On re­flec­tion, a great spot

There’s more than one room with a view in this well lo­cated Ten­nyson property, writes Tom Dougherty.

ATWO-STOREY home at Ten­nyson is in a glo­ri­ous spot and makes the most of the view of West Lakes, ven­dor Gerry An­cone says. ‘‘It is a beau­ti­ful place, it is ab­so­lutely glo­ri­ous,’’ he says.

‘‘To high­light the as­pect, we saw a dis­play home that had a mir­ror at the end of the din­ing room, so we did that and you get the re­flec­tion of the lake in­side the house.’’

The property has three bed­rooms, with the mas­ter on the top floor.

It spans al­most the en­tire width of the house and has a walk-in robe, an en­suite with a bath and a shower and a slid­ing glass door out to a bal­cony with wa­ter views.

Also on the top floor is a study that also has a door out to the bal­cony.

The other two bed­rooms are on the ground floor and they both have built-in robes, and one has an en­suite with a shower. Most of the lower level is taken up by an open-plan kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing room, with glass along one wall look­ing out to the wa­ter.

The kitchen has a break­fast bar, a but­lers pantry and a dish­washer.

‘‘The kitchen is what you would call enor­mous, the bench is 1.1m wide and 4m long,’’ he says.

‘‘My wife loves cook­ing and we find that we so­cialise at the bench.’’

A slid­ing glass door in the liv­ing room opens out to a paved ve­randa.

There is also a curved win­dow in the kitchen that looks out on to a paved per­gola, which has ceil­ing fans and is ideal for out­door en­ter­tain­ing.

Also on the ground floor is a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess.

The home also has a dou­ble garage with a roller door.

‘‘I think it would suit some­one like us, re­tirees; three bed­rooms is plenty, and there is a big of­fice, a big kitchen and a big out­door area,’’ Mr An­cone says.
