full-height linen cupboard, pedestal basin, brass fittings and quality wall and floor tiles. The modern bathroom has a bath/shower and similar high-quality fittings.
This magnificent home will adapt to and delight any family, so call Rhys Calnan today on…
