DONCASTER EAST A sunken lounge, in open plan with the dining area, gives this house its central character. This is an expansive, light-filled space, with soaring raked ceilings that are lit (above the dining area) by a bank of clerestory windows. The stylish lines of ceilings and polished timber floors give this area contemporary touches that carry through in an adjacent open-plan area – a dining space followed by the kitchen and family/meals area. The CaesarStone kitchen, with a glass splashback that stretches across the full length of the benchtop, has wide storage drawers and display cabinets designed for the cook who likes to have a place for everything and everything in its place. A five-burner Miele hob and a wide AEG oven are the workhorses in this stylish set-up, which includes a gas open fireplace in the family room. Three bedrooms (two with built-in wardrobes, the main with en suite and walk-in wardrobe) are ranged on the other side of the two open-plan areas on this level of the house. A lower-ground floor accommodates an open-plan rumpus/living/sitting room that takes in views of the backyard, which is a stylish composition of a roofed patio, a paved square with planter boxes and water feature, plus a synthetic grass lawn edged by topiary and clipped hedges. This lower level also houses the laundry, gym, garage and storage room. The house is in an area well served by schools and shops, with an entrance to the Eastern Freeway a short drive away. \ SIEW-CHING GOH
