Nestled in the peace of a cul-de-sac, this single level residence promises space and privacy for first time buyers, downsizers or upsizers seeking a change from apartment living. The open plan living areas are set well away from the bedrooms and harness the natural light through glass sliding doors at both sides. A covered entertaining area with drop-down blinds amplifies the layout and extends the living options, while a meals area opens off the well-appointed kitchen which boasts stainless steel appliances and a brand new electric cooktop.

Parents will appreciate the large main bedroom offering an updated ensuite with heat lamps. Direct alfresco access through a sliding door from the main bedroom highlights the green yard and captures the breeze. A triple built-in wardrobe with adjustable shelving offers endless storage and hanging space. New carpets come with all bedrooms and full-height windows in the remaining two bedrooms draw the eye to the backyard. A built-in wardrobe is fitted in the second bedroom.

A large separate laundry features cupboard and bench space for folding washing. It offers external access and internal two-way access connecting the kitchen with the updated main bathroom complete with a new shower screen, resurfaced bath, vanity and new cabinet with concealed storage.

A freestanding multi-purpose structure in the yard which is fully enclosed and insulated and comes complete with three-phase power and lighting, offering brilliant potential as a teen retreat, rumpus, gym, artist studio or home office. With roller entry doors at the front and rear, this is a versatile space that's a dream addition for growing families or tradies needing more secure space for their equipment.

Entertain, work or tinker in a choice of alfresco spaces. The paved entertaining area and fully enclosed yard are a safe space for kids and pets to play. A dedicated aquaponics shed with fishponds and plants creates perfect symbiosis to grow your own veggies organically. Built-in shelving in the workshop at the rear of the double carport make a roomy man cave or place to store tools, and if you need even more storage, there is a large shipping container which can be included in the sale or removed at your request.

The Charnwood shops are literally through your back gate offering shopping and restaurants just moments away for the ultimate convenience. Schools, playing fields and parks are close by, promising a comfortable lifestyle with everything you need on your doorstep.
