original 1940s state house. Renovations were completed to a high standard only two years ago. Split over two levels with high ceilings, the design gives parents separation from the family. A large adult sanctuary on the upper level combines master bedroom, dressing room and en suite with a second bedroom/office. Children have a dedicated wing with two more bathrooms at the other end of spacious open living areas and there is a separate guest wc. A sleek contemporary kitchen at the heart of the living looks out into the garden through several sets of bi-folds.
