Con­tact: 1 WHEN the owner bought this home in 2013 she liked that it was a sin­gle storey and not part of an apart­ment block.

“It is hard to find a two-bed­room villa in the area that is set in gar­dens and has its own court­yard,” she said.

“This home is in a small com­plex of 10, set in well-main­tained, ma­ture gar­dens.

“The lo­ca­tion is quiet and very con­ve­nient to ev­ery­thing; the city, beach, hos­pi­tal, with a train sta­tion in walk­ing dis­tance.

“And I love the con­ve­nience of liv­ing 1km from work.”

The house was built in 1980 and the owner gave it a thor­ough ren­o­va­tion in 2014.

The tiled and car­peted floor­ing was re­placed with brush­box tim­ber floor­ing, the mis­sion brown frames on the doors and win­dows were re­placed and se­cu­rity screens were in­stalled on the win­dows.

The kitchen had pre­vi­ously been ren­o­vated, but was up­dated fur­ther with a dish­washer, mi­crowave space and broom cup­board added and the range­hood flued.

The home has an open-plan liv­ing/din­ing area with a slid­ing door lead­ing to the kitchen with Miele ap­pli­ances.

The lounge opens to a paved court­yard.

The owner likes sit­ting in the lounge where she can look out to the court­yard and also through the kitchen to the ma­ture gar­dens at the front of the home.

There are two bed­rooms, both with built-in robes and a com­bined bath­room/laun­dry with plenty of stor­age.

The home has been well-fin­ished with LED light­ing through­out, ducted re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, dou­ble-glazed win­dows, and heated towel rails and heat lights in the bath­room.

The owner has en­joyed liv­ing in the home and is mov­ing on re­luc­tantly, need­ing more space to ac­com­mo­date her daugh­ter be­tween over­seas post­ings for an NGO. The ex­pe­ri­ence of liv­ing in a strata home has also been pleas­ant.

“I have never lived in a strata be­fore and have been de­lighted with the ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said.

“The other res­i­dents are very easy to get on with and are re­spect­ful of pri­vacy.” ■
