This is a large, three-bedroom house with exceptional internal spaces. All the living areas and bedrooms are north facing to capture maximum light and sun during the cooler months.
Entry is from the south, by the double garage.
The house is entered through a double-volume foyer, with a lobby and a door to the left leading to a guest toilet. The staircase to the first floor is on the right.

The double-volume dining room is a focal point.
The lounge, dining room and open-plan kitchen form one interconnected space with varying ceiling heights. The lounge has a fireplace and leads onto the open patio on the northern side of the house. From the kitchen, a lobby links all the service areas, such as the scullery, pantry and kitchen yard. The kitchen yard is partly covered to provide undercover access to the freestanding double garage. There is access from the kitchen yard to a storage area under the main staircase, as well as a staff toilet with a shower and basin, and a separate garden storeroom.
The landing at the top of the staircase to the first floor has a cantilevered structure with glass blocks as a focal point, which also allows natural light onto the stairwell.
On the first floor, a bridge divides the double-volume spaces above the entrance foyer and dining room. The main bedroom is accessed through a door at the end of the bridge.
