IN walking distance to several scenic parks in Ridgewood’s The Vistas estate, this extra-large residence will easily appeal to families who love to get active with the kids or want a picturesque neighbourhood for their evening walks.

“The home will suit buyers wanting top-quality finishes and a layout and design different to the usual,” selling agent Loma Eldridge said.

“The house has an opulent feel with attention to detail, from the kitchen through to the outdoor living areas.”

From the façade, it is immediately evident that a lot of thought has gone into the design of this contemporary home, built by Scott Park Homes in 2008 on the 630sq m block.

“There are stencilled concrete finishes and a wide double portico with a separate driveway, so as not to impose on the grandness of the entry,” Ms Eldridge said.

Inside, feature porcelain tiling in the foyer sets the scene for the luxurious finish employed throughout the 244sq m dwelling, which includes four huge bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private home office or fifth bedroom.

There are three cavernous family areas including an enclosed theatre room and the formal lounge room.

The central hub of the home is no doubt the open-plan main living/dining/kitchen area, which is anchored by polished tiled floors and a chic colour scheme and highlighted by downlights throughout.

For outdoor entertaining, there is a full-length pitched patio to the east that seamlessly connects with the fully paved, north-facing backyard with central water feature.

“The best room in the house is the massive kitchen with huge amounts of extra storage space and separate zones for cooking, serving and preparation,” Ms Eldridge said.

“Also, the huge rear garden has plenty of room to grow with the family’s needs; the addition of a large pool or garage would still allow for plenty of play space for the kids.”
