Gar­den ad­dress will grow on you

Chance to pur­chase great as­set for the fam­ily. By NATALIE HORDOV

and wel­com­ing, this two-storey home pro­vides a com­fort­able yet con­tem­po­rary lifestyle.

The out­door area has been re­fur­bished, cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful space for en­ter­tain­ing or just re­lax­ing by the pool, and there are newly es­tab­lished wa­ter-wise gar­dens at the front and back of the home.

“We planted a Mediter­ranean-style wa­ter­wise gar­den with both in­dige­nous plants and suc­cu­lents, which is easy to main­tain and very pretty,” the own­ers said.

“We also cre­ated a veg­etable gar­den in round cor­tex struc­tures, which has pro­vided us with end­less herbs and ve­g­ies.”

The in­side of the home is just as at­trac­tive and func­tional as the ex­te­rior.

The layout of­fers great sep­a­ra­tion, with the chil­dren’s bed­rooms at the front of the home, along with an ac­tiv­ity area that opens to a pri­vate court­yard and an el­e­gant bath­room with tex­tured stone fea­ture wall.

The open-plan liv­ing ar­eas are at the back of the home. Soar­ing ceil­ings add to the feel­ing of space and ex­panses of glass let in plenty of nat­u­ral light.

Pol­ished con­crete floor­ing in the kitchen/din­ing area pro­vides a stun­ning vis­ual con­trast to warm-toned Tasmanian oak floor­boards in the liv­ing room.

The kitchen has Co­rian bench­tops, a break­fast bar, tim­ber cab­i­netry, Miele ap­pli­ances and a walk-in panty.

The large lounge/liv­ing room con­nects with the vine-cov­ered out­door deck.

“The room is light, airy and peace­ful and feels like we are in a re­sort,” the own­ers said.

The first floor is the par­ents’ do­main with mas­ter bed­room, his-and-hers walk-in robes, en­suite and large sit­ting area with kitch­enette. There are lovely leafy views over Swan­bourne and Lake Clare­mont and you can even watch the Royal Show fire­works from the bal­cony.

The own­ers have lived in four houses in Swan­bourne and love the com­mu­nity.

The home is on a 693sq m block close to Scotch Col­lege and within walk­ing dis­tance of the train sta­tion and Swan­bourne-vil­lage.

“Be­ing close to a lot of pub­lic amenity has been a won­der­ful as­set,” the own­ers said.

“And the cor­ner block was im­por­tant to us as it has end­less park­ing for friends and fam­ily.”

They are down­siz­ing and mov­ing on to an­other project and said it was a great op­por­tu­nity for an­other big fam­ily to move in and en­joy what the house and com­mu­nity have to of­fer.
