Cover for fam­ily fun

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Inspection Navigator - MILLSWOOD

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.

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.’’
