When Louise O’Sullivan bought this award-winning property 17 years ago, she was taken by the privacy and peaceful surrounds.
The eco-friendly home was built in the 1990s and won an award for its design.
It is set on a leafy block 1677 square metres in size which backs onto a well-maintained reserve.
Ms O’Sullivan gave the home an overhaul, refreshing the interiors and adding a spacious rear deck, side decks and an in-ground swimming pool.
“All of the interior was orange and pink,” Ms O’Sullivan, who is downsizing, said.
“It was challenging. It was always beautiful but it was never settled. Now I feel it’s a very settled home.”
Louvres and floor-to-ceiling glass were used throughout to capture the leafy aspect. There is open plan living, dining and a stunning black and white kitchen on the main level as well as a study and wine cellar.
Upstairs are four well-appointed bedrooms, a main bathroom and living space. The master suite has a walk-in robe and luxury ensuite.
A choice of retreat-like spaces throughout the property has made the home a private haven for Ms O’Sullivan. It has been a place for relaxed family living as well as an ideal entertainer.
“It’s like being in your own sanctuary, your own little pocket,” she said. “Even the side decks are beautiful and I often just sit there because you’re pocketed away. It’s got lots of beautiful little nooks and crannies.”
The home at 22 Alpha Close in Eleebana is being marketed by Anthony Di Nardo, of Bell Property Charlestown.
It is set for auction on December 1 with offers expected around $1.3 million. The property is open for inspection from noon until 12.30pm on Saturday.
