- Light floods into the neat kitchen from the leafy window, featuring penny-round tiled splashbacks and a seamless connection to the dining area through elegant French doors.
- The bright and expansive dining space seamlessly transitions into an elevated sundeck, boasting lush tropical views and district glimpses.
- The backyard is a tropical haven, complete with landscaped gardens, two patio areas, and a sprawling level lawn.
- Venture beneath the house to discover a large laundry space and studio/office space, alongside a functional workshop and storeroom.
- The convenience of a laundry chute is built into the kitchen cabinetry that lands directly in the laundry basket below.
