This contemporary family home provides its owners with large nature light filled living and entertaining areas. A vaulted ceiling along the rear of the home maximises afternoon sunlight into the ground floor Kitchen, Dining and Living areas, while also providing a transition space to exterior entraining areas. The open tread staircase allows this nature light to filter further back into the ground floor. The design allows for both large communal areas and more private living areas for children and parents. The Thompson home includes four spacious bedrooms, two with ensuites.
