High-calibre home with a deck worthy of its own postcode

This striking elevated home centred on a corner block commands attention from the street and seals the deal with spectacular living and entertaining spaces that will feature epic gatherings for years to come.

It's hard to miss the home's unique drawcard; an 85sqm covered front deck supported with resplendent recycled Karri uprights from the Albany Wool Store, Western Australia and timber bannister railings from the old Echuca paddle steamer wharf.

Capable of hosting 50+ people and with unobstructed views to the east, the private deck is equipped with a commercial-size wood-fired pizza oven, gas bayonets for BBQ or heaters, a sink, café-style gas heating, ceiling fan and handcrafted lighting.
From here it's just a step through sliding doors to the open-plan family room and stylish black, white and grey kitchen with adjacent dining space.

Yet anyone looking for a spot away from party central can continue past these to the large rear leisure room. It's a space that has access through one set of sliding doors to a rear deck and the flat backyard, and through an opposing set of sliding doors to the huge kitchen garden at the other. The children or teens in your life can make this room their own, or you can claim it for indoor entertaining.

When the pizzas are eaten and wine stops flowing, simply waft away to your spacious master where there's both a walk-in wardrobe plus a separate built-in wardrobe. The substantial master ensuite has generous storage, underfloor heating and a walk-in shower with two showerheads.

Easy walking to some of Cook's most loved eateries and walking trails and a short ride or commute to schools, retail, hospitals, universities and office precincts, this memorable family home will have an immensely positive impact on your lifestyle.
