ATHREE-STOREY home in Glenelg North’s pres­ti­gious Cygnet Court of­fers an en­vi­ous life­style and un­sur­passed en­ter­tain­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties says ven­dor Craig. Craig and his wife Carol bought the home in 2008 and said the prop­erty’s lo­ca­tion and views were hard to beat.

‘‘The views and life­style were a big part of it — we loved that we could walk straight down to the beach with the dogs and also had quick ac­cess to Jetty Rd and all of the restau­rants at the Hold­fast Shores precinct,’’ Craig says.

‘‘We’re all pretty ac­tive so we’re close to parks, ten­nis courts and ride our bikes all the time and the ma­rina has been very handy be­cause we of­ten take the boat out and can just walk back with the Esky.’’

The home has re­cently been ren­o­vated through­out and Craig says the up­grades cost al­most $500,000.

‘‘The kitchen was a cou­ple hun­dred thou­sand and be­cause we thought we were go­ing to be here for a long time we didn’t hold back on the ren­o­va­tions, but life changes and it’s a bit sad that we have to leave but there are stages in life and we’ll ex­cit­edly move on to the next one,’’ he said.

In­cluded in the ren­o­va­tions were an up­grade to the pool to in­clude a wa­ter fea­ture and gas heat­ing; new lawn and tim­ber­work, ad­justed ceil­ing heights, up­graded kitchen ap­pli­ances, and bed­rooms were re­ar­ranged to in­cor­po­rate a glass-door cel­lar.

‘‘The ta­ble in the kitchen cost about $20,000 and that comes with the house now be­cause it’s part of the whole kitchen.’’ The home has five bed­rooms, two with walk-in robes and the other three have built-in robes.

There are four bath­rooms, a bil­liard room, four bal­conies, two ver­go­las and cov­ered park­ing for three cars.

Craig says the home is the ul­ti­mate en­ter­tainer, of­fer­ing nu­mer­ous en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces and giv­ing fam­i­lies room to move. ‘‘There’s plenty of space through­out and the el­e­va­tor gives the home a great life­style feel,’’ he says.
