ASENSE of com­mu­nity was a key at­trac­tion when Shan­non and Christie Coad bought a new Maw­son Lakes house in 2003. Mrs Coad says af­ter of­ten vis­it­ing fam­ily in the sub­urb, they de­cided to buy there.

‘‘Our in-laws live just up the road and we of­ten came to visit the area and loved it,’’ she says.

‘‘Around 2003 we saw the house go­ing up with a ‘for sale’ sign so we went for it.’’

Mrs Coad says the lo­ca­tion has been a great fit for their grow­ing fam­ily.

‘‘It’s a real com­mu­nity place and you have every­thing you need here,’’ she says.

‘‘We’re in a re­ally good lo­ca­tion here with the lake and play­ground and park right near us.’’

The court­yard home boasts three bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the mas­ter with a walk-in robe and en­suite. An open-plan liv­ing area at the rear of the house in­cor­po­rates the kitchen, din­ing and lounge rooms and opens to a per­gola-cov­ered out­door en­ter­tain­ing area.

The prop­erty fea­tures a sec­ond court­yard to the side of the house.

‘‘It was re­ally nice buy­ing a brand new house,’’ Mrs Coad says. ‘‘It has some great ar­eas to en­ter­tain.’’ Mrs Coad says the prop­erty would be suited to a range of peo­ple, from first-home buy­ers to re­tirees. ‘‘It’s a good size house and every­thing there has been done,’’ she says.
