BE­ING close to the city and air­port were among the draw­cards of a Lock­leys home when Peter and Karen Ward moved from Syd­ney 10 years ago. ‘‘We were look­ing for some­thing that was a good-sized fam­ily home be­cause we had three young chil­dren at the time,’’ Karen says.

‘‘The lo­ca­tion is fan­tas­tic and it’s close to the air­port and city and has easy ac­cess but at the same time it’s in a quiet lo­ca­tion on a lovely street.’’

The four-bed­room home has a re­cently up­graded kitchen with an is­land bench, for­mal lounge and large rum­pus room down­stairs.

The ground floor mas­ter bed­room has walk-in robes and an up­dated en­suite with a spa while up­stairs there are three bed­rooms, a three-way bath­room and a teenager’s re­treat.

‘‘It’s just a great home for fam­i­lies. One thing we’ve re­ally liked is that as our kids have gone through their teen years, there are so many liv­ing ar­eas that ev­ery­one can have their own space,’’ Ms Ward says.

‘‘We walk a lot and live near Lin­ear Park. It’s also close to shop­ping, with Har­bour Town. I feel like it’s close to every­thing.’’

There are three ex­its from the home to the spa­cious back­yard with its cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing area, easy-care gar­den and large gar­den shed.

The house has gas heat­ing, ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and an alarm sys­tem.
