Cover for family fun
VENDOR Pam White has transformed a large 1920s bungalow into a haven for entertainment and family life. The backyard of the five-bedroom home at Millswood boasts a pool and spa, almost entirely under cover.
‘‘I’ve put everything under cover where I could,’’ Ms White says.
‘‘The carport is under cover, which carries on through to the spa, then a veranda to the pool and the solar-heated pool is under cover.
‘‘I didn’t want my kids and their friends to be out there in the middle of the day getting burned so I put a cover on it.’’
When the vendors bought the property in 1992, they knew the three-bedroom home with garaging for five cars would be perfect for their family to grow into.
‘‘We were thinking ahead of time so we wanted room for lots of cars, not only for the kids’ cars but for their partners’ or friends’ cars,’’ one of the vendors says.
Inside, the home has seven main rooms with a formal lounge, formal dining, large rear sunroom and an eat-in kitchen with timber finish.
The character bungalow has traditional ornate feature fireplaces, ceilings and timberwork.
Address: 206 Lonsdale Tce. Type: Three-bedroom character bungalow with pool and spa. Agent: Century 21 Central, ph 8373 1333, Adam Teague 0413 022 993.
Open: 1.30pm to 2.15pm today tomorrow.
Price: $790,000 to $840,000.
Ms White says the house is tailor-made for a family.
‘‘I love my house but as my husband gets older we have to downsize,’’ she says.
‘‘The home would suit anyone with younger children to grow into it or teenage children.
‘‘I’ve designed the house around kids and entertaining.’’
