STEPPING stones lead across a tranquil pond to an even more tranquil outdoor “room” at this Gunbower Road, Mt Pleasant home.
It’s easy to imagine relaxing here, lulled by the gentle trickle of the nearby wall-sized water feature, as time drifts off. Or dining with friends in this protected year-round space—just don’t overdo the port or you may get a dunking negotiating the stepping stones.
There’s a plunge pool/spa at the opposite end and, according to the vendor, friends’ littlies love to splash in the shallow “river” connecting pool and patio—a delightful but unintended use.
Designed and built by the vendors every one of the many and vast spaces of this home are used, even the formal lounge at the front, guarded by soaring columns.
Step into spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen and you can really see what the vendor meant when she said the home is user-friendly.
Forming an L-shape across the rear of the home the openness flows on, through a massive wall of glass, to the timber deck and water feature giving a sense of even more spaciousness.
With its golden timbered floor and floor-to-ceiling glass you can rest assured this is a light-filled space.
The kitchen is huge, with a walk-in pantry and beautiful, soft-fawn caesarstone tops, including a spacious island bench, and soft timber cupboards and drawers.
While the grown-ups converse over coffee in the generous dining area, or either of the alfresco areas, the kids can watch movies in the nearby theatre room.
Beautiful wrought iron stairs sweep up to second level where you’ll find four of the five bedrooms.
The main is a huge affair, with doors to a balcony that takes in city and river views, and the spa in the massive ensuite offers a similar vista.
The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor and forms a guest wing, with space for a couch, and with its own bathroom.
This is an imposing home on 500sqm, immaculate inside and out and close to shops and cafes, while the river foreshore is a short walk away.
