Lock it in, this Kil­syth home ticks boxes

Herald Sun - Property - - NEWS -

A DOU­BLE garage was a non­nego­tiable op­tion when Ni­c­hole and Scott Declercq were look­ing to buy their Kil­syth home.

But the couple also wanted to be close to work, schools and a park so they could pro­vide op­tions for their young fam­ily.

“It was very im­por­tant or us to find a place with a dou­ble lockup garage be­cause my hus­band is a tradie and he’s got very ex­pen­sive tools and we needed the se­cu­rity,” Ms Declercq said.

“When we were look­ing for a place, if it didn’t have a lockup garage then we didn’t waste our time look­ing at it.”

But Ms Declercq said they also con­sid­ered ameni­ties that would suit their chil­dren El­iza, 14, and Nate, 4.

“We were ac­tu­ally lucky with our house,” she said. “It was 15 min­utes from work for both of us, it was five min­utes from the pri­mary school with a really good name and it was two min­utes from a nice park.

“Hav­ing young chil­dren, all th­ese things were really im­por­tant to us.

“We’ve got schools, child­care, shops all within walk­ing dis­tance and be­ing 15 min­utes to work in the car means more time with the fam­ily.”


Ni­c­hole Declercq, with El­iza and Nate, and hus­band Scott bought in Kil­syth to be just 15 min­utes from work.
