ABEULAH RD prop­erty was so ideal for ven­dor Alex Spinelli he walked in and bought it on the spot just over twenty years ago. ‘‘I ac­tu­ally liked the look of the house, I saw it was com­ing up for auc­tion and I just walked in and bought it, it just felt re­ally good,’’ he says.

‘‘I just walked in and the price was right.’’

Built circa 1890, the char­ac­ter villa has three bed­rooms.

The mas­ter is at the front and it fea­tures a fire­place and an air­con­di­tion­ing unit.

‘‘All the bed­rooms have queen sized beds,’’ Mr Spinelli says.

In the mid­dle of the home is a lounge­room which has a fire­place and pol­ished tim­ber floors.

‘‘Over the years I had the place re-wired, re-plumbed, reroofed, in­su­la­tion put in and had all the floors sanded,’’ he says.

‘‘The back area with the kitchen and bath­room was all re­done when I bought it and it still looks great.’’

At the back of the home is an open-plan kitchen, fam­ily and meals area. The kitchen fea­tures a break­fast bar and stain­lesssteel ap­pli­ances.

‘‘It was de­signed for my­self and two chil­dren and it worked bril­liantly for me,’’ he says.

‘‘The kitchen faces on to the back court­yard area, which is un­der­cover, so a lot of the time I just cook out­side on the bar­be­cue when the weather was right.’’

Ac­ces­si­ble from the fam­ily room is a cov­ered per­gola area at the back. The bath­room is ad­ja­cent the kitchen, and it has a bath and a sep­a­rate shower.

The prop­erty also has a laun­dry and a car­port with an au­to­matic door.

‘‘It has plenty of room and is close to all the ameni­ties and you can walk to The Pa­rade,’’ he says.
