ABUN­GA­LOW at Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens has been the ideal fam­ily home for ven­dor Stephen for more than 30 years — he was at­tracted by the lo­ca­tion.

‘‘We had a young grow­ing fam­ily, it has al­ways been a great fam­ily home in a good area,’’ he says.

‘‘It’s got lots of trees, an­i­mals, and birdlife, it is very close to the Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens park, which is al­ways great for chil­dren.’’

The home has up to five bed­rooms, with the mas­ter on the ground floor and fea­tur­ing a walk-in robe and di­rect ac­cess to a bath­room with a bath and a shower.

There are three more bed­rooms with built-in robes, two of them are up­stairs and have ac­cess to a bal­cony.

‘‘When we first bought it the house had a granny flat sep­a­rate, we ended up join­ing them to­gether and also re-built the back of the house,’’ he says.

‘‘We ba­si­cally kept the house up­dated over the years.’’

At the front down­stairs is a sit­ting room, which has a din­ing room ad­ja­cent and a cel­lar un­der­neath.

There is also an of­fice at the front that over­looks the front yard.

‘‘It was a good house for en­ter­tain­ing,’’ he says.

The main hub of the home is an open­plan kitchen and liv­ing room, which has pol­ished tim­ber floors and bi-fold doors that open to a ve­randa across the back.

The kitchen has a but­lers pantry, a break­fast bar, white cup­boards and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

‘‘You have that space for things like sec­ond fridges, the kitchen is a good size,’’ Stephen says.

In the back­yard of the home is an in­ground pool, and a grass ten­nis court.

The property also has an additional liv­ing room, a laun­dry, and a sec­ond bath­room with a shower.
