Your perfect escape Views to live for: Catch unbroken views of Drury and up to Glenbrook from the main deck. Touch of glass: The main living area comes with valley views. Lifestyle block: There are plenty of green acres for an exceptional outdoorsy lifestyle. It s big, it s beautiful and it takes your breath away! Those with a passion for the good life and the beauty of our natural environment will find it difficult to look away from this spectacular slice of real estate tucked away in an elite Drury subdivision. Exceptionally private, 839 Ponga Road offers the sol- ution to the modern con- undrum -- balancing location and lifestyle. Set amid 11,764 square metres (1.76 hectares) of nature s bounty, the property offers a superb location to bring up your family. From its vantage location, you can catch unbroken and expans- ive views of Drury and up to Glenbrook. It s hard to believe such splendid isolation is available just 10 minutes from the motorway. If the setting is remark- able, the living spaces are designed for family comfort and year-round entertaining. Awash in warm native tim- ber, with high sarked ceilings throughout, the home is centred around a private alfresco courtyard that comes with a heated pool, polished concrete table, sheltered alfresco area, and a spa pool. What you ll observe is that no two rooms are quite alike but each has it s own charac- ter.Downstairs there are a clutch of living areas, includ- ing a formal lounge with fire- place and access to the main deck with those views we just mentioned. Have a relaxed meal or watch the children feed the friendly alpaca, as the sun goes down over the hills. And, of course, you have a share in the 6.46 hectare native bush block. The kitchen is perfectly placed for serving guests on the deck or at the pool. It comes with massive pantries, an island bench, and enter- tainer s oven. There s another lounge that opens out com- pletely via bifolds to the poolside entertainment area. The young ones will likely make territorial claims to the media room that is fully wired for music and HDTV. And it has private access to the deck. The sleeping accommo- dation comprises four double bedrooms. Three bedrooms are located downstairs -- all with sweeping windows that bring in the hills in the dis- tance. They are served by a bathroom with double basins, a bath and a separate shower. Upstairs, you have the parents retreat -- the master bedroom with its own bath- room and toilet. It is well- positioned so you can keep an eye on who s coming or going. Plus, you have a spacious studio, a shed for storing your ride-ons, a big double internal access garage, and plenty of off-street parking for up to a dozen cars. Appearing as if gently dropped into the bush, with minimal impact on the environment, this is the kind of property you will love coming home to. Viewing at open homes Saturdays 1pm to 2pm or by appointment. Priced at $849,000 this must be viewed. Call Fred Heikell of Mike Pero Real Estate on 021 800 499.
