    Impressive family home, backing Mt. Majura, with a GRANNY FLAT!

    This substantial family home is situated in a prime location backing Mt. Majura reserve, on a block of approx. 906 m2, in an attractive street shaded by a dense canopy. Set amidst established gardens the home has excellent street appeal. With an ideal north aspect to the rear, this 1962 Jennings home has been extended to create generous, separate living areas and a fabulous, roomy, self-contained one bedroom flat, which can be enjoyed as part of the home. Laid down at the time of extension, the Colorbond roof provides uniform coverage and adds contemporary appeal.

    The formal lounge and dining have an elegant, open plan feel. Large timber windows frame the leafy outlook, while an ornate cornice, quality drapes and new carpet through the lower level, complete the look. A new Daikin reverse cycle air conditioner ensures comfort. Formal living flows into the bright meals/kitchen area, which has a fresh colour scheme and features a Westinghouse ceramic cooktop and oven.

    In the spacious master bedroom on the lower level, a romantic bay window is a standout feature, and there is a wall of built-in robes. The main bathroom has been updated and includes a bath.

    From a carpeted foyer a staircase leads to the upper level, which offers a light filled, north facing living area overlooking the reserve, a bathroom and three bedrooms, all having built-in robes. The front bedrooms are particularly large and have a wonderful outlook to the leafy canopy.

    A study on the lower level provides access into the self-contained flat, and has a door to a separate driveway.

    The fantastic, large, north facing entertaining area is covered with a new pergola and clear sheeting, and this sheltered area is a great place to relax while enjoying treetop views over the reserve.

    The lounge in the flat is an extraordinary size and has lots of light. A hallway opens to the kitchen, a bathroom and the spacious bedroom. This features a corner window on the north aspect with a lovely outlook over the reserve. The design of the flat allows it to be used separately or smoothly integrated with the rest of the home.

    In the rear garden, a purpose-built, two-room studio offers space for hobbies and perhaps a workshop. In front, a fernery with pergola shelters the entertaining area.

    The enormous area of productive veggie garden offers some self-sufficiency and there are three water tanks. An array of 18 solar panels, as well as solar hot water, reduces costs.

    It is just a short walk to coffee at Watson shops and to Majura primary, the pre-school, Rosary primary and Blue Gum school. Pathways running through Mt. Majura reserve are on the doorstep.

    The location is unsurpassed, while the well-presented home offers the family an enviable area of living space and generous bedrooms. The luxuriously large, self-contained flat would meet a variety of needs, perfect for older relatives or young adults, and the garden studio is endlessly useful. A rare offering to the market, outstanding in every aspect!
