Large rooms, tall ceilings & solid walls all the way through make for a very spacious & comfortable home. Consisting of 4 really generous bedrooms, multiple living & dining areas & a large country kitchen.

A long concrete driveway accesses the shedding & rear garden. A terrazzo tiled front porch leads you to the timber front door that opens into a causal living / family tv room. There is a 2nd large living / lounge room with dining alcove set at the front of the home, with large windows looking out to your front garden. Feature lighting set into a decorative ceiling rose & fancy cornicing edges the room. Reverse-cycle air-conditioning & an old-fashioned oil heater, ceiling fans & external roller shutters are all insitu to help regulate the temperatures all year round.
Both living areas are accessible to the kitchen & casual dining space. An original timber kitchen is still in good order & a quite generous space. Offering a decent amount of storage – both overhead & under bench, with a large fridge cavity & island bench. A rear access door opens out to a covered rear verandah with tiled floor set on the far side, creating a sheltered & private space to BBQ or entertain.
There are 4 really large bedrooms. All accessed via a wide central hall, that really emphasises the decoration! Multiple styles of wallpaper feature in this part of the home – all very much influenced by the 1970’s decorating styles! The hall is home to a 3-bay, floor to ceiling storage cabinet. 3 large guest / kids’ rooms each feature a different wallpaper with neutral carpets. The master bedroom is discreetly tucked at the back of the home. A huge room that spans the entire width of the home. An eyepopping mixture of colour from the floral wallpaper to the bright blue “groovy” carpet. A private ensuite bathroom & built-in robe storage create a practical yet personal space.
Outside is perfect for family life. Big lawns, veggie beds, rainwater tanks & a fantastic 9m x 6m shed with loads of parking spaces for vehicles, caravan &/or boat are set in the large, fenced block. Just add gates to secure it all in.
A quiet street, with no through traffic means the kids can play safely. Local sporting grounds, the beach, Lakala reserve & the historic shopping centre in The Strand are all within walking distance & the local R-7 school is not too far away. All this makes for a fabulous location for your family home / retirement home or even a weekend retreat for now with potential for your forever home in the future!
