park plus for young family
AN active family will find this home suits their needs with Linear Park on its doorstep. Agent Chris Gaetjens says he can imagine a young family will be able to fully utilise the park.
‘‘Young kids can get out on Linear Park and ride their bikes; families can enjoy a relaxing walk,’’ he says.
Above the underground garage and overlooking the park is a large balcony.
This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun while keeping an eye on the children playing.
The balcony is easily accessed through the family room.
Front and back yards carry on the serene surroundings, featuring well-established and low-maintenance garden beds.
A pergola covered with wisteria provides natural shade over the paved outdoor entertaining area.
No renovations have been undertaken in recent years but the property has been maintained to a high standard so new owners need not rush into renovations and can easily add their personality.
The living area is open-plan, a nice surprise in a home of this period, and features a goodsized family and lounge room.
‘‘The home is quite spacious, with a flexible floor plan which could grow with the family,’’ Mr Gaetjens says.
Each of the three bedrooms is fitted with built-in wardrobes and two have direct access to the delightful backyard.
A large detached room could be used as a fourth bedroom if required.
This room could also be used as a living room retreat for young adults wanting some independence, a home office for those who spend time working after hours or even a music studio.
Mr Gaetjens describes the property’s location as ‘‘ almost like the country’’ because of its tranquil location, set in a in a quiet culde-sac.
But because it is set in the heart of the suburbs, it is just a 15-minute trip to the city.
Paradise Interchange is a short walk away, allowing the new owners to leave the car and be environmentally friendly.
