ALFREDTON: Totally cool remodel

Even with recent development around it, this home still has the feel, tranquility and privacy of a country estate just now with the convenience of suburbia.

A long driveway sweeps into a circular turning point at the solid red brick house adding to the seclusion. Lofty, the foyer encompasses the staircase to the next floor and access to a study on one side.

On the other side are living spaces. Furthest is a snug formal lounge with log gas fire, built in shelving and French doors to one of two outdoor entertaining areas.

Throughout are plush neutral carpets and polished floorboards while timeless plantation shutters dress the windows.

A formal dining room or another lounge leads into the open plan area at the back.

Totally updated, the kitchen is fresh in white and stainless steel. White stone bench tops, island bench, glossy cabinetry, mirrored splash backs, double oven and in-built microwave and coffee maker make this a chef’s paradise.

There is room here for dining and another living area. An outdoor deck can be reached via two sets of French doors.

A combination of established and newly landscaped gardens makes the large backyard low maintenance. There is a cubby house, tool shed plus a double garage with direct access to the house.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a study nook on the landing. Three bedrooms share a newly updated bathroom with groovy free standing bath. A generous master bedroom has a similar en suite with double vanity and large open shower.

Directly opposite the Lucas shops and health services, this is an ideal spot.
