This stunning, four-bedroom, family home sits within the quiet, suburb of Evatt where children ride their bikes along leafy streets, and everyone knows their neighbours. Lovingly restored by a creative young couple with an acute eye for detail and quality, macdowell.home, champions the kind of craftsmanship, that only a dedicated builder can bring to his own home - blackbutt timber floors, recessed automatic blinds, double glazing and natural bespoke features, using stone, and recycled timber.

The result is a house of elegant precision, luxuriously pared-back and offering that elusive combination of tranquillity and functionality. All the superfluous elements have been removed, making way for space, light, simplicity, seamless flow to the outdoors and a wonderful sense of order.

Sheltered by established trees, the home has gorgeous street appeal - circular drive, bluestone feature wall, timber accents, front porch and wide, welcoming entrance door.

The felt sense of serenity within has a lot to do with the abundant light that is ushered into the home, from various windows and banks of glass doors. A continuous palette of white, soft grey, timber and black accents furthers this feeling of order, and calm. While the use of rescued timber from the old Bermagui wharf and recycled ironbark to create shelving and timber partitioning provides a warm, earthy touch.

The hearth of the home - a free-standing, bluestone mantle, housing a modern two-sided gas fireplace - is a gorgeous focal point that delineates the cosy living room from the more robust, open kitchen, dining, living. Very much the heart of the home this generous arena is graced by northern light and opens to a western deck and pretty garden. Stacking glass doors, disappear seamlessly into the wall cavity, welcoming the outside in, connecting with nature, celebrating afternoon light.

The kitchen has a contemporary luxe edge, with a stone waterfall island bench, soft-touch cabinetry, feature window, glass pendant lighting, Bosch appliances, including double ovens, induction cooktop and integrated dishwasher, and a walk-in pantry. It's the kind of kitchen that makes you a better cook - light-dappled benches, incredible storage and generosity of proportion, that easily accommodates family life, celebrations and events.

The master bedroom, with an extensive built-in robe and luxury ensuite, with twin basins and a walk-in rain shower, overlooks the front garden, is set apart from the children's sleeping zone, and is a lovely, sequestered parent's retreat.

Two further bedrooms, both with built-in-robes and leafy outlooks, are centred around a modern family bathroom, with a freestanding tub and separate powder room.

A fourth bedroom, with a built-in desk and shelving, occupies the opposing side of the house and is perfect for a home office or private, guest room.

The covered, rear deck, takes in views of rooftops, and established trees and overlooks the lush, easy-care flat lawn with hedge wall and magnolia trees. There is a built-in barbecue with cabinetry and sink, blackbutt feature batons and downlights and blinds that shelter from the western sun. Perfect for alfresco dining, think easy weekend cookouts - family, friends, neighbours, spilling into the garden, gathering around the fire pit, watching the kids play on the lawn as the sun sets.
