RELAXED family living is on offer in this Woodvale residence.
Owners Maria and John Carroll have lived at the property for 13 years, renovating and updating the home throughout that time.
“We completely redecorated throughout including rendering the inside walls, the kitchen was upgraded six years ago and we put in a new ensuite to the main bedroom 18 months ago,” they said.
“Outside, we built a boundary wall to the front in 2014 for added privacy, rendered the front of the house for a more modern look and we recently turned a patio into a relaxing Bali-style area.”
Alongside the patio, a decked alfresco area overlooks the pool and landscaped gardens, perfect for entertaining, while another secluded courtyard at the front of the home offers a private place to relax in the sun with a book.
The light and bright open-plan living and dining zone, with warm terracotta tiling, downlights, ceiling fan and airconditioning, is overlooked by a kitchen featuring a breakfast bar, pantry, wall oven and double fridge recess.
A games room provides further space and has a built-in timber bar, high gabled ceiling, exposed beams and gas potbelly stove.
The master bedroom stands out with feature wallpaper plus a walk-in robe and new ensuite with double vanity unit and luxury shower. The second bedroom beside the master is ideal as a nursery, while the third and fourth bedrooms at the back of the home also feature wallpaper and built-in robes.
The large driveway on the 745sq m property with R40 zoning offers plenty of parking alongside the carport and garage.
“We love the area due to the proximity to amenities, five-minute walk to buses and the train station, two shopping precincts within walking distance, restaurants, local taverns and it is in the catchment area for Woodvale primary school and secondary college,” Maria and John said.
