Undoubtedly one of the finest and most exciting properties to come on the market this season, Erika is a stunning detached luxury residence which is sure to impress! Conveniently located a mere 2km outside the City Centre, this impeccably presented family home sits comfortably on grounds of circa. 2 acres. Communal pillared electric entrance gates, a winding tarmac driveway and post and rail fencing is the prequel to a separate pillared entrance with wrought iron entrance gates. Beyond, a tree lined gravel driveway leads to an imposing and modern two storey double fronted residence which has been finished with a real attention to fine detailing and timeless ideas. Designed by O'Donnell Dalton Architecture and constructed by Denis Guilfoyle Construction in 2004, the property is setback from the main road in a tranquil setting with exquisitely designed maturing landscaped grounds and outdoor patio spaces. Granite stone tiling and double panelled entrance doors lead to a classical front foyer with attractive black and white floor tiling. Beyond, is a breath taking reception hall with glass atrium, feature fireplace, hanging chandelier and winding staircase to first floor level. Double glass doors to the left, lead to the drawing room which is large and bright, enjoying one hundred and eighty degree views of the outside grounds and gardens. This room is ideal for entertaining guests and family with feature marble fireplace, decorative ceiling molding and recessed downlighting.

Immediately next door is the main family living room with timber floors, feature fireplace and marble surround. This is a bright room with double French doors to outside patio. A single glass door leads to the kitchen/dining area. Definitely a cooks kitchen, this large open plan room is the main hub of the house.

Outside, the grounds have been beautifully manicured and maintained with extensive planting and mature shrubs and trees. This home has been strategically placed to take fully advantage of orientation and the rear patios and gardens enjoy extensive sunlight, when we get it!
