WITH it’s neat courtyard garden and double lock-up garage this Bicton home has lock-and-leave written all over it.
Set at the rear of townhouses on Waddell Street, the house has secure driveway gates for extra peace of mind.
And when it’s time to head for home because you’re missing the grandkids, there’s plenty of room for them to stay with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
When the screaming gets too much, take them to the nearby Bicton Baths or Point Walter for a dip.
With off-white tiles in the ground-floor kitchen, lounge and dining area, it doesn’t matter if they’re dripping wet on their return.
Whip them up something their parents won’t approve of in the spacious kitchen, which has stone benchtops and a floor-to-ceiling pantry.
Then it’s out through the stacker doors to the courtyard al fresco for brekkie, before bundling the little darlings off home, buzzing from all the sugar they’ve eaten.
Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, along with a bathroom and laundry.
The other two including the main are on the second level, which has stylish and low-maintenance honey-gold bamboo floors.
All the bedrooms and the downstairs lounge have lovely white-plantation shutters on the windows.
The generous main bedroom has a dressing room and a spacious, semi-open en suite.
Power bills won’t be a headache with 16 solar panels on the roof, and there are no strata fees at this small townhouse complex.
Melville shopping centre is a mere four minutes walk away and there’s no shortage of shops and cafes nearby, or catch a bus on the Canning Highway to Fremantle.
