You may feel like you've stepped into the pages of Frances Mayes' book, Under the Tuscan Sun when you see this stunning double-storey home.
It's facade is almost a replica of the "Bramasole" villa of the book.
Built by award-winning Luke Drummond Builders, it sits on an oversized 1952 square metre allotment, approx. and acre, within a tree-lined perimeter.
The home's rendered brick exterior is enhanced by European curved terracotta roof tiles, shuttered cedar widows and cast iron coach-style exterior lights.
Accessed by double gates, a gravel driveway introduces you to wide sandstone steps leading to double front doors.

Inside the entry foyer, you will find a fully automated home theatre with a built-in entertainment cabinet and a light-filled study/music/sitting room with wall-to-wall shelving.
The main suite at the top of the stairs is more like a parent's sanctuary. The full-width space is pure indulgence with a sitting area, separate study, walk-in-robe/dressing room, double ensuite and a sweet Juliet balcony overlooking the front garden.
The heart of the home is the expansive ground floor open-plan dining, chef-worthy kitchen and large living area opening through French doors to a wisteria-draped alfresco.
There is also a second study with built-in desks, well-positioned for homework supervision or a hobby/sewing room, and the large storage-rich laundry.
A separate wing devoted to younger family members includes a living room, family bathroom, powder room, linen store, four robed bedrooms and external access to the garden and cubby house.
Outside you can entertain your guests in a relaxed, serene setting by the glow from a fabulous stone fireplace while the children splash about in the solar-heated pool.
The backdrop beyond the entertainment/pool area is very impressive with a full-size commercial grade "Modgrass" floodlit tennis court and a studio/gym/teen retreat with ensuite, kitchenette and storeroom.
Notable extras include new carpets and fresh paintwork, ducted vacuum, CCTV security cameras, intercom, ducted cooling, hydronic heating and six reverse cycle air conditioning units spread throughout.
Mediterranean-style gardens surround the home, while the double garage has automatic doors and storage rooms for bikes etc.
Located in a quiet Strathdale street, the property has proximity to shopping, bus stops, schools, nature trails and sporting facilities.
From its rendered brick exterior and Italian-style courtyards, this property will have you feeling like you are on a permanent European holiday.
