“The only way to get our daughter to sleep was to go for a drive,” Ms Gitsham says in this week’s magazine.

The designer kitchen and expansive living area make the most of the panoramic view – linking the home to an entertaining space the Gitsham’s spent a lot of time enjoying, with a showpiece water feature and direct access to the in-ground pool.

“You could just be a million miles away,” she said.
The house features a 13.5kw solar power system, polished concrete flooring in the living areas and a cosy fireplace.
The state-of-the-art water feature was designed to heat the pool in cooler months, and the gardens and lawns were set up to be virtually self-sufficient and make the most of the 60,000L tank water system.
“We just wanted mother nature to look after it for us,” Ms Gitsham said.
“We are so excited to let someone else move in and create their own memories and get to call this place home.”
