Pool, po­si­tion and pri­vacy

There’s room to run amok in this fam­ily home,

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - First Open -

SPLIT level homes pro­vide fam­i­lies with added pri­vacy, al­low­ing par­ents and chil­dren their own space. Bruce Green, owner of a two­s­torey house on Yal­para Ave, Rostrevor, says hav­ing two lev­els gave him and wife Rachele ‘‘peace and quiet’’.

‘‘We have a for­mal area up­stairs and a ca­sual, fam­ily area down­stairs,’’ Mr Green says. ‘‘This home is per­fect for young fam­i­lies, be­cause par­ents can be on one level and the other gives the kids some­where to go where they can run amok.’’

The Greens have called this prop­erty home for 24 years but say it is now time to move on, as they look to their re­tire­ment years.

‘‘Now that there’s just the three of us liv­ing there, it’s time to re­duce the size of our house and we thought mov­ing into some­thing with just one level was sen­si­ble as we get older,’’ Mr Green says.

The house has up to four bed­rooms plus there are two bath­rooms and two liv­ing ar­eas.

Out­doors, there is a swim­ming pool and spa pro­tected from the el­e­ments with shade sails. The house has been ren­o­vated at var­i­ous times, so it now has an up­dated kitchen and bath­room, plas­ter cov­er­ing the brick walls and open-plan liv­ing ar­eas.
