ATHREE-BED­ROOM home neigh­bour­ing Fin­don High School has taken ad­van­tage of space. The home, which is sur­rounded by parks and re­serves, was built by the ven­dor in 2001.

‘‘It’s next to the Fin­don High School oval, which I have been us­ing to walk the dogs on,’’ the ven­dor says. ‘‘There are plenty of parks in the area, with play­grounds on the back re­serve and a base­ball oval down the street.’’

The ven­dor says liv­ing near a school has not been a prob­lem.

‘‘It’s ac­tu­ally a quiet street. There is a lit­tle bit of traf­fic at pick-up time from the school but most peo­ple are not home from work yet so they wouldn’t no­tice it,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘We lived there for nine years and had no trou­ble liv­ing next to the school. The kids don’t come any­where near the bound­ary fence.’’

The mas­ter bed­room of the free­stand­ing court­yard home has a bay win­dow, large walk-in wardrobes and ac­cess to the family bath­room, which has a spa bath.

There is a sec­ond bath­room coming off the open­plan liv­ing area, which in­cludes a kitchen.

A sec­ond sep­a­rate liv­ing area looks out to a pri­vate side court­yard.

The home boasts about 30sq m of back­yard space with a per­gola for al­fresco din­ing.

The ven­dor says the home is lo­cated con­ve­niently be­tween the beach and the CBD.

‘‘We are just a five-minute drive to the beach and a 10-to-15-minute drive to the city,’’ the ven­dor says. ‘‘You’re half­way be­tween the city and the sea. It’s also re­ally close to shops and pub­lic trans­port. It’s also near to the lin­ear track, which runs along the River Tor­rens, and is great for cyclists.’’ The home is ten­anted. The ven­dors are selling be­cause of an em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­nity in­ter­state.
