IMAGINE when the mother-in-law came to stay, she had her own self-contained studio.
At night she could munch her Tim Tams and watch Sons and Daughters on Blu-ray, and you could enjoy The Staircase on HBO.
Well that could be a reality at this property in Hilton, which has a main home and a self-contained second dwelling, all situated on a lovely 560sqm green title lot.
There are loads of options for the second dwelling including having a passive income, guest accommodation, home office/consultancy, or an abode for older kids who refuse to leave the nest.
But we are getting ahead of ourselves – what about the main three bedroom two bathroom home?
Well it’s a stylish affair with beautiful stone floor tiles, clean lines and plenty of natural light.
They say Hilton is the garden suburb, and the owners have taken that to heart with different shades of green on the walls of the main living area.
It shouldn’t work, but it does, creating a very tranquil, relaxing vibe as you walk around.
The Chook really likes the garden; it’s a stunning landscaped number with lawn, pavers and an abundance of plants, trees and bushes.
There’s also a large patio area for alfresco dining, and large screening bushes that give you privacy from the studio accomodation (and the mother-in-law).
There’s a Mediterranean vibe to the garden with the limestone, vines and plants creating plenty of nooks and shady arbours.
The studio accomodation is lovely and features a gorgeous wooden staircase leading up to the massive bedroom.
I’d happily live here full time and it’s all been finished to a very high standard.
Built in 2003, the main north-facing home has a solar passive design.
“Being solar passive, the home has lots of light and warmth in winter and cross ventilation for summer breezes,” the seller says.
“…The salon end of the main house could be modified to include a kitchenette and a sitting room to create a further self-contained area. I also love the privacy and location of my home and the many trees and bird life that surround.”
The home includes a 2kW Solar panel system plus 4kW Inverter, split air conditioning systems and secure garage.
Situated on Oldham Crescent, you are only a few streets away from the local school, and close to Mumma Bee Café, Grigg Park and the Hilton Harvest Community Garden.
This is a lovely and very versatile two-for-one in Hilton.
