This building may be new, but it has the aura of having been here for many past generations. Positioned on a botanical wonderland that covers approximately 903 square metres, the stunning home is split over two levels and oozes character and charm everywhere you look. 

With approximately 27 squares of easy living, the house has been constructed in a provincial style, yet has all the mod cons, such as double glazed windows, hydronic heating, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning and a 3kW solar system.

The ground floor boasts a stunning main bedroom with a bay front window, walk-in wardrobes and a tasteful en suite. The kitchen provides the home cook with ample storage thanks to the walk-in pantry, and there’s also Caesarstone benchtops, a dishwasher and gas/electric cooker.

The large open plan dining/ living area features herringbone parquetry timber flooring and flows into the beautiful light-filled conservatory.  A small office/study/nursery room and a separate laundry complete the rooms on the ground floor.

The elegant staircase leads to the upper level sitting room, reading area, an additional two bedrooms and family bathroom.

Outside, the property has a private rear courtyard, a spacious two car garage, and fully landscaped gardens that the entire family will enjoy spending time in.

The property is ideally located with a bus stop at the front door, and is a short walk to a café, Fed Uni, IBM and Tech Park. Inspections are strictly by appointment only.
