In the funky village of Tighes Hill, Throsby Creek meanders its way through town.
A park full of roses and playgrounds, willows that dance into the water, everchanging ripples of shimmer and glow.
On the bank of the creek, sitting in a prime absolute waterfront location, you will find
41 Tighes Terrace.
Entry to the home is through gorgeous French doors and into the brightly lit foyer – the sunshine reflecting on the Merbau timber.
Follow the steps from the foyer into the large dining and family space and be impressed by the sweeping views of the treetops and flowing creek beyond.
This large property has views to the river and landscaped garden from almost every room, yet feels incredibly private.
Double opening, stackable sliding glass doors can be opened onto both decks, creating space and breeze throughout the home.
The eastern deck is bathed in morning sunshine, with golden light spreading across Throsby Basin and the Grahame Bridge. Opening to the living room, dining room and bedroom, this is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast and watch the morning kayakers paddle upstream.
The western deck, perfect for the weekend BBQ, enjoys afternoon warmth as you count the birds or watch the sun set over the creek.
Even in the cooler months the winter blues will be kept far away, with cosy time spent inside overlooking the vibrancy of the outdoors, while the reverse cycle ducted air conditioning keeps you comfortable.
Adjacent to the living area, a formal living room – currently set up as an office and media room – is accessed via two colourful salvaged Indian doors.
The salvaged doors – from wool stores – also feature in the master bedroom.
There are views from the bed over the gardens and creek, an extra large walk-in closet and an ensuite that features a twelve jet spa bath and relaxing, leafy outlook.
Downstairs at the garden level, through the rumpus room, is a library that opens to the vegetable patch.
No need to walk upstairs if you want a cup of tea with your afternoon read – the library also features a kitchenette.
Three large bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, are also downstairs.
As is a family bathroom with separate toilet. Across the hall, an extra large storage room with enough room for linen and accessories.
The pleasures of growing your own fruit and vegetables are the focus behind the delightful design of this home garden which features olive trees, citrus trees, herbs and passionfruit vines covering the fences. Three large vegetable gardens sit in full sun to keep you eating fresh all year long.
And just thinking about all that fresh produce brings us back upstairs to the kitchen.
The heart of the home: bright and open, communal and modern. Serviced by a gas cooktop with two wok burners, a long burner and matching rangehood.
Granite island and benchtops are complemented by the clean lines of angled push-open doors, a hidden fridge and beautiful pendant lighting.
All designed to capitalise on those views.
