Flexible living on offer

LOVINGLY cared for by vendors John and Marijke Chenoweth, a Hallett Cove residence offers an individual floorplan for flexible living options. Despite being designed 15 years ago by the vendors, the home’s unique floorplan still offers advantages for modern living.
‘‘We absolutely love the internal layout of the house. It’s a bit out of the ordinary in that we have the lounge at the front and all of the bedrooms towards the back of the home,’’ Mr Chenoweth says.
‘‘We spend most of our time in the living spaces so we like having them grouped together at the front of the home.’’
The bedrooms at the back of the home also can be converted into a study, rumpus room, or even a home theatre, depending on your lifestyle.
‘‘This is the second house we built ourselves and our kids were all grown up when we moved here 15 years ago,’’ Mr Chenoweth says.
‘‘For us this was a downsize from the family home, so we decided to go for a courtyard-style because it’s easier to maintain.’’
The protected, vaulted pergola features a low-maintenance garden and a fish pond with a cascading waterfall.
Situated on a quiet street in the Karrara estate, the home is conveniently located, taking advantage of views across Hallett Cove to the sea beyond.
‘‘We’re at the northern end of Hallett Cove and it’s only 10 minutes (drive) to the Marion shopping centre and under 10 minutes to the new Hallett Cove shopping complex,’’ Mr Chenoweth says.
