Tasty residence

CREAM, vanilla and cappuccino colours give this contemporary Winthrop home a gelato vibe.

Built around the late 1990s, this Norton Ridge home has undergone a total makeover bringing it up-to-date with style and panache.

The floor tiles of the large entry vestibule are vanilla and the walls a shade of clotted cream.

I was drawn to the open-plan living area by the glow of light spilling in from the many, almost wall-to-ceiling windows.

Tiled steps lead down to a formal sitting area, with huge windows stretching up to the second level and a funky, modern chandelier.

The kitchen/dining and family area is a vast space in soothing creamy tones.

There’s a walk-in-pantry and stunning white-stone benchtops and crisp white drawers in the huge kitchen.

Alfresco entertaining is on a grand scale with a huge timber deck protected by a corrugated iron roof and massive supporting columns.

Sitting on 736sqm, there’s grass for kids to play on and limestone garden beds.

Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, along with a play or study area.

The ceramic sink in the bathroom is a colourful swirl of cookies and cream, sitting atop a cream-coloured stone bench.

The second level is a spacious parental retreat with a huge sitting room with city views.

The spacious main bedroom has a generous walk-in-robe and french doors opening onto a balcony, where you can enjoy the skyline.

Stylish, dark-chocolate double vanities and a cream benchtop in the en suite had my mouth watering for my favourite gelato.

Winthrop Primary School is a seven-minute walk away and there’s no shortage of parkland nearby, including the massive Piney Lakes Reserve.
