In the Swim - Flagstaff

As stunning as this house is throughout the feature that takes your breath away is the last one you'll see - the swimming pool that sits flush with the generous deck, which itself overlooks a tranquil gully scene.

Little if any of the expansive outdoor entertainment area, including a 20 sq m portico with a raking ceiling could be guessed at from the street view of the house albeit the substantial timber front door and feature stonework suggest good things to come.

And come they do. Four bedrooms, a music room, an office, open plan kitchen, dining and living room, triple car garage and loft storage deliver on the promise made on the welcome mat.

Tying it all together in the house designed and built by Stevenson Designer Building in solid plaster in 2013 is the feature stonework - from the entrance to the lounge feature wall to the pillars on the viewing deck. This is a house that feels grounded and substantial.
