Set on a large block backing onto the William Ricketts Sanctuary, this is a stylish, tri-level home with its own garden walks and pond.
A self-contained, renovated cottage offers income potential, and there's a bungalow for teenagers wishing to spread their wings without actually leaving the nest.
There are three living areas, with cathedral ceilings and polished floors.
Up here, the nights can be cold, so this home has an open fireplace, combustion stove and ducted heating.
