New Home up to $450,000 award winner 2021
This undoubtedly looks like a lot of house for its 167sqm footprint, and an attractive one at that. But, until you get up close and personal, you only get a hint of the intricate detail and craftsmanship that’s been applied here.
Walk up the paved entrance and you’ll be struck by the landscaping and eye-catching stone column that signposts the entrance. A combination of Rockcote plaster and horizontal Abodo weatherboard, plus tiles on the roof, make the exterior appealing. But it’s the extras that take it to another level of class – decks, alfresco areas, gabion features and planting that encircle the property, as if it has always been there.
A deck flows from the confluence of the living and dining zones and the kitchen oversees it all. Benchtops in a U-shape ensure ease of access to everything the cooks require, and the subway-tile splashback is a perfect addition to the slick cabinetry. Elsewhere, neutral tones are the abiding theme – but they are punctuated with punches of colour.
Three bedrooms, two-car internal-access garaging and two toilets make it ideal for family life.
