Covered from the elements, it's a space that is practical, welcoming and peaceful at all times of the day and for all seasons of the year. Other important features include:
• At the heart of the house, the large living area has a charming cast-iron pot belly fireplace inviting cozy, comfortable family evenings spent indoors in the colder months.

Fitted with gas appliances and lots of bench space, it's the perfect space for preparing family meals, or for larger social gatherings, which are made possible by the vast amount of outdoor entertaining space.
• The lower ground floor offers an additional laundry/ utility room, an enormous amount of storage complete with a workshop under the house, a small study and another large entertaining deck.
LIVE. From the deck, a path winds down to a sunny, secluded and child-friendly garden that is surrounded by lush green ferns, tropical plants, and a beautiful Jacaranda tree. Family life will be made simple in this very conveniently located property.
