House of the week: 249 Morpeth Road, Raworth

From the front verandah of this brick and tiled roof home you’ll gaze across formal manicured gardens to the peaceful water vista of Howes Lagoon, while in other directions you can take in the rolling hills of surrounding farmland.

The front garden offers a warm welcome to the 1592sq m property and a white double door entry gives a grand first impression. The home offers large open-plan living, light-filled interiors and large feature windows to make the most of the stunning views. 

Feature timber balustrading separates the living from the kitchen and dining area without closing the space off.

The kitchen will impress with its long, laminate benches and white cabinetry, with leadlight feature cabinets. There’s also a dishwasher, a double basin sink for those that prefer the old fashioned method of cleaning up and a designated appliance nook.

Upstairs is a loft that makes for an ideal study or chillout space for teenagers.

The home has 4 bedrooms, the large master suite is filled with natural light and has sliding doors leading out to the rear yard. There are double walk-in robes and a renovated en-suite. The other bedrooms are all large and share the main bathroom.
