This beautiful and functional home is unique in its architectural design and overall attention to detail. The property is very secure, well positioned in a cul de sac within the estate and is private - you cannot see your neighbors, which is unique in modern estates.
Walking into the property you get a sense of quality, privacy and tranquility, feeling that you are outside of the city in a serene environment. The face-brick building combines classic elements of the warmth of wood with accents of stainless steel.
Throughout the property you will notice that everything is well designed. This modern home flows well - the living and bedroom areas open onto decks and patios, taking advantage of the private and landscaped garden. Each area within the house is well thought-out to allow generous natural light and private and comfortable living. Functional spaces are a combination of open-plan and private areas.
The home automation features cover lighting, underfloor heating and main living area curtains (roman blinds). Have the lights ready when you get home at night with the curtains drawn or simply set a lighting scene when relaxing at night.
The home owners have designed the house with attention to detail and built it with high quality fittings and finishes, many of which are listed below.
