YEARS OF RENOVATION PAY OFF
GOING under the hammer this weekend is this beautifully presented family home that benefits from a luxury fit-out, a tranquil cul-de-sac location in Flemington Chase estate and a versatile floor plan.
Owners Phil and Carol Simpson bought the original dwelling nine years ago, constantly renovating it along the way.
“It was an ongoing project for us; we converted the old carport into the lounge, added on the double garage, redid the gardens and landscaping and totally redid all the kitchens and bathrooms,” Mr Simpson said.
“We just made the layout a little bit easier for us.”
Modest from the street front of the 552sq m block, the residence quickly reveals ultra-contemporary interiors anchored by chic timber flooring.
At the front of the home is a cavernous lounge with a welcoming fireplace and a TV alcove just above it – a wonderfully sleek space for family time and for entertaining guests.
Also in this front section of the house are the home office – large enough for two workstations – the master suite and a second bedroom with built-in robes.
In a northern wing at the back are two more minor bedrooms with built-in robes, the family bathroom, a separate toilet and the laundry with a linen closet.
Of course, this means the heart of the home is the thoughtfully designed open-plan main living space, which has vaulted ceilings and downlights to create a real sense of spaciousness.
Nestled into a corner of the room, looking across the dining and living rooms and all the way out to the alfresco area is the kitchen.
This tiled space is fully equipped with stainless steel cooking appliances, a dishwasher, tons of storage, a double-sized fridge recess surrounded by a wine rack, and a breakfast bar for casual meals.
Stepping out through double french doors, there is a brickpaved alfresco area with a gabled patio for entertaining in the warmer weather.
Here there is more than enough room to set up an outdoor lounge space, as well as a dining and barbecue area.
