    A sense of tranquillity in this light filled, open plan home, great entertaining & location, close to light rail!

    Situated in a peaceful street lined with claret ash, this fully renovated and extended home occupies an ideal position close to an open reserve with a playground.

    Deciduous trees in autumn hues, camellias and roses lightly screen the attractively landscaped garden and the stylish, rendered façade. The warmth of Karri timber decking is a welcoming feature, leading to the entry.

    Light pours into the stunning open plan living area, the highlight of the home. A masterful extension, designed by the architect-owner, has vastly increased living space. The inclusion of a raked ceiling to the extension opens the home up towards the North-east aspect, filling the living space with light and creating a strong connection to the garden. Feature pendant lighting and extensive double-glazed windows complete the effect.

    The fabulous contemporary kitchen hub features a stone island bench with breakfast bar, a Bosch cooktop and stainless steel oven, a glass rangehood, Smeg dishwasher, generous benchtops and an appliance cupboard.

    A continuous flow of living space onto outdoor entertaining is created by two sets of double-glazed sliding doors from the dining area and kitchen.

    Ducted heating and ducted evaporative cooling maintain comfort.

    Clever design has increased storage and space-saving throughout, such as the innovative system in the entry, a built-in study in the living area and a cavity sliding door to the new laundry.

    Light and airy bedrooms all offer a wall of built-in robes, while quality new carpet adds to the luxurious feel. Every room in the home has a private garden outlook, the sunny master bedroom overlooking a lovely Japanese maple.

    Innovative design maximises the functionality of the new bathroom with style, while a separate powder room provides an additional hand basin.

    The covered, spotted gum rear deck offers a fabulous, generous outdoor living area overlooking the soft turf of the screened, neatly landscaped rear garden. A wonderful old apricot tree shelters the deck on one side and a walnut tree shades the garden. Other delights include lemons, Morello cherries, white nectarines, grapes, plums and figs, as well as many bulbs, while garden beds provide plenty of room to grow veggies. A clothesline is tucked into a north facing nook and there is a garage and garden shed.

    From this superb location in a friendly neighbourhood, it is a stroll to coffee at Downer or Dickson and is in-area for many well regarded schools. It is just a short walk to the new light rail stop for a smooth trip into the City. Great recreation is nearby, Dickson swimming pool, tennis at Lyneham and walking trails on Mt. Majura and Mt. Ainslie.

    This much loved and beautifully crafted family home offers warmth and lifestyle in an outstanding location.
