Prepare to be surprised. This painted brick home with spotted-gum detailing has no shortage of exterior appeal, but stepping inside the 260sqm four-bedroom house takes you to another world. The cladding, so eye-catching on the exterior, is carried through inside. You’ll immediately spot the wood in the sarked ceiling, and the brick in the designer kitchen. And what a kitchen it is: pistachio-coloured cabinetry and panels, a glossy-white engineered stone benchtop with waterfall ends, brass fittings and a farmhouse sink. A polished concrete floor here and in the open-plan dining and living space is a wonderful counterpoint to the elegance, injecting a hint of industrial charm. Bifolds and sliders open the space to a large kwila deck that winds around the north-east facing side of the house and connects it to the swimming pool. A media room, two tiled bathrooms, separate toilet, laundry and four bedrooms complete this clever home that delights in delivering some eye-catching details. You’ll find a dusky pink feature wall in one of the bedrooms, and a double shower with herringbone tiles and brushed brass fittings in the ensuite. However you look at it, this fetching Canterbury home is a revelation.
