BUYING a home over the festive period might be the best Christmas present ever.
Often viewings aren’t as busy and you have a better chance of getting an offer accepted and standing out from the crowd.
This four bedroom two bathroom house is tailor made for a modern family with its large floorpan and high energy-efficiency.
This double brick and iron home has a solar hot water system, rainwater storage tanks, and a 6.5kw solar system with 15kw battery.
Some green homes can be quirky in their design or a bit of an ugly duckling, but this one is stylish and a real looker.
The exterior has a natural render that contrasts nicely with the dark garage doors and grey slabs in the driveway.
It’s a minimalist facade that is pleasing on the eye.
The spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area has lovely light wooden floors and high ceilings, enhancing the sense of space.
A lot of modern homes (this was built in 2014) are a bit generic with their colour scheme (generally wall-to-wall magnolia) so the Chook really enjoyed the dark blue feature wall, which is inset with a TV and a real-look gas fireplace. I imagine once the fire is roaring in winter, it would be a cosy spot to curl up with your favourite Netflix show or Wimbledon.
The u-shaped kitchen is stylish with light benchtops and darker wood-style cupboards and drawers. I like the rack for the saucepans on the wall – a quaint nod to yesteryear – and there’s a nice breakfast bar, giving you a choice of dining options.
The bedrooms are all spacious with the main having a walk-in robe and a gorgeous ensuite with a stylish stone double vanity.
There’s some lovely earthy tones in the ensuite and it feels a bit like spa resort.
Sometimes in newer 4x2s the garden is an embarrassing footnote – usually a strip of fake grass – but this has a spacious rear courtyard with room for a dining and lounge setting.
Some nice shrubs and trees fringe the Colorbond fence and it’s all distinctly low maintenance.
It’s a pretty little alfresco that is big enough to host decent BBQ lunches and get-togethers.
The home includes a second living space (great as the kids get older), chefs kitchen with butlers pantry, evaporative air-con and secure lock-up double garage.
Situated on a 328qm survey strata lot (no strata fees or strata company) on Carrington Street on the border of White Gum Valley, you are close to loads of parks, schools and public transport, and Gilberts, Charlies and Big Loaf Bakery are just a short walk away.
