Wrought iron details for a Strathfield home
No lack of space for a large family
BY VICTORIA CRAW
It’s set amid Homebush Rd’s mix of heritage and modern homes and caters perfectly to the needs of a large family.
The facade has wrought iron gates and a neutral colour scheme, with a landscaped garden facing the street. Large doors open to reveal a tiled atrium with a sweeping stairway up to the second level.
A fifth bedroom or study is located on the right while a downstairs bathroom is just next door. The left-hand side is taken up by a formal lounge, dining and casual living area. It’s easy to imagine how the house would work for entertaining with such spaces on offer.
Bi-folding glass doors line the back wall and opens on to a covered outdoor dining area.
The kitchen sits on the opposite side of the ground floor with a large black benchtop and oversized island.
It contains a large fridge, gas cooktop and dishwasher and leads to a second family dining area which overlooks the backyard. A deep pool outside is surrounded by a tiled sunbathing terrace, while a cabana contains a bathroom and drinks fridge for long days spent in the summer sun.
On the second level, stairs lead to a spacious landing lined with parquet floors.
Four double bedrooms branch off in all directions, each with high ceilings and a generous amount of floor space. Two also contain ensuites.
The master bedroom has a walk-in robe that would make some living rooms look small, and an ensuite with a spa bath.
Another two double bedrooms face the rear of the home, separated by a family living area which has access to a terrace balcony overlooking the pool.
The lower level has parking for eight cars, with another rumpus room and huge storage area which could easily be turned into a gym, workshop or cinema.
