ON A commanding 1375sq m corner block, this magnificent two-storey home offers luxury living on a grand scale.

The 720sq m home was designed by Hofman and Brown Architects and built by Brooks Construction.

The owners bought the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home in 2011 and were impressed by the voluminous spaces, high building specifications and the detailing of the finishes.

There is more than enough room for a family to spread out and live in comfort.

An open-plan formal living and dining area overlooks the central gardens and 18m pool.

Luxury features include underfloor heating, travertine tiling and blackbutt timber flooring, a Carrera marble fireplace and French Cheminees slow-combustion radiant wood-fired heater.

For everyday living, there is a casual family/kitchen area that opens to a terrace.

The large family room has a beautiful Donnybrook stone fireplace and American walnut veneer cabinets.

Preparing family meals and catering for formal parties will be a breeze in the kitchen with Caesarstone and stainless-steel benchtops, two Jennair stainless-steel fridges, two Bosch dishwashers, a Wolf dual fuel pyrolytic double oven and a scullery.

If family members still need more space, there is also a separate playroom/theatre room that opens to the barbecue area.

The home is ideal for someone who likes to entertain.

“The entertaining space is a huge bonus and has accommodated 250 people,” the owners said.

“We have had two of our sons’ 21st parties and a 50th birthday party in the front courtyard.

“We occasionally entertain in the cellar, which has seating for eight and a capacity of approximately 2500 bottles of wine.”

There are three bedrooms on the first floor and two on the ground floor.

All bathrooms and powder rooms have travertine tiling, Caesarstone benchtops, and heated floors.

The master ensuite and downstairs bathroom have spa baths.

There is no doubt this is an impressive home that your family will enjoy for years to come.
