The north-facing master bedroom and open-plan living space look to the sun for natural light and warmth. The 276sqm home stays lovely and warm through winter, while plenty of windows allow natural ventilation at the height of summer.

Four bedrooms offer space for the residents, as well as staying guests. Open-plan living forms the nucleus of family life and flows through huge glass sliders to the spacious portico.

A formal lounge is a great addition. The celestial ceiling is a star, shooting to 4m in the internal area where the kitchen, with its walk-in pantry, is the social hub.

The two well-designed bathrooms include an ensuite off the master bedroom. The main sleeping quarters also enjoy a walk-in wardrobe and access to alfresco living, where morning coffee can be enjoyed. Linea weatherboards lend this modern home a traditional feel.

Feature stonework adds interest to the slate-coloured exterior. The large garage is a bonus.
