House of the Week: A house for entertaining

THIS stunning home in a sought-after location would make an ideal family home for soon-to-be empty nesters.

Set in the curve of a quiet street just off the McIvor Highway in Strathdale, this contemporary home has three large bedrooms and plenty of space.

But the real selling point is a sunlit timber deck with a rain-sensing Vergola perfect for year-round entertaining.

The rendered façade and landscaped garden makes a nice welcome. The front door opens to a large entry revealing the light and space that are characteristic of this well-designed home.

A new reverse-cycle split system provides ducted heating and cooling.

To your right is one of two big living areas while on the left is the main bedroom with a large walk-in wardrobe and massive ensuite with a spa bath.

The other two bedrooms are at the far end of the house and share a family bathroom.

In the heart of the home is a large kitchen and open-plan living area that opens out onto the deck and offers lots of light.

The kitchen is a good size with plenty of storage.

The adjacent laundry has lots more storage and offers direct access to the double garage. There is also a second free-standing double garage  perfect for all your "toys".

Outside the 1029-square-metre allotment has plenty of space for the kids with room for a pool as well as some subdivision (STCA) potential. But it would almost be a shame to carve up this plot which boasts such a nice size in a great location.
