This new country home designed by Don Nelson Architecture offers every modern convenience for family living. Built from solid concrete, the home includes guest accommodation.

Entertaining is a real pleasure when you have all the prerequisites a spacious, inviting home that opens out to a large alfresco living area complete with pool, entertainment pavilion and lush, subtropical landscaping.

This family home, which was designed by Don Nelson Architecture, is exactly such an entertainers' paradise. Although the architecture reflects a strong European influence, the interior has a very contemporary open-plan layout that lends itself to formal and informal entertaining.

Tall columns help to define the various sitting and dining areas on the main floor, and all of these rooms have large bifolds that open right up to the outdoors. Not surprisingly, the home has been designed to maximise the country views and the warmth from the sun in winter.

Children can enjoy a large space to themselves, with a dedicated children's wing with its own central living area.
