With so many conveniences so close by it would be difficult to imagine a more desirable location.

On entry, the main living room features restored original hardwood floors and banks of casement windows that welcome the garden indoors.

A private hall off this living space, provides access to the 2 bedrooms, each with robes and quality plantation privacy shutters. These bedrooms are serviced by a large modern bathroom showcasing a stunning freestanding Kohler bath.

The crisp white timber kitchen is positioned in the centre of the home and features stainless steel European appliances, stone bench-tops, a convenient breakfast bar and a cute kitchen nook, perfect for home office duties.

The kitchen flows to a versatile open plan living – dining space that could also serve as a media zone, study area or quiet sitting room.

This light-filled room opens through 3 sets of pretty French doors onto an expansive L shaped deck that offers stunning elevated green views of the suburb and beyond.

Access to the terraced, rear garden is via a timber staircase from the deck. Featuring a private hedge, more white flower plantings, a fountain, herb garden and a lush lawn, there is also room for 2 car parking down the side of the home.
