Refashioned and transformed, there is little to hint at the original purpose of this extravagantly proportioned home.

Double front doors open to an extraordinary light-filled tiled reception. Rooms either side make ideal home offices or bedrooms. A corridor leads to a large bedroom with en suite, perfect for guests.

Copious windows reveal the back courtyard and tree tops above.

A wide central corridor running the breadth of the home connects everything. A left turn and double doors take you to a serious games room. A family bathroom, with spa bath, sits between this and another equally large living room.

Take a right turn for several good sized bedrooms all with walk-in robes. The master is luxuriously large with a well-appointed en suite and walk-in robe.

Blue and burgundy accents add colour throughout while polished Tassie oak floorboards provide warmth and contrast.

Double doors show the way to the open plan living space. A modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, walk-in pantry, country style cabinetry and 13 skylights.

Vestiges of the original building have been re-purposed like the solid timber breakfast bench made from school steps.

A raised wood fire puts out maximum heat to make this area, which includes an informal lounge and dining area, cosy.  The more formal lounge at the front of the home has access to a balcony.

Outside a paved garden has bird life, a raised garden bed, barbecue, sheds, many workrooms, garages and storage galore.

Elevated and in a secluded grove, this is a unique property on every count.
