Brookfield house with one-of-a-kind design hits market
From curved corrugated iron ceilings to exposed brick and angular windows, this Brookfield house is one-of-a-kind.
Balraj and Aishwarya Somal bought the house at 5 Preston Place nearly six years ago after they were drawn to the unusual look of the property.
“We liked the unique design and the character of the home,” Mr Somal said.
The architecturally designed property, believed to be built in the late 1990s, has four bedrooms and three bathrooms over a number of levels.
In the time the Somals lived at the property, they made a number of improvements, from tiling downstairs, and landscaping the front and rear gardens.
The house has numerous living spaces, with formal and informal areas, but it is in the downstairs living room that Mr Somal would say was his favourite.
“It is a nice open space with a view over the swimming pool,” Mr Somal said.
“That’s where we relax and have a cup of coffee.”
Outdoors is an inground pool with a lane for swimming laps, and upstairs is a deck for entertaining.
The house has luxury inclusions from built-in speakers throughout the main living areas, an intercom system and ducted airconditioning.
There is even a temperature controlled wine cellar off the bar, which is on the lower level.
A walk-in wardrobe off the master bedroom has New Guinea Rosewood timber shelves, and the view from the spa bath is something you would expect from a hinterland retreat.
Mr Somal said the house would suit a family.
“It’s a really nice, family orientated area,” he said.
“It’s a safe area, with good neighbours and good schooling — it’s very desired.”
