Owners Shane and Rachel Phillips have enjoyed the home for the past 18 months with their family.

“We fell in love with the house when we first walked into it,” they said. “We loved the open entry and the light that comes in through the front window, the open-plan living/dining/kitchen, and the front patio.”

Starting from the undercroft level, there is a double garage with a workshop nook and a separate storeroom.

On the ground floor is the free-flowing main living space with timber flooring, which extends onto a sunroom via bi-fold doors.

This space, with a timber-lined ceiling and gas connection, can be opened up into a rear tiled courtyard to create a fully open alfresco entertaining space in summer, or closed up for the cooler seasons.

Off the dining room, there is another more intimate outdoor space.

“This front patio is such a peaceful place to sit and watch the world go by and listen to music through the speakers in the ceiling,” Mrs Phillips said. Completing this level are a powder room and the laundry with linen storage.

All bedrooms are located on the top floor including the master bedroom, which features a ceiling, plantation shutters, an ensuite with a bath, and mirrored built-in robes.

There is also a study or fourth bedroom, the main bathroom and extra storage.

The home is complemented by fully-reticulated gardens on the 201sq m green-title block.

“By having such low-maintenance gardens, it means we have a lot more free time to be able to enjoy the beautiful beaches, restaurants and the new sporting, barbecue and playground facilities at Charles Riley Memorial Reserve,” Mr Phillips said.

“The property is also well-secured, allowing us to lock up and leave for long-term holidays.”
