THIS home ticks plenty of boxes – from its Hargest-zoned location to the double-sized bedrooms and expansive living areas to the fully fenced section and internally accessed double garage with man cave and separate large rumpus/teenage retreat, there is plenty on offer here.
The living areas, bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen are on the top floor of this split-level home, overlooking the surrounding neighbourhood and private north-facing yard.
The kitchen/dining and lounge areas are open-plan, with nearby access to the separate formal lounge through internal sliding doors.
The kitchen is spacious and has plenty of cupboards, drawers and bench space, including a large breakfast bar. It has a pantry and modern stainless steel appliances, including a smooth cooktop oven, rangehood, two wall ovens and separate dish drawers, either side of the sink.
The open-plan dining and living areas are spacious. A free-standing Yunca wood burner heats this room and there is modern insulation throughout the home, as well as some retro-fit double-glazing. The formal lounge area has exposed ceiling beams and a brick open fire surround feature wall.
On the north-facing side of the home, there are sliding doors from each of the rooms to the fully-covered veranda. These include the master bedroom, a second bedroom and both living areas. Off this veranda is a concrete courtyard – with space for entertaining and a barbecue and pizza oven. The yard is very private and includes a large back section with a wood and garden shed. It also has access to Myers Reserve.
Back inside and up the hallway is where the family bathroom and bedrooms are found. In the bathroom there is a separate bath, glass-enclosed shower, vanity unit, wall-mounted mirror and a heated towel rail. The toilet is in a separate room.
Three of the four bedrooms are doubles and include large wardrobing. The fourth single-sized bedroom has built-in wardrobing and could be used as an office.
As well as a double garage, there is a large workshop/tinker room, laundry and a second toilet. There is also a large rumpus/teenage retreat, which could easily be converted to suit many requirements.
