Pool, position and privacy
There’s room to run amok in this family home,
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.
