SET high on a hill in Yanchep, this luxurious, five-bedroom home in the Capricorn estate has coastal views and privacy, thanks to an elevated 501sqm block.
A convenient location and clever, sophisticated design make it ideal for a family – and a big one at that.
Close to Yanchep Lagoon, a school, parks, playgrounds and a cafe, it is also close to the new shopping centre, the Sun City Country Club golf course, Yanchep National Park, Two Rocks marina and the Butler train station.
The design maximizes a long block to allow Indian Ocean glimpses from the front verandah, family room and main bedroom.
A lofty, open plan living area flows seamlessly from the centrally-located gourmet kitchen to the dining area and lounge room, the latter which opens onto the front verandah.
Because of this, there’s an inherent feeling of spaciousness throughout, enhanced by an al fresco area under the main roof and opposite the kitchen, with high ceilings and timber floors throughout adding to the roomy feeling.
The kitchen has stone bench tops, glass splash backs, plenty of cupboards, a kitchen island and breakfast bar, a dishwasher and top-of-the-range appliances.
It also has a funky study nook and a roomy, walk in pantry and scullery, the latter which opens onto a big laundry with extra storage.
The elegant main bedroom has deep, built-in robes and a glamorous ensuite with a spa bath, double vanity, big shower and toilet.
A smart-wired home theatre is located near the kitchen and rear sleeping quarters.
Bedroom two and three are king-sized, and have double and triple built-in robes respectively.
The others are queen-sized and sport double built-in-robes.
All of these bedrooms have access to a sleek bathroom.
The open plan layout means parents can have privacy at the front but still be connected to the children at the back.
Built by Dale Alcock Homes, the house has been designed using passive solar principles and has a five star energy rating.
Insulated walls, including the extra-long garage and work space, contribute to this rating.
Smart-wired and containing data outlets to bedrooms and living areas, it also has basswood window shutters, a C-bus lighting system, and fibre optic internet.
Three phase power is another plus, and for those who like boating, there’s an extra driveway and parking at the rear for a boat or trailer.
