Go­ing na­ture’s way

Recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties are a hop, skip and jump away, writes Ka­t­rina Stokes.

OUT­DOOR ac­tiv­i­ties, such as rid­ing, walk­ing and fish­ing, are at the doorstep of a three­bed­room colo­nial-style house in Ade­laide’s north­east.

The ven­dors of the solid-brick home say they were at­tracted to the prop­erty’s close prox­im­ity to Wynn Vale dam when they bought it two years ago.

‘‘We al­ways wanted to live by the lake . . . we’ve been go­ing there for years,’’ one of the ven­dors says. ‘‘It’s a very nice, tidy area. ‘‘The home has a lot of char­ac­ter . . . it’s got a homey feel to it. It’s a very prac­ti­cal home.’’

The ven­dor, who lives in the home with her hus­band and child, says the size of the prop­erty was an­other draw­card.

‘‘It’s a good size: it’s not too big and it’s not too small,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s a low-main­te­nance home.’’ Built on a cor­ner block in the early ’90s, the house fea­tures a for­mal sunken lounge with bar and sep­a­rate for­mal din­ing room.

‘‘The home has your for­mal parts, fam­ily rooms and good-sized bed­rooms,’’ the ven­dor says.

A large mas­ter bed­room at the front in­cludes built-in wardrobes and an en­suite.

There is an un­der­cover, paved area at the rear for en­ter­tain­ing.

While the home is a 30-minute drive to the city, the ven­dors say there is no need to ven­ture that far for shop­ping ev­ery day.

‘‘Sur­rey Downs is about a oneminute drive away across Golden Grove Rd and has a Food­land, bak­ery and post of­fice,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘Golden Grove shop­ping cen­tre is a cou­ple of min­utes drive away, too.’’
