Light floods through large windows high in the room. The kitchen features granite benchtops and induction oven. Several sitting areas provide choices with 2 sets of glass doors opening to a sundrenched, full width entertainer's deck.

It expands out to the rear where you can bask in afternoon sun watching children play in the sparkling pool surrounded by landscaped terraced gardens.
