    ENTERTAINING is a joy in this custom-built prestige home, which boasts a resort-style swimming pool with luxurious cabana, large timber deck, tiled undercover barbecue area and enough off-street parking for 10 vehicles.

    The current owners designed their dream home 11 years ago with the aim of making it a stylish and spacious haven for visitors. Every detail has been considered and all inclusions built to a superior standard.

    Guests enter the single-storey home through double timber and slumped glass doors that are locked using an electronic security system instead of a key.

    The foyer of polished porcelain tiles and a travertine feature also has a maroon wall with a mirror, hiding plumbing that could be used to turn it into a water feature.

    Turn left and guests will come to the first of five bedrooms, with cream-coloured carpet and light fawn walls that are the base for a neutral colour palette that echoes throughout the property.

    The expansive carpeted formal lounge and dining room has chocolate-coloured blockout curtains behind silk drapery and an elephant skin-coloured feature wall, which has a Jetmaster gas fireplace that could be converted to accommodate a wood fire.

    Turn right from the foyer and guests will find another four carpeted bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and separated by insulated walls.

    The master bedroom has an eggplant-coloured feature wall, superb views over the outdoor entertainment area, blockout curtains and an impressive walk in-wardrobe with a shoe wall.

    Its en suite is larger than most family bathrooms, with floor-to-ceiling tiles, a frameless shower with rainwater-style head, heated towel rails, two stand-alone basins, a bath and a separate toilet.

    The main bathroom further down the hallway has a slump-glass mirror, stand-alone sink atop chocolate-coloured granite, free-standing cabinetry, a deep bath, semi-frameless shower and a separate toilet.

    An open-plan kitchen and dining area is the heart of the home.

    The kitchen has caramel-coloured Caesarstone benchtops and soft-close drawers in shades of mocha and cocoa, as well as a built-in Miele dishwasher.

    It also features a DeLonghi convection microwave oven, a walk-in butler’s pantry and room for a double-door fridge.

    A Smeg recessed stove cooktop and rangehood sits against a glass splashback and mirrored glass tiles and atop a 900mm wide oven.

    This area is just steps away from the laundry, with an indoor clothesline and plenty of storage space, and the three-car garage, which features a workshop.

    An informal living area, also with blockout curtains, opens through sliding doors to the sprawling 12-metre by 10-metre timber deck. From here, guests can move seamlessly to the tiled undercover barbecue area and bathroom.

    Walking up a few stairs covered with travertine tiles and through a frameless glass fence and visitors will reach the salt-chlorinated 12-metre by seven-metre solar-heated swimming pool, surrounded by a border of black marble granite floor tiles.

    The cabana is built using recycled timber from the Lithgow Bridge and beckons guests to recline and while away the afternoon.

    From the pool area guests can move to the large lawn with half-pipe and cubbyhouse, or the concrete pad outside the garage, which is the ideal area to rollerskate, ride bikes or park other vehicles.

    Top-line features throughout the house include solid soundproof timber doors, an in-ground lawn and hedge watering system, ducted airconditioning and Crimsafe security screens on some windows and doors.
