With a view to thrill
Relaxation comes easy with a modern extension, writes Ben Hyde.
AGLASS-ENCASED extension at the rear of a Myrtle Bank property has been enjoyed often by the owner of six years. ‘‘That back room has a stunning outlook,’’ the vendor says.
‘‘I haven’t had any blinds or curtains put in there but I had it double-glazed because I didn’t want to take away from the outlook.’’
The room is part of a modern open-plan extension incorporating the kitchen, dining and family area.
The house features four bedrooms, including the master with an ensuite and built-in robe.
Bedrooms two and three have built-in robes and bedroom four has an adjoining study.
There is an additional living room at the front of the house.
‘‘I love the western red cedar door and window frames and the polished wooden floorboards throughout,’’ the vendor says.
‘‘The lounge room at the front is really cosy and is a great room, too.’’

The property also features a detached one-bedroom unit.
‘‘It’s a great retreat from the main house,’’ the vendor says. ‘‘My son lives out there and he can come and go as he pleases and play his music.’’
