When designing the perfect family home, it is very important to set down what features you really want and more importantly what you really need taking into consideration how the family structure will grow over time. With these thoughts in mind, the floor plan of this spacious home has certainly addressed those criteria and offers longevity for today's family and their living requirements.

With its split-level design, the upper level has the open plan family, meals, and kitchen area with its abundance of natural light and access onto a covered entertaining area overlooking the back garden. The main bedroom with walk through robe and ensuite bathroom is adjacent to this area segregated from the other bedrooms.

At street level, the entrance hall is spacious, and the formal lounge offers a wall with floor to ceiling built in bookcases and again natural light. A guest bedroom with pull down bed and bathroom as well as internal access to the double garage is also found on this level.

On the lower level, you will find two bedrooms separated by an activity/rumpus room, a bathroom with separate toilet, a laundry with plenty of cupboard space and drying rack and under stairs storage with built in wine racks. Another outdoor entertaining area is accessed from the activity room which flows onto the easy care gardens.

Storage is at a premium with built in cupboards in the family room. main bedroom and laundry as well as the garage which has hooks to store your bicycles.
