The ultimate in modern family living, situated on a 1,002m2 parcel of land with elevated views across Eastern View Estate towards Mungabareena and beyond, 18 Grandview Terrace is a stunning piece of award-winning architecture, designed for families of all demographics.
Behind its striking façade, the home has grown extensively over time to encompass three living pods, a testament to the architect David Boyle. The upper section of the home plays host to more formal living areas, which include the central hub of the home – the kitchen and family room. Taking advantage of the easterly orientation, and the stunning elevated views, the spaces overlook the neighbouring homes through clever positioning of the windows, to take advantage of the green treetops and hill scape beyond.

Designed to promote conversation and easy entertainment, the second living space has built in seating to create a conversation pit. Ideal for a multitude of uses, the space can be utilised as a home theatre or games room. With large sliding door access to the family room, the space can also be employed as a further extension to the main living zone when catering for large gatherings.
The master bedroom with ensuite, as well as bedrooms two and three are situated on the upper floor. A family bathroom complete with bath and shower service the accommodation.
Downstairs plays host to a more leisurely aspect of the residence. A third living area opens to a second deck area and pool space.

A statement to the architectural design, the clever positioning of the pool ensures it’s a feature year-round. Tiered gardens along with stunning ornamental displays and water feature encase the home and provide a tranquil private escape.
