The perfect package
A homette offers a spacious feel in a compact design, writes Thomas Conlin. Recent sales
WHEN it comes to location, a homette in Kensington ticks all the boxes. Close to parks, schools, shops, restaurants and public transport, the three-bedroom property would suit young couples buying their first home or those looking for something smaller.
‘‘Even a couple with one child or single parent with a child going to Marryatville High . . It’s really convenient for the parade and the buses into town and the local shops,’’ the vendor says.
The quiet, secure location is another selling point for potential buyers, with the home set off the street in a group of seven.
Large north-facing windows allow the sun into the living and dining areas, offering a light and airy feel which is carried throughout the home by bamboo flooring.
‘‘The sun comes in and you can look out on the garden. It allows lots of light in,’’ the vendor says.
A loft ceiling in the living area adds to the sense of space in the compact property.
Surrounding parks offer an opportunity for picnicking nearby and the lush private courtyard garden gives an outdoor dining option.
‘‘There’s a plethora of parks in the area,’’ the vendor says.
‘‘There’s Tusmore Park, which is a great place for a picnic, and Borthwick Park in the next street is lovely for relaxing as well.’’
The home’s three bedrooms have built-in storage, with the master bedroom also featuring an ensuite bathroom.
The property’s other features include ducted air conditioning and a lock-up carport.
