Panoramic views just the beginning | Innovation Tech
WHEN it comes to modern design it’s often the small details that set houses apart.
In a sea of new builds popping up all over the Highton hills it’s the inspired finishes and killer views that help 12 Woolbrae Place stand out from the crowd.
The split-level house is so new you can still catch the scent of its polished timber floorboards when you walk in the front door.
It oozes contemporary style and is jam packed with little luxuries like hydronic heating, double glazed windows and multiple outdoor entertainment areas.
Zoned family living is central to the four-bedroom design which provides panoramic vistas over Highton, the surrounding hills and the You Yangs.

Cleverly positioned black aluminium windows frame the view perfectly from various angles in the main living area on the upper level. Perhaps the most striking of these is a huge glass splashback above the cooktop in the custom kitchen.
But the lower level doesn’t miss out — the second living and two of the three bedrooms down here also have views.
From the street the house presents as a contemporary single-level house dressed with timber and brick.
As the 693sq m allotment drops away, it creates space for three separate levels that are perfect for families craving space and privacy.
On the entry level the main bedroom and a double garage sit on either side of a foyer dressed with timber floors.
Double doors can be closed off to provide complete privacy in the main bedroom which has a generous walk-in wardrobe and stylish ensuite with a frameless shower and separate toilet.
A short flight of timber stairs leads up to the main event — an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area where families will spend most of their time.
It’s hard to draw your eyes away from the view and you can get an even closer look from the large adjoining deck that would an impressive backdrop for any gathering.
The spacious kitchen, crafted by Kerby Kitchens, overlooks it all and displays the house’s trademark quality.
A deep stone bench with decorative timber shelving is the centrepiece, while keen cooks will appreciate the Smeg appliances, including a six-burner gas cooktop, and walk-in pantry.
Next door is a generous study or potential den/children’s playroom with sliding doors onto the deck.
There’s also a handy powder room.
Downstairs a central carpeted rumpus room opens out onto another deck, which provides access to a level lawn where children can play.
There are three minor bedrooms on this level, two with built-in wardrobes and one with a large walk-in wardrobe.
A family bathroom and laundry complete the floor.
An underhouse storage area with insulation and a concrete floor is an added bonus, along with split system airconditioning, motion sensor security system and video intercom.
The property is on the market for $899,000-$988,000. For information phone Barry Plant, Highton agent Kieron Hunter on 0435 798 405.
