Country Home

HIA-CSR ACT and Southern NSW Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards

Winner: Xavier Higgins Building

Aurora Park, Book Book. A custom homestead built for a large family to live the country life in luxury. Nestled in the hills, you immediately feel this home captivate you on arrival. An understated weatherboard, Hamptons style home with a large verandah wrapping around the property to enjoy the serenity from any angle. As you enter you are greeted with a double sided fireplace with stone and timber hearth. Spotted gum timber flooring on bearers and joist throughout the entire home mixed with neutral tones gives a feeling of warmth and comfort. This home features a stately master wing which includes an ensuite, sitting room with open fire, walk in robe and study. All 7 bedrooms have double french timber doors opening out to the expansive verandah that meets with a large deck overlooking the delectable inground pool, the perfect place to entertain. A MasterChef's dream is the stunning open plan kitchen includes a classic victorian style oven, a well-equipped butler's pantry featuring pressed metal splash back, all the modern amenities and a large cool room for extended storage. Judges stated that the home is a credit to the builder and his team, a large-scale home that has been well attended throughout.
