This Broad­view home was ren­o­vated with some en­ter­tain­ing thought, writes Tom Dougherty.

Ahouse in the ‘‘hid­den gem’’ sub­urb of Broad­view was in orig­i­nal con­di­tion and ven­dor Michelle Houn­slow ren­o­vated it to create a peace­ful fam­ily home.

‘‘Ini­tially we liked the area, as well as the op­por­tu­nity to put our stamp on the place and make it a home,’’ she says.

‘‘It was in al­most orig­i­nal con­di­tion be­cause it had lots of door­ways and lit­tle rooms, so we vir­tu­ally gut­ted the place and started again.’’

The prop­erty has three car­peted be­d­rooms, which are all at one end of the home.

Two of them fea­ture built-in robes and the master looks on to the front yard and has a split-sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing unit.

At the front of the home is a lounge­room, which has a heater.

Along the far side of the home from the be­d­rooms is a com­bined kitchen and meals area.

The kitchen fea­tures a breakfast bar, a pantry, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, a 900mm-wide oven, and a dish­washer.

‘‘The kitchen is a great kitchen to work in, it has plenty of room and the breakfast bar is a nice spot to have a drink or a ca­sual meal,’’ Ms Houn­slow says.

Along the back of the home is a fam­ily and din­ing room, which has french doors that open out to the back­yard.

In the mid­dle of the home is a bath­room, which has a bath and a shower, and there is a laun­dry ad­ja­cent.

In the back­yard is a cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing area that looks on to a lawn area, which has a wa­ter fea­ture.

‘‘It is bril­liant for en­ter­tain­ing be­cause there is plenty of room in the back­yard,’’ she says.

‘‘You have a great area un­der­cover for en­ter­tain­ing and din­ing, it’s fan­tas­tic for small or large groups.

‘‘It would be good for a fam­ily be­cause there is so much room to move.’’
