Country views, lifestyle choices on city boundary


IF you can force yourself away from the panoramic view of the country, you will then discover this three-bedroom home in Hargest gives plenty of lifestyle options.

With an extensive, two-thirds wrap-around deck on the upper level, this home is ideal for entertaining, enjoying family barbecues, or simply relaxing and taking in the fantastic rural views.

A short stroll from James Hargest College senior campus, this spacious split-level family home is neat, tidy and well presented.

As well as having an elevated north living area, the ample lounge, dining area and modern kitchen have a great flow. The feature splashback in the kitchen is eye-catching, and also included is a cook top, oven, dishwasher, breakfast bar and the ever-popular appliance cupboard. The attractive, sizable tiles throughout the home, including in the kitchen, laundry, bathroom and at the front door, are all the same, which adds to the home’s ambiance.

The lounge can be accessed from the deck by a sliding door to the north or bi-fold doors to the east, as can the dining room with another set of bi-fold doors. The bi-fold doors are double glazed, as is the corner bedroom on the south-west lower level.

With so many floor to ceiling windows in the living areas, the rising sun floods in the mornings and the heat is retained throughout the day. As the day goes on, the sun creeps across the deck, ensuring all-day sun.

But if extra heat is needed, there are two heat pumps, one on the upper level and the other on the lower level, as well as a gas heater.

On the lower level are the three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has drapes as well as venetian blinds, which allows in plenty of light while maintaining privacy. The bathroom is across the hall with a bath and vanity. A separate toilet is next door, and a separate shower is close by. The water is heated by gas.

As well as a spacious two-car garage, workshop and carport, there is plenty of off-street parking for the caravan and/or boat. There is even room in the garage to store a motorcycle.

As well as a mini tunnel house and garden shed, the compact, low maintenance back yard also has a vegetable garden, and is fully fenced.  For more information click here.
