WHO needs an overseas holiday when you have a backyard like this?
Entertain in the alfresco area with decking, pitched roof, ceiling fan and built-in sink or relax in the poolside gazebo surrounded by tropical gardens.
There is even a tennis court and basketball hoop where you and the kids can while away a few hours.
Inside there are more options for entertaining and recreation, with a huge games room with timber-lined ceiling, full-size billiard table and built-in bar.
There is also a large family room with fireplace that opens to a veranda overlooking a charming cottage-style garden, and an open-plan kitchen/dining/living area.
The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The master has built-in and walk-in robes and spacious ensuite with spa, shower and double vanity unit.
There is also an office and study opening off the games room.
This part of the home has a separate entrance and can be turned into a granny flat with bedroom and bathroom if desired.
The location is idyllic; the home is on a 1959sq m block close to the Carine Open Space.
You can walk to the lake and even see horses, a lovely rural sight, through the early morning mist.
The home is also close to the train station, shops, bus stops, a skate park for the kids, a five-minute drive from the beach and in the catchment area for Carine Senior High School.
