This home's rustic charm is backed by modern-day convenience

Whether you live in the country or simply dream of it, this four-bedroom home reflects a classic country feel but with all modern conveniences included

From the homebuilders:

This high-spec 254m² home reflects old-world country elegance without compromising the convenience of modern day living. 

Enter through a robust Industrial front door and into an open-plan kitchen-living-dining area; your gaze will be drawn up to the white raked ceiling with exposed decorative trusses and chunky bolts. 

Feature lighting accentuates the tongue and groove panel ceiling. 

A generous sized den, separated by a character barn door, includes a cosy gas fireplace, a 2.7m step-up ceiling, feature lighting, built-in book shelving and a chess board ready to play. 

The 4 bedroom, 2 living – with study nook – home is staunchly country with its traditional 135mm Government style skirting, wide architraves and warm coloured furnishings, including Moduleo Impress flooring in Kiwi Wood. 

A glass chandelier hangs above the freestanding bathtub in the master suite, while texture is everywhere – with tan leather couches, cream linen curtains, and charcoal grey Mohair overthrows draping over cotton buttoned couches.
