An architectural beauty combining an abundance of space with a functional design, this magnificent five-year-old home is sure to have buyers beating a path to its impressive front door.

Constructed in 2013 by McDonald Jones Homes, the house is a customised version of the builders popular Monaco One Elite design, with five bedrooms, multiple living areas and an extended alfresco area that wraps around the back of the house to provide expansive indoor outdoor entertaining options.

The home sits on a 1300sqm block at the top of the prestigious Morpeth Manor estate in Raworth, with views from the rear towards the distant mountain ranges.

Built with a Pavilion facade to give the frontage a contemporary look, it features a painted brick finish, contrasting rendered columns, aluminium awning windows and a horizontal portico screen, while established planting and a formal hedge enhance its kerb appeal.

Limestone tiling in the portico adds to the luxury look of the home, while an oversized front door creates a grand entrance statement. The door opens onto a central hallway, which flows into a spacious childrens activity room surrounded by three bedrooms, providing the perfect chill-out zone for the younger members of the family.

The main bathroom and a separate powder room are included in the functional layout of this area, with the powder room also accessible from the entrance hall.

A fifth bedroom added to the original house design by the owners is located on the opposite side of the foyer, with all four generously-proportioned childrens bedrooms including built-in wardrobes and enough floor space to create a valuable study area ideal when the kids needs that extra bit of peace and quiet to complete their homework.

The master suite is located at the end of the entry hall to the right, separated from the other bedrooms by a well-appointed laundry, huge walk-in wardrobe and opulent ensuite.

Impressive design elements and luxury inclusions help create a parents sanctuary at the heart of the home, with a peaceful and practical ambience that make it a welcoming retreat after a long day.

From the size of the sleeping quarters to the sheer volume of storage on offer, the master suite epitomises the feeling of comfortable grandeur that is evident throughout the home.

Aside from an extensive walk-in wardrobe, complete with shelving and hanging space, the bedroom also includes a separate triple door built-in wardrobe that was installed in a large furniture recess opposite the bed.

Storage areas are also abundant in the spacious ensuite, with an oversized wall hung vanity incorporating six drawers and two double-door cabinets. Luxury features including twin semi-recessed square basins set into the 20mm Caesarstone benchtops which give the ensuite a resort-quality finish, while a large shower recess, concealed toilet and quality tiling complete the practical elements.

Plush chocolate coloured carpet creates a feeling of comfortable luxury in the bedrooms and media room, while the golden tones of the bamboo flooring that flows from the front door through to the rear living areas add an element of warmth and life to the vast spaces.

Sleek ceiling fans, cool white plantation shutters and LED downlights complement the contemporary interior styling, while practical elements such as the reverse cycle ducted air conditioning and nine foot ceilings add to the overall appeal of the home.

The rear half of the floorplan is dedicated to the familys main living spaces, with a dedicated media room, expansive kitchen and open plan family and dining room that connects seamlessly with the outdoors.

With double timber and glass panel doors, the media room is a versatile space that can feel connected to the rest of the living areas or be completely closed off for an undisturbed cinematic experience enhanced by sound proofing and a wired-in surround sound system. Built-in cabinetry provides the perfect space to set up your television and entertainment systems, while also acting as a decorative display unit for your most precious mementos.

The media room is located opposite the homes vast gourmet kitchen, offering a stunning combination of clean lines and quality fittings.

Continuing the beautiful neutral colour palette used throughout the rest of the house, the kitchen has been designed with a combination of soft brown tones and cool white surfaces to produce a stylish centrepiece for the home.

Gloss white cabinetry contrasts perfectly against the warmer tones of the 40mm Caesarstone benchtop and matching glass splashback, while the stainless steel appliances, including a 900mm freestanding oven and cooktop, and feature chrome tapware add another level of polish to the overall look.

A vast L-shaped island bench helps to define the kitchen space while also providing extensive breakfast bar seating along two of its sides, while a double door pantry delivers additional storage options.

The kitchen integrates perfectly into the open plan dining and family room at the rear of the home, with three sets of stacker doors creating a seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor living spaces.

A crystal-look chandelier adds a touch of casual elegance to the dining area, while a lavish gas fireplace surrounded by earthy-toned feature tiles and built-in shelving create an eye-catching feature in the cosy family room space.

This area overlooks a covered alfresco space to the side and rear of the home, which steps down to the landscaped backyard and dazzling pool area.

Installed parallel to the side fence line, the 10m long in-ground salt water swimming pool is the hero of the backyard, with glass panel fencing along the edge of the alfresco area making the most of this stunning view from inside the home.

A mixture of luxurious limestone paving and a synthetic grassed area provide plenty of room to relax on sun loungers or at a table while watching the kids in the pool, or listening to the peaceful trickle of the stacked stone water feature.

Lapped and capped timber fencing and an established photinia hedge further down the backyard ensure absolute privacy along this boundary, while post and wire fencing on the opposite side of the backyard ensure it is secure enough for pets.

Additional hedging, feature shrubs, garden beds and a large expanse of lush lawn provide a welcoming green landscape where the kids can run around and kick a football, while a cabin-style timber cubby house will encourage hours of imaginative play.

An attached double garage complete with remote controlled panel lift door and single width drive-through roller door ensure easy access to the back yard, along with an additional gate to the side.

Ideal for large families and those who love to entertain at home, this property is in a class of its own, with luxury inclusions inside and out and an enviable location minutes from the attractions of historic Morpeth.
