Among the leafy thoroughfares and water features of Lake Gardens is this spotless, neat as a pin, double storey home; perfect for the modern family.

A neutral palette sets the tone throughout and will accommodate any style. Plush carpet adds warmth in all the sleeping and lounging areas while smart tiles are practical in wet and eating zones. Quality curtains and pelmets, textured feature walls and bulkheads also feature.

A staircase with a black and white, timber and wrought iron banister takes you to the sleeping quarters. Massive, the rumpus room at the top of these stairs makes the ideal retreat for kids.

Mimicking the floor plan below with its large box bay window overlooking the neighbourhood, is the magnificent master suite. The view, space and northern sun make this room palatial. This is exemplified in the en suite with large corner spa tiled in white and double wash basins.

Another three bedrooms have access to the central bathroom, unique with two basins and mirrors on opposite walls.

Clever design on the ground floor makes for an ideal lifestyle. Front rooms include an open office space, formal lounge and elegant dining room. Out back the open plan kitchen dining and main living space overlook the green yard.

Informal dining in the box bay window area is a delight while the well-appointed kitchen has a high brekkie bench, and stainless steel appliances. Close by a paved pergola can be used all year round thanks to roll down blinds and Perspex roof. A neat backyard has a shed, cubby house, and access to the two car garage.
