AS I admired the huge main bedroom and gorgeous en suite, I failed to notice the city skyline from the balcony of this Bedford home.
In my defence I didn’t realise the city was so close, but it’s hard to miss once you look, and it no doubt made a stunning backdrop for the recent Skyworks.
Sitting on 383sqm, this four-bedroom house is shiny, new and luxuriously appointed.
From the street the home has a federation look, but that is quickly dispelled as you pass through a long hallway and enter the sweeping open-plan, where light floods through a prism of windows and glass doors.
The dove grey cupboards and drawers in the generous kitchen are a pleasant contrast to the white walls, as is the soft, biscuit-brown tiles on the floor.
Almost floor-to-ceiling doors and windows in the living space look out onto a delightful alfresco, which is north-facing and has a timber ceiling. It’s is a great spot to crank up the built-in-barbecue and peruse the Sunday papers.
The alfresco overlooks a terraced lawn, flanked by lilly pilly trees, that offers respite for the eye and a natural playground for kids.
Back inside, bright sunshine lights the way to the second-level bedrooms, courtesy of skylights in the cathedral ceiling.
There’s a theatre room on this level, and it would make a great kids’ play area when it’s too hot or wet outside.
Situated on Rosebery Street on the Inglewood border, this delightful home is within walking distance of schools, parks, and public transport.
