As you enter the home, it just gets better.    A large entrance hallway, privacy sliding doors to the spacious lounge room, and  a lovely dining room with capacity for 8 guests for dining and socialising.   Entering the well presented kitchen you can notice improvements/updates, including timber floor treatments, modern electric benchtop cook top. range hood and Fisher and Paykel dishwasher.   Additionally the family room has a full length display cabinet installed, which will remain with the home.

Continuing the viewing, you will note that all bedrooms are generous in size, particularly the master bedroom, which has 2 built in robes and a built in desk drawer, and an updated ensuite.   Additionally, two of the bedrooms have built in robes, and the fouth bedroom has space for a free standing robe, as required.

 Further updates to the home include the main bathroom, amenities and laundry.  There are also a number of disability assist features throughout the home. 

At the rear of the home, an elevated tiled terrace has been constructed with a support rail to left side.   There are also steps down to the rear yard and side steps down to the rear of the garage.

The rear year is kept in immaculate condition, and has a number of lovely features, including free standing and spacious Cabana & BBQ room (originally planned as metal carport/shed), with gas BBQ, gas bottle and a fireplace with large rangehood.

The home has great potential for serious consideration for a Secondary Dwelling,  (with required approval) , to be constructed and installed in the rear yard by the new owners.    A perfect fit would be a 2 bedroom 70 m2 self contained secondary dwelling.  The block size is 1025 m2, and is ideal if you need extra living space for extended family/grand parents, who want to be close to family, but retain their independent lifestyle.  Pls discuss with Bob if this potential feature appeals to you.
