AHYDE Park villa had charm aplenty for ven­dor Lor­raine Lee when she first saw it in 2007 and when she up­dated it she in­cluded an ex­ten­sion at the back.

‘‘I loved the old-world charm of the home and the beau­ti­ful am­bi­ence of the area as well,’’ she says.

The home has up to four bed­rooms, with the mas­ter bed­room lo­cated in the mid­dle.

It fea­tures two built-in cup­boards, a walk-in robe, and an en­suite with a bath and a shower.

‘‘It’s quite a big room and it has got quite a lot of robes, and a very large en­suite; it of­fers quite a bit for peo­ple,’’ she says.

‘‘The rest of the rooms are big... I’m hop­ing that another fam­ily would like to live there.’’

Two of the other bed­rooms have built-in robes and ceil­ing fans, and one also has an en­suite with a shower.

At the front of the home is a lounge­room with a fire­place, which could be used as a bed­room if re­quired.

The kitchen is to­wards the back of the home and it has white cup­boards, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and a dish­washer.

‘‘It’s a beau­ti­ful, good-size kitchen to get around, there’s lots of stor­age as well,’’ she says.

‘‘And you get a nice out­look to a court­yard with trees and plants, it’s quite pretty.’’

Ad­ja­cent to the kitchen is an open-plan fam­ily and din­ing room, with win­dows along one side that look out to the back­yard.

A slid­ing door in the fam­ily room opens out to a cov­ered veranda at the back of the home, which looks on to a lawn area.

‘‘There are up­lights I have put on the trees, so at night it gives off a beau­ti­ful ef­fect like a re­sort,’’ she says.

There is also a study at the back, a laun­dry at­tached to the side, and a third bath­room with a shower and a toi­let. The home also has a car­port at the back with side-street ac­cess.
