Buyers who want to bring a personal touch to the residence will find that the interior soft cream walls and ceilings give plenty of scope to do that.
Rich carpeting in the bright, spacious lounge room, as well as some of the bedrooms, evoke a warm spirit and keep things cosy. A gas heater with a mantle, and charming pendant lights suspended above, are an inviting focal point in the lounge room.
The space connects seamlessly to a pleasant meals area and kitchen. Here, vintage finishes on the benchtops and a rounded edge to the breakfast peninsular suffuse the family zone with a sense of nostalgia, while cabinets provide abundant storage space.
Opposite the living room, there are three bedrooms one of which overlooks the front garden, while the others have views to the back of the property. All share access to a crisp and soothing family bathroom.
The backyard is a thriving, but neat space, with a potting shed that gardeners are certain to enjoy. There is a free-standing pergola with open and closing roof, the perfect spot for idyllic lunches in the garden with the family. The residence also has an outdoor toilet and independent young members of the family and guests will find a fourth sleeping space in a separate bungalow, appealing. It is attached to a private and casual rumpus area that also has a bar for entertainment.
Kingsville Kindergarten is just 700 metres away while an Early Learning Centre and Primary School are a short drive. A wealth of shops, eateries, public transport options and sports and leisure facilities, including bowling and hockey clubs, are also at close quarters.
