18 Minura Court,
Hampton's inspired design in DoonanPop the cork - you have just found that special one. Just 6 months old, this Doonan beauty is as versatile and elegant as Blanchett, as cool and captivating as Bacall - but without the drama.
Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac, and backing on to rainforest reserve, the home on one easy-care acre offers absolute privacy. The perfect north-easterly aspect to the rear ensures it is flooded with natural light year round.
Stepping inside through the cool, deep verandah, the vibe is fresh, spacious and understated, with clean lines, high ceilings (2.7m / 9ft) and meticulous attention to detail.
Oozing quality throughout, but with everyday practicality inbuilt, the home features engineered timber floors with a tough French oak laminate, weatherproof plantation shutters, bespoke 2-pac shelving and cabinetry (all soft-close drawers) and stone benchtops. All rooms are fully screened.
The kitchen alone is worthy of an Oscar, with a scene-stealing 4m-long, 40mm-thick, stone benchtop; stylish tapware; 900mm gas cooktop and oven; Smeg dishwasher; and contemporary lighting. The luxurious butler's pantry with custom shelving will delight the untidiest of chefs.
From both the kitchen and nearby open-plan dining and lounge zones, expansive, sliding glass doors offer grand views to the rear, where the sparkling pool beyond offers the eye a delightful symmetry.
The separate large family room comes with air conditioner and quality bespoke shelving. A large games/media room with sound-proofing for acoustic privacy and glass doors to the rear alfresco area could be used as a 5th bedroom.
All four bedrooms are bright and spacious, with large windows, air conditioning, built-ins with custom shelving, and classy charcoal-toned carpet. Guest bedroom 1 comes with its own ensuite, large glass shower, rainhead and beautiful dove gray tiles. Guest bedrooms 2 and 3 are situated near the main bathroom which has a stunning freestanding bathtub and separate toilet. Standard in all 3 bathrooms are the floating cabinet, undermounted sink and a large glass-wall shower with nanocoat treatment for easy maintenance.
The master suite is big, it's bright, it's beautiful. The massive walk-in robe includes custom cabinetry, and the large ensuite is designed for two, with huge shower and double vanity.
The custom-designed laundry is a star in its own right, fully tiled, with stone benchtop, two built-in laundry hampers and crimsafe external door. And what about the walk-in linen cupboard? Chores suddenly seem less like chores.
A generous sized office is located near the main entrance and is fitted with custom desk and shelving.
Also vying for an award is the massive alfresco zone running the length of the house at the rear. The smooth, marble tiles laid in a French pattern will have you kicking off your shoes. The built-in barbecue comes with the same 2-pac custom cabinetry as inside, stainless steel benchtop, commercial rangehood and DeLonghi drinks fridge. Topped off with surround sound and cooling fans, it's the perfect spot for gin and tonics with friends on a sultry evening or a lazy brunch on a winter's morning.
A plunge in the sandstone, solar-heated saltwater pool is but a few steps away. Your guests can spread out across the lush lawn (a perfect location for a granny flat) or gather round the fire pit. All gardens are fully landscaped with quality plants and the property is fully fenced.
With absolutely no corners cut, and low maintenance designed into every aspect of this home, there's nothing for you to do but settle in, charge your glasses, and toast your leading lady. You'll be pinching yourself.
