ATUDOR-STYLE home was in a great lo­ca­tion for ven­dor Brian Turner, who then up­graded al­most ev­ery­thing in the property over the next few years. ‘‘We liked the Tu­dor, as well as the lo­ca­tion, it’s a quiet lit­tle neigh­bour­hood,’’ he says. ‘‘We put in the new laun­dry, kitchen, a lot of the rooms have been up­graded and we put in the pool and ev­ery­thing in the gar­den.’’

The property has four bed­rooms, with the mas­ter fea­tur­ing a walk-in robe and an en­suite with a dou­ble van­ity and a shower. ‘‘It is a re­ally big area, it’s a lovely space,’’ he says. ‘‘They are all good-sized rooms.’’ The three other bed­rooms all have built-in robes, and one has a re­treat at­tached.

The bed­rooms are ser­viced by a bath­room, which has a spa bath and a shower.

At the front of the home is a lounge­room, that fea­tures a fire­place and a win­dow which over­looks the front yard.

At one end of the home is a kitchen that over­looks a for­mal din­ing room and both ar­eas have pol­ished tim­ber floors.

The kitchen fea­tures white cup­boards, a dou­ble oven, stone benches and Miele ap­pli­ances.

At the side of the property is a paved en­ter­tain­ing area that over­looks a glass-sur­rounded in­ground pool.

There is also a vegie gar­den and a shed in the back­yard.

There is also a laun­dry with a third toi­let, and a lad­der leads up to a teenager’s re­treat in the roof space.

‘‘There are end­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for what you can do up­stairs,’’ he says.

‘‘You could build four ex­tra bed­rooms up there, there are such pro­vi­sions to ex­tend.’’

He says the lo­ca­tion and fa­cil­i­ties makes it an ideal fam­ily home.

‘‘It is a fam­ily house, we have the dog, the vegie patch, the kids can ride their bikes around the streets, it is a nice com­mu­nity area,’’ Mr Turner says.
