This week’s House of the Week – 79C Racecourse Rd, Glengarry

SHARE

WITH a sun-drenched conservatory, easy-care grounds and freshly renovated dwellings, this Racecourse Rd unit is ideal for a retired couple or professionals.

Located between Ascot Park Racecourse and Ascot Park Hotel, there are no shortage of places to go out for a social event or dining experience.

This cosy two-bedroom home is behind two other units down an easy-access driveway off the road.

Although it is linked to other units, the residence still allows for privacy.

With a semi-rural outlook, residents can enjoy a view of animals grazing on the land next door.

Here you will also find a single-vehicle carport, with storage space and access to a separate washing-line area at the back entrance to the unit.

With an easy-care outdoor area, a terrace at the entrance to the home leads on to the sun-drenched conservatory.

While double-glazing is found in the rest of the house, this area is intentionally single-glazed to allow for as much heat gathering as possible.

Sit in the conservatory with a cup of tea and a book while basking in the sun, or head inside to make the most of the natural heat flow into the main areas of the home.

Aside from the conservatory, the rest of the home is double-glazed with a heat pump in the main living area.

An open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area make up this space, with near-new carpet, neutral colour tones, and tidy light and drape fittings throughout.

The modern kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, double sink, pantry, oven, microwave shelf, and six-slot wine rack.

Off the joint living and dining area is a hallway and the master bedroom, which is fitted with a large sliding-door double wardrobe with in-built shelving.

Back out on to the hallway is a utilities closet, as well as the second double bedroom, also with a sliding-door double wardrobe with in-built shelving.

At the end of the hallway is a separate toilet and a shared bathroom and laundry area.

With a dome-top shower, sophisticated laundry sink, and a linen cupboard installed with a hot water system, all the necessary amenities are located in this tidy space.
