Space in­vader

Sprawl­ing living ar­eas are key to this Kings­ley en­ter­tainer.

North Coast Weekender - - Residential -

AS the say­ing goes, never judge a book by its cover, es­pe­cially when it comes to this seem­ingly mod­est fam­ily res­i­dence in Kings­ley.

“When we first moved here in 2011, the house seemed so much big­ger on the in­side than from the out­side,” owner Phillip said.

Hid­den be­hind the unas­sum­ing fa­cade are five bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and ver­sa­tile living spa­ces, in­clud­ing an open-plan fam­ily/meals/kitchen area with wood-burn­ing fire­place at the back of the house.

“The ren­o­va­tion in 2013 in­cluded two ex­tra bed­rooms, dou­ble doors to the en­ter­tain­ment area and in­creas­ing the size of an ex­ist­ing room,” Phillip said.

“We re­ally love three ar­eas: the sunken en­ter­tain­ment area that is so large our pool ta­ble used to get lost, the sec­ond lounge with a cosy fire is a favourite spot for my wife, Natalie, and the per­gola area for the kids.”

There is also an ac­tiv­ity room with out­door ac­cess that links with the study, and a well-de­signed al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing zone with built-in gas bar­be­cue.

Bed­rooms are big, car­peted and have mul­ti­ple power points and ceil­ing fans, in­clud­ing the mas­ter with fully tiled en­suite.

Ex­tras in­clude key­less en­try, ducted evap­o­ra­tive air­con­di­tion­ing, at­tic stor­age, 1.5kW so­lar-power sys­tem with 3kW in­verter, bore retic­u­la­tion, and a gar­den shed with power.
