Window on a new life
It is a light-filled experience, writes Tom Dougherty.
AN architecturallydesigned home was built in 1989 and features extensive use of windows, and a plunge pool. In the middle of the home is an open-plan kitchen, meals and living area with a gas fire.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and white cupboards.
A sliding glass door in the living area opens out to a covered, paved entertaining area.
At the front of the home is a combined dining and living room, which has windows on two sides and a combustion heater. There are three bedrooms, with the master also at the front of the home.
It features a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a shower.
The other bedrooms are at the back, and they have built-in robes.
The bathroom is near the other two bedrooms and it has a shower and a spa bath.
Also at the back of the home is a laundry with external access.
Accessible through a door in the kitchen is a plunge pool, which is covered and is surrounded by an entertaining area. There is also a storeroom and a bathroom with a shower accessible from the pool area. The home has been recently updated, with new carpet throughout and LED light fittings.
Amenities in the area include the Coromandel Train Station, Blackwood Forest Reserve, Frank Smith Park and Hawthorndene Primary School.
