ACHAR­AC­TER bun­ga­low at Joslin has proved to be a com­fort­able fam­ily haven for the own­ers of al­most 10 years. The tree-lined streets and lo­ca­tion first lured them to Joslin. ‘‘The mar­ket was good at the time and we liked that it was close to the city,’’ says one of the ven­dors.

‘‘We just loved the wide streets with the trees and the fact it was close to Joslin Re­serve. It’s just a beau­ti­ful area.’’

The prop­erty has three bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the mas­ter with an en­suite and walk-in wardrobe, a for­mal lounge with ad­join­ing study, for­mal din­ing and an open-plan kitchen, meals and fam­ily area.

‘‘We put an ex­ten­sion on the back, which fea­tures the kitchen and fam­ily area, laun­dry and third toi­let, and an en­suite,’’ the ven­dor says.

The ex­ten­sion has cre­ated am­ple space for all the fam­ily to en­joy.

‘‘The adults can sit in the for­mal rooms and the kids can have the fam­ily area or even be out­side,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘It’s a great fam­ily home and wher­ever you go into is com­fort­able. It’s a good size with a good-size yard and it’s an ideal lo­ca­tion near the park.’’

The kitchen fea­tures gran­ite benches, splash­backs and qual­ity ap­pli­ances.

A cov­ered out­door en­ter­tain­ing area is ac­cessed from the kitchen and fam­ily area. There also is a two-car car­port and gar­den shed.

The ven­dors say they will miss much about the prop­erty.

‘‘We’ll even miss things like the af­ter­noon sun, which streams into the study and bed­room at the front of the house,’’ they say. Ad­dress: 89 Fourth Ave. Type: Three-bed­room bun­ga­low.
