Designed to take in the stunning views and prized northerly aspect, completely renovated and remodeled to exacting standards, this 2-bedroom 2-bathroom home oozes quality, thoughtfulness and that instant appeal where everything feels "just right".
Having stripped the inside bare, taken much of the exterior back to framework, removed and replaced verandas, fully insulated the ceiling, walls and subfloor, and added an outdoor entertaining space, this home has had an extreme makeover of epic proportions.
Imagine being greeted by beautiful gardens on all sides, wandering down your driveway to the wide wrap-around verandah, escaping from the outside world to your own sanctuary. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
Inside you will find a spacious open plan living zone capturing enormous amounts of natural light and winter sunshine thanks to the superb northerly aspect, desired by many but enjoyed by few.
The kitchen, designed by Wilko Cabinets, is an absolute dream and of the highest quality; featuring a stunning island bench of stone and timber, Miele appliances and a fully fitted butler's pantry to finish it all off.
The master bedroom also enjoys the fabulous outlook and features a large ensuite with fitted bath, dual basins, walk in shower with heated floor, heated towel rail and yes, even a heated seat on the loo! Why feel the chill if you don't have to, I say!
The second bedroom is used primarily as an office by our current owners, however guests will enjoy the comfort of a custom-built, queen-size, "fold away" bed also designed by Wilko Cabinets, as part of the home's refurbishment, plus their own ensuite with walk in shower, floating vanity and toilet.
The laundry has been fully fitted for ease of everyday living and it in turn leads through to a fully enclosed mud room providing further storage and space for those not so "everyday" items.
Stackable sliding doors lead from the open-plan living area directly onto a fabulous 7m x 6m covered entertainment and living area with insulated timber-lined ceiling, electric blinds, plantation shutters and sweep fan creating the ideal outdoor room for you to relax in and enjoy life.
European uPVC, low-e, argon-filled, double-glazed windows; solar panels feeding back in to the grid; BBQ deck with power & water; large under house garage & workshop; freestanding single carport & garden shed; 4.5KVA "back up" generator and stunning gardens are just some of the many features you will enjoy at 25 Walkers Lane.

Toni & Erwin
Kylie was very helpful and accommodating to our needs and limited availability to attend inspections. Without Gerard & Kylie’s assistance, I’m not sure we could have achieved the success in purchasing a house that met our wishlist. Thank you.
