Generous Craighall property’s rooms are flooded with sunshine

A property measuring 3707m² in a quiet boomed road with sunset views suited the needs of the owners of this immaculate Craighall property. They liked the country feel of the suburb.

Three years ago they completely rebuilt their home into a vast contemporary farmhouse, with soaring ceilings and rooms flooded with sunlight. The architect and builder were sensitive to the brief for an ecostyle home.

One enters via double doors into a hallway with attractive feature tiles. Beyond, the barn-style reception houses the kitchen, lounge and dining area with aluminium stack doors leading to a veranda.

Casement windows provide all-day light. Ceilings are exposed and white beams support large chandeliers and lanterns. The well-designed kitchen offers ample work space, fitted Miele appliances and a central island. A separate scullery/laundry leads into a mud room and double garage.

Off the central lobby is a large glass wine cellar, a guest cloakroom and two private studies. A TV/playroom opens on to a traditional pillared veranda, offering the opportunity for extensive outdoor living with endless skyline views.

Downstairs has a guest bedroom suite. Upstairs accommodates a pyjama lounge and four bedrooms (two en-suite).

A Jack & Jill bathroom serves two other bedrooms. The main suite has a dressing area and semi open-plan bathroom. All upstairs rooms enjoy remarkable views.

Above the double garage is a large studio/office/gym. There are also two more garages, plus a one-bedroom cottage/housekeeper’s accommodation above and a gardener’s cloakroom.

The indigenous garden has been professionally landscaped to create rolling lawns, a terrace with heated pool and shrub-lined borders. The garden is irrigated with a borehole.

Eco features on the property include solar panels, storage batteries and gas geysers.
