Benshulla Drive meanders quietly along the hillside and around a large reserve dotted with trees which shade a central play gym. Among the North facing dwellings opposite the park, one in particular stands out. An impeccably neat, modern two storey home surrounded by manicured hedges and flawless lawns is hard to overlook.

The clean geometry and restrained palette of the fa?ade has timeless appeal. It folds into the central front door where an adjacent water feature fits comfortably. The sound of trickling water drifts indoors establishing a relaxing mood from the moment you step inside.

Attention to detail and perfect execution sets this home apart from the rest. The interior possesses a sculptural quality; curved walls and multi-levelled ceilings play with light and shadow emphasising the precision finishing. They suggest distinction, like in the entry or in the expansive lounge/dining room, where the change in ceiling height defines a space within a space. Lounge chairs are arranged around a gas fireplace at one end. At the other end, a large dining table can comfortably fit 8 to 10 guests. Finally, a polished Red Cedar bar with granite counter and wine chiller fronts a floor to ceiling timber wine rack to display sizable collection tucked neatly in one corner.

The entry foyer divides the formal entertaining and the living areas on the lower level. The casual living side is imbued with a sensation of lightness and freedom. Square set openings in the curved wall maintain unbroken sight-lines across the large area and a central void spanning both levels exaggerate the internal scale.

Encapsulated within the central curved space is the combined kitchen and meals area. Extending into the rear yard, gentle morning light pours in.

This kitchen is a masterpiece of aesthetics and practical solutions and has been featured in Hunter Lifestyle Magazine in recognition of these qualities. It is the result of the owners ingenuity and professional experience in kitchen design and fabrication. The dynamic space celebrates the creative culinary process and is arranged so that everything you need is at your finger-tips when you need it.

Granite benchtops twinkle in the light passing through the glass tile panels by day. At night, benchtops are illuminated from recessed lights under the overhead cabinetry. The glass splashback compliments the tones in the granite and matt white cabinetry surround top of the range stainless steel appliances, such as the free-standing iLVE gas cooktop with dual electric ovens and canopy rangehood. A huge central island bench provides abundant preparation and serving space. Storage is second to none, ingenious storage systems maximise capacity and easy accessibility. This kitchen is guaranteed to impress even the most fastidious cooks.

While this residence was completed a decade ago, astute application of colour and select finishes ensure this is an enduring classic.

Spotted Gum polished timber floors are both durable and inviting. On trend Beech timber cabinetry in the laundry and bathrooms work with brown pearl granite benchtops. In both the ensuite and main upper bathroom, twin recessed basins, semi-frameless showers, polished floor tiles and bevelled edge mirrors demonstrate close attention to detail. The addition of a large spa off the main bathroom offers therapeutic relaxation after a busy day.

The surrounding bedrooms are over-sized with built-ins and the master bedroom/parents retreat has a sizable walk-in robe. Completing the upper level, a separate storage room can easily be transformed into a study nook, sewing room or any number of things due to its extended size.

Furthermore, the study on the lower level is yet another flexible room offering scope for many uses depending on your requirements.

Appealing to the entertainer, two separate covered outdoor spaces exist either side of the kitchen. Extending from the lounge room, a private enclosed area is suitable for more intimate occasions. On the opposite side, an open alfresco area enjoys the surrounding leafy backdrop. Perfect lawns and landscaped gardens set the scene for events with family and friends at any time of year.

Bolwarra Heights is a pleasant neighbourhood, where folks walk their dogs and children ride their bikes around the quiet streets. A local primary school and several sporting complexes and clubs are nearby. Maitland CBD is just a short drive away for shops, transport, entertainment and a wide range of services.

Access to the M1 Motorway is just beyond East Maitland, linking to Sydney in around 2 hours, or visit the Hunter vineyards and upper valley in around half an hour. Newcastle is approximately 45 minutes away by car, or half an hour on an express train from Maitland.

On the market for the very first time, this modified Montgomery home has been immaculately maintained over the years resulting in what appears to look like a brand new residence today.
