About this property
Not all upgrades are created equal, and this home has been finished with the greatest attention to detail and high-quality materials and fixtures. With a well thought out modified floor plan which makes better maximum use of the space, the home feels more spacious than its comparables. The most striking difference on entry is the front door being moved out to enclose the previously outside courtyard in a single storey extension. Rather than wasting space with a large lobby area, the kitchen wall has been removed and the space pushed out into the prior courtyard, enclosed by a full glass wall and lit with skylights, it's a fully functional contemporary family space with breakfast table, centre island, additional storage and sleek clean lines and high gloss finish.
The family room off from the kitchen is fully enclosed to give a private, cosy TV or playroom, but could equally be a private dining room, and situated close outside is the barbecue. The main dining room is currently central and greets guests first, with the adjacent more formal living room walled with glass and a glass access door to the hall, and joined by an elegant archway to the dining space.
The garden outside currently has a pool screen to protect children which can though easily be removed. The garden has been recently tiled in sleek finish sandstone tiling, which provides a natural perfect contrast to the turquoise of the well placed, set back swimming pool, and very lush mature foliage of the garden.
The garden benefits from some additional plot to the side which has been finished in high-quality artificial grass and leads back to the parking bays. It would make a great play and running area for kids, with the addition of a hoop net, a goal or a trampoline for example.
Back in the villa, on ascending inside, the landing hosts a bookcase and quiet space but could be pushed out over the extension if desired to create a family room. The bedrooms in the villa are all en-suite, one being downstairs and often requested as a feature. Upstairs the beds occupy the four corners of the house, are finished in tile or wood, but the master bedroom has been extended into the eaves making a much larger room with a fully renovated bathroom with walk in full shower and beautiful contemporary tiling and white fixtures. The quality of the wood flooring is clear, and the large windows enjoy a totally private clear view over the open park area. The privacy of this villa cannot be overstated with absolutely no overlooking property and a clear view on the back side over greenery, compounded by lush, tall planting. A short walk away is the Social Reform and Grill in the Lakes Club.
