A family home that celebrates the past while looking to the future with every modern luxury & convenience

You can do wonderful things with concrete and glass, but you can't beat a reproduction villa for timeless allure. This 2007 custom-built home is so good that, not only did it earn a feature in the Sunday Mail, it stands as the definitive style guide for all new builds in the street a quiet little pocket, just a few short steps to the train, Arndale shops and cinemas, the QEH and Whitefriars Catholic School.

Set on a landscaped 669sqm block, it begins with a side-by-side garage and ends with a heated pool that will keep kids and their friends entertained for whole summers at a time. In between, it's warm and inviting, high-spec and energy-efficient in fact, just as you'd choose if you were building for yourself. Those beautiful jarrah floors are battened, not stuck; ceilings maintain a glorious 3 metres throughout, and there's been no skimping on the insulation either, with 13ml gyprock instead of the usual 10. And, with 26 solar panels on the roof, you'll never pay for electricity again!

Two living areas, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms you know how it goes. But, put 3 of the bedrooms in a separate sleeping wing at the rear, give your master suite utter privacy at the front, combine your formal rooms but keep options open with two doorways, and set aside 11m x 7.5m for your day-to-day living and casual entertaining needs No, you can't beat a great floor plan and that's exactly what you're getting here!

As for the kitchen, it had to be Blackwood and it had to be big! Along with some very impressive Kleenmaid appliances and the walk-in pantry you can't live without, the 4-metre island bench with its thick layer of granite is a born entertainer in a space that naturally draws you to its gas-log fire one of the largest and most efficient that money can buy.

But it's as you open those sliding doors, the warm open-plan and heated alfresco become as one and, suddenly, it's party time any day of the year!

You'd go a long way to find a family home as fine as this but luckily that's not necessary, just as far as Kilkenny, 8 kilometres from the CBD and a cruisy 10 minutes by train.
