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.
