This thoroughly modernised, quirky four bedroom home sits on a sloped plot in Ridgeway, utilising this natural dip in the landscape to make the most of the entire home.

Inside though, is where the magic happens. Cool minimal touches collide with traditional strokes of design, allowing the space to breathe and play with various design styles. This is a modern family home where talents of the musical variety have reverberated off the walls and into the aura of this house. An oak front door is where the journey begins, opening up into a minimal yet funky hallway space. It is like a mini Guggenheim museum, its spiral sculpture smoothly morphing its way upstairs, the hallway floor glistening in large format tiles, giving way to the soft sumptuous carpet that leads you upwards. As part of the gallery charm, here is an opportunity for showcasing art and photography. A spider chandelier, dripping in Edison bulbs, adds a contemporary touch here, as an example of the ways you can mix and match your home style choices. The staircase, which is worth several mentions, conceals a piano at its base, but this could easily be a mini study/office for inspired thinking.

Continuing the quirky and unconventional, yet inspired living format, two bedrooms exist on the ground floor off the hallway, one of which sits over the garage, which is at the sunken lower ground level. A full bathroom, complete with large walk in shower, sits downstairs for the occupants of these rooms. Stay with us, it's a super cool layout. Towards the back of the home, the owners have created a beautiful, minimal living space, with touches of a Mid-Century vibe in an open plan and crisp living/kitchen/dining set up. Parquet flooring off-set against the crisp white walls and contrasting colour pop furniture give this living space a bright spark of personality. The bay area opens out onto the raised patio outside, welcoming light in.

The kitchen is slick and modern. Barely a utensil out of place, making for a calm and collected cooking process no doubt. The waterfall island catches the eye with the induction hob and downdraft extractor set within. On the opposite side, a run of kitchen cabinets slickly line the wall, the splashback creating a seamless blend from work surface to wall mount. Here, the high shine hallway flooring is continued. Looking back into the living space, the chef Du Jour can enjoy the hustle of family life while cooking up a storm, as well as the beauty of ones own garden space. A connective dining room with oak beam and vaulted ceiling, is perfect for family breakfasts and dining party evenings, with the doors opening out onto the patio. This entire living space is very connected to the outside, and yet sits in a bold contrast to the natural living with its sharp lines and pristine appearance.

Upstairs, the bedrooms that reside are impressive in size. Simply designed for maximum impact, there is are soft wool berber carpets underfoot, with the main bedroom boasts a changing room and opens out with a Juliette balcony. There's even a big tub to soak away in after a long day. Both bedrooms have the privacy of en-suites, the second with Carrara marble effect tiles.

Out onto the patio, you'll find spaces and nooks for relaxed glasses of wine in the eve or more communal family seating opportunities. Beyond the patio space, which is slightly raised from the lawn, an expanse of green, edged with borders but overall, laid our simply for ease of maintenance. Ridgeway Crescent is a well-executed, modernist home with attention to the impact of simplicity, allowing your personal style, works of art and treasured possessions to take pride of place.
