The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Real Estate -

TRA­DI­TIONAL charm for a con­tem­po­rary life­style – this large fam­ily home has it all. Walk through the front of the home to find all the fea­tures ex­pected of a stun­ning early 1900s villa but upon reach­ing the rear dis­cover con­tem­po­rary open-plan liv­ing.

Agent Chris­tine Auld says this home has ev­ery­thing to­day’s buy­ers are looking for.

‘‘There is a large open-plan liv­ing and din­ing,’’ Ms Auld says.

‘‘There also is a for­mal lounge at the front to use as a par­ent’s es­cape, which is what peo­ple want th­ese day.’’

A fire­place is the fea­ture of the front lounge room, which re­ally does make it the per­fect place to re­lax af­ter a long day.

The rear ex­ten­sion in­cor­po­rates the liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen area.

Large pic­ture win­dows and two sets of french doors over­look the swim­ming pool in the back­yard.

The so­phis­ti­cated kitchen fea­tures gran­ite bench­tops, walk-in pantry and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

Each of the five bed­rooms is a good size to sup­port a grow­ing fam­ily.

‘‘Usu­ally the bed­rooms in homes that have four or five are small but this house has gen­er­ous dou­bles,’’ Ms Auld said.

The mas­ter bed­room in­cludes an en suite, walk-in wardrobe and french doors that open up to a se­cluded court­yard. Two other bed­rooms are fit­ted with built-in wardrobes.

‘‘This is a lovely big fam­ily home with plenty for the kids,’’ Ms Auld says.

A huge swim­ming pool dom­i­nates the back­yard and is sur­rounded by paving, the per­fect place to re­lax while keep­ing a watch­ful eye.

The lush, easy-care front gar­den fea­tures es­tab­lished plants and a lawn area where the kids can safely play.

The home is in walk­ing dis­tance of pre­mium schools, Brown­hill Creek pic­nic grounds and the lo­cal wa­ter­ing hole, The Ed.
