MOD­ERN, open-plan liv­ing and nat­u­ral light flood­ing in north­fac­ing win­dows at­tracted ven­dor Sue An­der­son to a St Ge­orges home 10 years ago. ‘‘I liked the spa­cious, flow-through feel­ing of the house, and all the north-fac­ing dou­ble doors,’’ she says.

‘‘It has a north-fac­ing back gar­den as well, and a beau­ti­ful down­stairs mas­ter bed­room with win­dows to the east and the north.’’

The prop­erty has three bed­rooms, with the mas­ter at the back. It has a built-in robe and an en­suite with a shower and a dou­ble van­ity.

The other two bed­rooms are on the top floor and one fea­tures a built-in robe and french doors open­ing to a bal­cony.

They are ser­viced by a bath­room, which has a shower. Also on the top floor is a liv­ing area. ‘‘That’s a big liv­ing room up there, it is per­fect if you have to have teenagers in the house,’’ she says.

At the front of the home down­stairs there is a lounge­room, which has a fire­place and french doors open­ing to a paved area at the side.

In the mid­dle of the prop­erty is an open­plan kitchen, fam­ily and liv­ing area with pol­ished tim­ber floors. The kitchen fea­tures an is­land bench with a break­fast bar, white cup­boards, stone benches, dish­washer and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances.

‘‘The kitchen is great, it has a huge bench that is very wide, and per­fect when you have peo­ple for din­ner be­cause you are right there,’’ Ms An­der­son says.

One set of french doors in the liv­ing room open to the side court­yard, and an­other set opens out to a paved area at the back, which looks over a lawn and a low-main­te­nance gar­den.

There is also a down­stairs pow­der room, and a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess.

At the front of the home is a garage which has an au­to­matic door and in­ter­nal ac­cess.

‘‘It is very quiet, with the mas­ter at the back you do not hear a sound, ever,’’ she says.

‘‘It’s a fan­tas­tic place, the neigh­bours are won­der­ful, it’s an in­cred­i­bly friendly place.’’
