Situated only 3 kilometres from the city centre, it’s so easy to get everywhere, you won’t need to sit in traffic again. From the moment you enter this outstanding contemporary home, you can feel the cooling ambience evoked by the high quality pristine floor tiles and the Hawaii Ivory Blockout curtains.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream with granite benchtops, stainless steel Ariston oven, 6-burner gas stove top, Ariston dishwasher and distinctive range hood. The arrangement of the culinary layout allows the master chef to create delicious dishes while entertaining guests. The fourth bedroom-come-study lies on this level as does a full bathroom with proud sink/vanity and flexi-spray showerhead. The downstairs also includes an enormous double-sized laundry with ample storage and an expansive remote control lock-up garage with in-built storage cupboards.
