22 Houston Avenue, Strathmore VIC 3041
Extraordinary, Family Entertainers' Luxury
At its heart, the home's impressively sized open-plan kitchen / meals / living is a visually striking space where the functionality of vast stone benches and premium stainless steel appliances is combined with a relaxed flow through 2 sets of double doors to an outdoor entertaining zone that is crafted to inspire awe. Huge windows frame the solar-heated, salt water chlorinated, in-ground swimming pool to facilitate the safe supervision of children, but it is the entertaining zone that is truly without peer.
Stone benches accommodate a teriyaki BBQ and create an amazing 18 person bar - a wonderful place to gather with a pizza from the wood-fire pizza oven and a cool drink from the wine fridge - all while watching a game or a movie on the built-in TV screen with built-in speakers. This is outdoor living like you've never seen.
A formal lounge and a semi-attached dining room balance an easy flow to open-plan living with a welcome degree of separation. Clearly, this is a party-sized home in which people can come together to gather and can also find the space to be alone. Upstairs, an additional upstairs living room can readily be used as a teen retreat / kids zone or even converted to another bedroom.
All current bedrooms are set upstairs with substantial built-in robes. The master bedroom offers parents the luxury of a spacious ensuite with a twin basin vanity and dual-headed shower as well as a private balcony, whilst the remaining bedrooms share access to a family-sized bathroom with an independent bath and shower, separate wc and a balcony that has been enclosed to create a sunroom / gymnasium. A third bathroom is conveniently set downstairs to service the living / entertaining zones.
An enormous 4 car garage further under-lines the commitment to quality exhibited by this remarkable residence in which ducted heating and 8 split system air conditioners ensure year-round comfort. Partly smart-wired, the home features automated roman blinds, feature lighting and sliding doors to the pool, as well as surround sound in the living room, built-in speakers in the outdoor entertaining zone, a waterfall in the swimming pool, an attractive front pond and a children's cubby house.
For a taste of local cafe culture and strip shopping, both Napier St and Mt Alexander Rd are just around the corner from this peaceful streetscape, whilst the local schools are first class, public transport is nearby, Highpoint Shopping Centre is moments away and the local schools are first class.
