APRI­VATE bun­ga­low in a nice sub­urb at­tracted Joyce Cor­rell and her hus­band to Clarence Park 22 years ago.

The cou­ple found the home by ac­ci­dent.

Ms Cor­rell says it of­fered them more than the other units they were look­ing at at the time.

‘‘My daugh­ter lives at Millswood and we hap­pened to see the sign out in front of the home, went in and had a look around, drove around to in­spect the neigh­bour­hood and de­cided it was per­fect for us and we bought it,’’ Ms Cor­rell says.

‘‘We liked the big­ger rooms and the high ceil­ings that we weren’t see­ing in the units we’d been look­ing at and it was so close to public trans­port, which is now a Go Zone down one end on Good­wood Rd and one at the other end on East Ave which is also a Go Zone.’’

The home has two bed­rooms and the up­dated kitchen fea­tures a gas cook­top, elec­tric oven and white ap­pli­ances.

The main be­d­room has an en­suite and dress­ing room.

The main rooms have jar­rah floor­boards and the car­peted lounge room has a fire­place.

Ms Cor­rell says the prop­erty is close to all ma­jor ser­vices and public trans­port is nearby.

‘‘We’ve also got the rail­way sta­tion just down the road . . . my hus­band used to go to uni on North Tce and it only took him seven min­utes on the train.’’
