Park setting in a quiet street
Being near parks and reserves is among the advantages, writes Lachlan Pryor.
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.
