Classic weatherboards and roof tiles give this GJ Gardner showhome a strong street presence.

"The design has great street presence being finished in an aerated concrete and plaster system matched with the warmth of cedar shiplap weatherboards and a tile roof," he says.

And the house is just as impressive on the inside. High, raking ceilings running through the two living areas accentuate the feeling of spaciousness. At the same time, classic operable shutters bring added charm, as well as privacy from the street, and work well with the solid oak flooring seen in the kitchen and dining areas.

The house also includes a light-filled study, a two-car garage, and hydronic in-slab heating so you have a luxuriously warm home year round. Plus there's a modern gas fire for those that like to see where the warmth is coming from.
