A chevron-patterned driveway and established garden out front make it clear from the outset that this place shines with class. And that doesn’t change once inside.

The house has an elegant liveability about it, with a palette of charcoal, greys and warm-white and lovely generous spaces designed for ease and entertainment.

Three architectural elements particularly stand out, the first is the large soft-grey carpeted lounge room (preceded by an open study) that sits under a plaster pitched ceiling, with triangular apex windows each side. Fixed above a large, street-facing window, an automatic screen receives pictures from a projector, turning the space into an intimate theatre room.

The second is the angled glass ceiling above the dining zone that beams in natural light, controlled via a retractable blind.

And the third is in the family hub where a triptych of windows beautifully frame the standout gardens on show – think beds of gardenias, cottage blooms, ornamental shrubs, borders of ornamental grass, mass-planted for minimal weeding.

Near-new, the spacious kitchen sports charcoal granite lavished on benches, servery ledge and splashbacks, which juxtapose with white vinyl-wrap soft-close cabinetry. An integrated Bellini microwave and an Electrolux 900mm cooker and dishwasher are also on-board.

All four sizeable fitted bedrooms, main bathroom, separate toilet and all-white laundry (with soft close cabinetry) share a “wing”. The bathroom is fully tiled in soft-grey, and the tub – with hand-held fitting – perches under glass bricks.

The large main bedroom, with walk-in fitted robe, and an en suite similarly styled to the larger, has a door to a big surprise for first-time visitors: an indoor solar-heated salt pool rimmed with indoor-outdoor carpet. The pitched ceiling has exposed timber joists and there are banks of windows, plus a door to the side brick-paved verandah and giant pergola.

Brick steps head up to a lawn terrace, edged with plantings kept lush via an automated sprinkler system. A netted vegie patch wraps around a garden shed.

This top-notch Westleigh Gardens estate property has more – LED downlights, a split-system, ducted heating, walk-in storage room, a 5kW solar system, water tank, and drive-through double garage. The stunning block is nearly 1190 square metres.
