Named "Totara nui," which means 'Great Totara', this magnificent tri-level residence with distinctive architecture is sheltered by an abundance of mature trees & home to a myriad species of beautiful birdlife. Set on 1.69 hectares (4.1 acres) the 338 square metre quality contructed home was innovatively designed by architect Brendan Rawson, blending a strong modern linear structure with the bushland backdrop to create a highly sophisticated but casual environment in which to relax and revitalize. The initial building consent here included provision for a tennis court and pool which the new owner may install if desired. Soaring ceilings add drama...

in the entry foyer which splits to offer the formal lounge and dining to one side and family living to the other. Awash with spectacular views and infinite 6m high ceiling the elegant formal area celebrates exposed concrete block, steel beams, built-in fireplace as well as small stained glass feature windows which catch the light to inject playful colour throughout the day. Almost devoid of walls on the north side, windows and glass doors lead out to decks and a beautiful, tranquil garden courtyard. Solid Tasmanian Oak flooring shines in the air conditioned open plan family living section where floor to ceiling windows invite verdant views of the park-like landscaped surrounds, flowing out to its own peaceful private courtyard. Taking centre stage the Carlielle kitchen comprises 60mm granite benchtops, F and P appliances, Vola tapware, and an abundance of cabinetry as well as a walk-in pantry. Built in to the island bench is a clever casual dining table. Adjoining this spacious light-filled dining and casual living is a convenient built-in study nook. Also on this level, a large bedroom with built-in wardrobes features its own ensuite and study nook. This spills out to a private scenic wrap around deck. The lavish master suite is appropriately impressive, with large walk-through robe, bi-fold windows, exceptional views and vogue ensuite with granite benchtop, open shower, large freestanding bath and double vanity. A further set of stairs leads to the studio space, spilling out to its own balcony with sweeping views to the west. Upstairs also caters to three scenic bedrooms, all with walk-in robes and northern deck access. Off the hall, the family bathroom has both bath and open shower plus there's a separate powder room. Outdoors, clever use of topography has the garage tucked into the lower level with internal stairs offering home access on the next level. Storage is excellent throughout this residence. There's also plenty of sealed off street parking. Recreation facilities are second to none catering for all ages with grassy play areas for kids and pets, a garden shed, a magical tree house and an amazing outdoor 5m x 6m pavillion with spa and recessed gas burning fireplace enclosed by a stunning feature wall surround.
