This 60s era cream brick home has not been lived in since a total renovation blitz transformed it into a modern low maintenance masterpiece. Tastefully done in the latest neutrals, soft grey, cream, white and black accents, this is a palette you can add any furnishings to.

The main entrance and porch is to the side of the house under a two car length carport. New carpet throughout, freshly painted walls, timber look flooring and modern light fittings leaves nothing to do.

Much effort has been put into the centerpiece kitchen with shiny vinyl wrap cabinetry, stone bench tops, textured tiled splash back and stainless steel appliances.

Traditional, the floor plan has the main living space at the front of the home, a generous room with fireplace. Glass sliding doors open to an alfresco deck in the pretty, private front yard with a magnificent persimmon tree at the centre. North facing, this area captures the sunshine.

Frosted glass siding doors lead to the bedrooms. Adding drama in the master is a recessed wall, great for framing a bedhead. A walk-in robe has lots of shelving and dress space. Simple in design, the en suite makes great use of space while earthy tiles add character.

Another two bedrooms have built-in robes while a large front room could make a fourth bedroom, office or living room.

The second bathroom with a bath has aesthetics similar to the en suite. A refurbished laundry rounds out this home.

In the compact backyard is a storage shed with workshop as well as a clothesline. The lake, shops and some great colleges are all a short walk away.
