Described as a private haven by the owner, this Hamptons-style home has touches of European styling throughout.

Behind security gates, the hedge-lined driveway is made from 19,000 pieces of imported cobblestone.

The main entrance is a solid teak door with a Spanish handle that dates back to 1896.

The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, with solid American oak batten flooring, has a lovely view.

Bifold doors open to silver-grey travertine paving, lawn, lush green hedges and espaliered jasmine and olive trees.

The owner said lounging in the pool area while listening to the sound of the fountain and the children playing made her feel like she was enjoying a resort-style holiday.

On a 728sq m block, the two-storey luxury home has 479sq m of internal space, a big change from the original two-bedroom, one-bathroom 1960s home that the owner and her husband purchased 12 years ago.

They knocked that home down and built this home in 2012, wanting to live easily with their four children in the quiet, ‘pocket’ suburb with a large, friendly community and close to shops, schools and Jackadder Lake.

The home covers all options for a family, with casual and formal living areas, an office/study and guest suite downstairs.

The kitchen has a huge island breakfast bar, Caesarstone benchtops, a walk-in pantry and scullery nook, as well as suite of quality appliances.

Four bedrooms and another study (or bedroom) are upstairs.

The master bedroom has a walk-though dressing room with built-in robes and an ensuite with porcelain tile flooring, double vanity unit, free-standing bath and large waterfall shower.

The home is set back from the road and the owner’s children can roam safely, riding their bikes up and down the long driveway, while a cubby house provides another opportunity to play.
