But while Candice and Jeremy fell in love with the Bayville's aesthetic, it is the personal touches that make it feel like home. Jeremy's favourite feature is the built-in whisky cabinet and tailored space in the butler's pantry for the wine fridge, while Candice loves the spacious walk-in robe which flows from the master bedroom.
"The master area was one of the things that made us choose the house when we saw it," Candice says with a smile. "I also love the kitchen/living/dining area because if you're inside cooking and doing things, you can see out into the backyard, see the kids. We loved the layout in general - the openness and integration of the spaces, the wide entrance and hallway, the high ceilings. It has a really nice flow and feel.
Home, sweet home
18 months after the fall of the auction hammer and a newborn baby
later, the family of four were ready to move into their brand new two-storey home, just in time for Christmas.
handover before Christmas was very satisfying and such a milestone,"
Jeremy says. "It was great to see our vision come to life, having had to
visualise everything on paper a year out from completion. We could finally relax and enjoy our long-awaited new home over the holidays."
