Sophisticated haven: 6 Laverock Court, Taylors Lakes, 3038

By Carole Levy

The beautifully executed front garden provides the first hint that this place punches above its weight and, once inside, that’s confirmed in spades. The décor from the owner, a professional interior designer, is a symphony of sophistication, elevating the house substantially.

Combine this with the superb outdoor spaces and the property becomes one that discerning families will be eagerly vying for come auction day.

The first cab off the rank in the entryway is a wallpapered study (or fourth bedroom) laid with pearl-grey porcelain floor tiles which continue as a walkway past a charcoal-carpeted open lounge room. Roman blind-dressed windows in here give a sneak preview of the figure eight-shaped pool – almost like seeing a giant water feature within arm’s reach. Very nice.

It’s in the family living area where the glam steps up a notch. First comes the kitchen, which has a massive stone bench, matt-white 2pac cabinetry including a wall of cupboard pantries, stunning metallic-bronze splashbacks, a Bosch dishwasher and Westinghouse dual wall ovens and 900mm gas cooktop.

A metallic accent wall in the dining area is quite spectacular; it’s made of polished and matte platinum mosaics, vertically laid to resemble a waterfall. Next to this is a wet bar with sublime hardwood joinery, colour matched to the cedar door frames.

A designer black pendant echoes the colour of a long granite hearth/ledge running beneath a gas log fire in the sitting area. Carpet, designed by the owner, has an island rug handstitched into it.

A carpeted hallway leads to the three fitted bedrooms, two of which have natural plantation shutters (also on other windows) and a split-system. The main bedroom, with walk-in robe, has a fully tiled en suite matching the soft-grey décor of the main bathroom, while the laundry and separate toilet also share the hallway.

Adjoining a sheltered barbecue “room” is a gabled pergola where a feature rendered wall is the backdrop to a pair of topiarised ficus trees. Palms, underplanted with birds of paradise, add their vibe to the fenced pool area.

Other perks? Hydronic slab heating, alarm, ducted vac, a garden shed, 10,000-litre water tank and a large Colorbond shed/man cave in a small pristine backyard. This is a cracker property.
