A bungalow is fit for a family, writes Ben Hyde.
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.
