THIS tri-level home was built in 1995 and Gail and Ivo Davies bought it in 1996, liking that it was a new home in a tranquil setting close to the beach.
The setting remains the same, in the sought-after quiet end of Branksome Gardens and a short stroll from the main beach or dog beach.
The couple said it was a green leafy street, with friendly neighbours who held a street party every year.
They have enjoyed having the beach and Bold Park on their doorstep, as well as the proximity to schools, sporting facilities, city and major shopping centres.
The home has also stood the test of time, with the owners keeping it well maintained and carrying out several renovations over the years.
It has plenty of living room and is ideal for a family.
The ground floor includes a versatile space near the entrance and a large open-plan living/meals/kitchen area.
The kitchen was renovated in 2015 and has Corian benchtops, double Smeg oven and gas cooktop, appliance cupboard and an abundance of storage.
Doors link the open-plan living area to a pergola, creating a lovely indoor/outdoor space suited to entertaining.
The good-sized outdoor area has room for sitting and dining suites and has played host to many family gatherings.
An activity room with direct access to the backyard is ideal for the kids and is near the three minor bedrooms, all with built-in robes, and main bathroom.
Two bedrooms open to a balcony with verdant views.
Parents have their own peaceful space upstairs where there is a living area with treetop views and master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite.
The home’s lowest level includes the double garage and store room.
The home is on a 657sq m corner block with established gardens including peppermint trees and limestone terraces.
The owners are downsizing.
The agents are seeking offers from high $1 millions.
