IN an enclave so new that Google Maps doesn’t have a read on it yet, this striking modern family home takes pride of place.
Driving into Spring Farm Estate, it was easy to spot this exceptional dwelling in its elevated, hillside position.
Harcourts Signature New Town property representative Nick Cowley described the four-bedroom home as “stylish and elegant”.
“It would be among the highest-quality builds I have seen,” he said.
“In this industry we come across plenty of beautiful homes, but what makes this one stand out to me is the finishes are such a high quality.
“The builder, James Jubb of the Modern Building Company, has carefully considered every single detail.”
Walking through the home, Nick highlighted impressive feature after impressive feature, from the generous size of the bedrooms to the stone benchtops, blackbutt timber flooring, commercial-grade carpet, the spotted gum deck, matt-finish floor-to-ceiling tiles or the under-floor heating in every bathroom.
He said creating a home where living was easy was a goal that the builder had exceeded.
“Often it is the little things that make a big difference, like having two showerheads, or a cutout in the tile so there is somewhere to pop your shampoo,” Nick said.
The floor plan stretches across two levels, with easy access into a double garage at the front, and heaps of room to play out the back.
The master bathroom is striking and spacious, including a gorgeous vanity with a large mirror, a standing dual-head shower, under-floor heating and a magnificent above-floor bathtub.
Across the hallway is a bedroom with built-ins, a laundry that features the same finishes that are on display throughout the home, then another bedroom, before the hall opens to the living areas.
There is another bedroom — and a huge storage space — on the ground floor. It also has an ensuite and built-ins, making it a perfect space for a teen.
The home’s main living zone features a gourmet kitchen, a lounge and a covered deck with LED lighting, an outdoor heater and hillside views.
The living room windows are retractable and a superb way to bring the outdoors inside by folding back the glass.
The contemporary kitchen is simply superb. It boasts a bench that doubles as a breakfast bar, top-of-the-line Asko stainless-steel appliances, timber cupboards, a butler’s pantry, a deep stainless-steel sink in gun metal, while matt-black features such as the tapware in this area tie in with those found throughout the home.
Spring Farm Estate is among Kingston’s newest developments, a beautiful estate just minutes from the town centre.
This sunny neighbourhood is fringed with bushland, and from Apolline Drive there are views of kunanyi/Mount Wellington, rolling hills, paddocks and the suburb beyond.
With its top-of-the range contemporary fittings and materials, combined with a warm and welcoming family home feel, Nick expects this property to appeal to a range of buyers.
He described it as a “fresh, modern take” on home construction that feels elegant and timeless at the same time.
This home at No.32 Apolline Drive, Kingston is priced at “Offers over $785,000”.
