Views Over Bowral for Breakfast
This five-year-old modern beauty was built to catch the sun and make the most of the spectacular views.
From its elevated platform at the top of Shepherd Street, views of Mt Gibraltar to the north provide a mass of greenery to lift the spirits. To the south, the views stretch uninterrupted all the way across to Burrawang.
With a stunning cathedral ceiling featuring exposed beams in the main kitchen/living area, and huge floor-to-ceiling picture windows, it has the perfect mix of funky interiors and good design.
The open-plan kitchen provides an impressive family hub, featuring an eat-in Caesarstone breakfast bench of vast proportions, plenty of soft-close cabinetry, all Miele appliances (including two ovens – one self-cleaning) and a large walk-in pantry.
Situated in this large main room, there is also a dining area and combined open-plan living area with built-in media cabinetry.
In the separate formal living room that can be closed off and made cosy, there is an open fire and more views. The children have a wing all for themselves, with three double bedrooms (all with built-ins) designed around a central lounge area and large, modern bathroom.
At one end of the house, the parents’ retreat features a spacious bedroom with access through French doors to the garden, a huge walk-in-robe and full size ensuite bathroom with Carrera marble (and a second bath). At the other end of the house, quite removed from the family living zones, is a guest-end that features a bedroom with views over the Gib, built-in storage and cupboards and another ensuite.
The laundry is large and features copious storage, and there is a dedicated office for the work-at-home parent or student.
The gardens are accessible at several points from the main living area. The fenced rear garden offers wonderful views and features a covered deck area for entertaining that flows off the kitchen.
Deciduous trees frame the views and raised vegetable beds and a rainwater tank provide plenty of enticements for the gardener. The front garden is beautifully landscaped and completely sheltered and private, providing a delightfully sheltered sun-trap in winter. It is accessible from the children’s wing, the main bedroom and the main living area through sets of French doors.
