Entertainer’s dream: 44 Springbank Way, Brookfield, 3338

By Carole Levy

A large classically elegant house, one of the finest outdoor entertainment settings around, stunning gardens on a block of about 0.65 hectares, a back gate to Arnolds Creek and bike tracks, a wonderful secluded feel: what’s not to love about this place?

At the end of a long silver birch-lined driveway ending in a circle, the Federation-style house perches on a battleaxe block so superb that it becomes a major asset – like having one’s own private estate. Garden beauty meets the eye at every turn and only gets more magical once out back. It has wow – so let’s start there.

First, the solar-heated salt pool. It’s rimmed with stunning Turkish travertine, while decking flows under a pavilion housing a giant swinging day bed. A curtain of water cascades from the pavilion’s roof into the pool where coloured lights create a fairyland at night.

Off to the side is a large concrete-floored summerhouse, adjoining which is a Jacuzzi under shelter. It’s a dream set-up for entertainers and every family member.

Gorgeous formal gardens, tempered with dense plantings, take a turn into a natural bushy feel down back where one leafy section is aptly named the ‘wedding corner’. Sweeping lawns dotted with specimen trees, a great chook shed and run, a vegie garden, secure dog run, many fruit and olive trees, and a Colorbond shed accessed via a driveway through side gates add even more lifestyle ingredients.

The immaculately presented house has entry to a tiled walkway where, on the left, a dual-entry open lounge room has a box bay window seat and charcoal designer drapes. Opposite is the large main bedroom with walk-through doored robes and an en suite with Tassie oak vanity, the same timber forming all cabinetry.

Double doors farther along open to a fitted bedroom or study. The other two fitted bedrooms (each with split-system) are down a hallway, shared with main bathroom, separate toilet and storage-rich laundry.

The dining zone and gracious light-filled lounge room (split-system) both have french doors to a giant pergola, sitting between house and freestanding double garage.

The large kitchen has stacks of Tassie oak storage, an island bench and all the mod-cons.

This property is truly one of the jewels in Brookfield’s crown … don’t miss it.
