This magnificent London Court home has been designed along the lines of a Roman Villa setting, to make the most of the Hills climate, by the present owners in 2003.
Centered around a courtyard, the house has been built to last, with brick walls to the outside and steel framed interior walls. Cement floors throughout adds to a building classic that will leave a lasting impression.
All rooms come off a corridor around the courtyard. There are three large bedrooms, master with ensuite and spa and an office/bedroom. The entry (protected by a covered verandah) has a 270 degree outlook to make the most of the sun throughout the year – perfect as a reading room, for general relaxation, or as workspace for your favourite hobby with excellent daylight.
The large lounge is away from the kitchen/dining area. The kitchen/dining area opens to the larger of the two courtyards, and the kitchen has a large walk-in pantry with deep shelving and power so a freezer is out of the way of daily living but easy to access.
The courtyard is an amazing setting with hot water and gas outlets connected for your everyday convenience. A smaller courtyard adjoins, offering a private refuge off the master bedroom for early morning coffee or evening snacks.
The house comes with solar to offset electricity costs. The hot water service to the house is a continuous gas system (no tank to run out!) and heating uses electricity.
The main bathroom (which services the other bedrooms and guests who drop in for a coffee) is located opposite the living area and within easy reach of all the other bedrooms and courtyard.
There is an enormous 2 car garage, with auto doors, for side by side parking. A security door into the house provides additional security for those times when the roller door is open. For those using the garage there is a large sink with hot and cold running water – perfect for those clean-up jobs after working and gardening!
Insulation throughout the house is top grade. Batts to the ceiling throughout and the garage has pumped in insulation as an added feature to further cut heating and cooling. An additional benefit is that the cement slab acts as a thermal stabiliser – warming gradually through summer and releasing the heat through winter, made more even efficient by having a windowless west-facing wall.
The house on a corner block 2200 m 2 allows for plenty of outside activities.There is gated access and a graveled drive to the rear yard, with Stratco fencing along the roadside to keep pets and children safe.
The grounds house 2 × 10,000 litre rain water tanks to the rear and are plumbed to the house, and 2 × 800 litre rain water tanks to the front, with pipes connecting to allow for the addition of a pump if you wished to supply powered water to the front gardens.
This property has to be seen to be believed. It is one of its kind and I welcome all calls to arrange a private viewing.
