Sprawling living areas are key to this Kingsley entertainer.
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.
