High-end home

I HAVE an amazing house you might like to review,” the agent texted me.

Luckily I was having lunch nearby and was happy to pop around to Cavendish Street in Highgate.

The minute I saw the interesting raw brick work and staggered skillion roof lines, I was hooked.

Heading inside confirmed just how amazing this home is.

Manicured garden

Natural light bounces off gorgeous, honey-gold marri floors thanks to a plethora of glass, including a bank of floor-to-ceiling doors in the spacious open-plan living area.

The sleek, modern kitchen includes white stone benchtops, a huge island/breakfast bar and golden timber drawers.

Grab a book from the built-in bookshelves in the living area and curl up in front of the gas-powered fire, where smooth round rocks spread an even warmth.

Or head out to the wrap-around timber deck and enjoy the manicured garden, dominated by a massive frangipani.

The deck conceals four underground rainwater tanks, which feed a whopping 30,000 litres into the house for drinking and washing.

Three of the four bedrooms are on the second level, including the huge main with its walk-in-robe, street-facing balcony and ensuite with double marble vanity.

Located below ground level, a basement is acoustically soundproof, ensuring drum practice won’t disturb the neighbours.

Terraced lawn and a pool separate the house from a two-storey studio/pool-house.

The upstairs is currently an office, but it would make a great teenage pad or guest suite.

Hyde Park, Birdwood Square and loads of eateries and shops are within walking distance.
