It's for good reason that indoor and outdoor connections are a favourite line of conversation for those involved in real estate. An easy flow between inside and out is a great way to maximise your lifestyle.
Located on a corner site in Harrowglen Albany, this large, Tuscan-inspired house features numerous patio areas that offer access to the sun at different times of the day. A Jalcon Homes project, it is comprised of four bedrooms and large open-plan living and dining areas, says Ingrid van Leeuwen, the company's sales and marketing manager.
"Jalcon Homes has a varied palette of building styles. This large family home emphasises classic country styling and quality finishes, including textured plaster, stone veneer, and a Monier tile roof."
The attention to quality is obvious from the full-height cedar front door that opens into a lobby with exposed second floor balustrading.
"Timber flooring flows through the entry foyer, dining, family and kitchen areas, adding charm and character. The kitchen has a homely, rustic ambience and includes a stone bench with a butler's sink. The open-plan family and dining room flow out to a covered patio, extending from there to a well-maintained garden."
The formal lounge provides a separate entertaining space, and the ambience here is enhanced by the gas fireplace, a 2.7m-high ceiling, and ornate, solid plaster cornices.
The commitment to comfort extends to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The master suite has a spacious walk-in wardrobe and extensive cabinetry, and the ensuite is one of three bathrooms in the home. Each features floor-to-ceiling tiling, oak vanities and frameless glass shower stalls.
