About this listing
Here's a place with all the space you could wish for - space to cocoon a large family, space to entertain in style and space to tuck yourself away in a quiet corner and relax.

This substantial, two-storey brick home is conveniently located in the inner north-eastern suburbs, close to Greenacres Shopping Centre, and is set back a comfortable distance from the road, behind a high brick wall that - along with the roller shutters and sound resistant glass on the front upper and lower windows - helps keep the sounds of the world outside at bay.

The 780 square metre (approx.) landholding has a wide frontage of about 20 metres, creating a large front garden and paved area with plenty of room to turn a car around and exit forward rather than by reversing - an important safety advantage. With the double side by side garage and paved area in the front yard, there is also sufficient space to park four to six vehicles off street.

From the moment you step inside from the entry porch, the generous proportions of the rooms make a striking impact that's given extra emphasis by the light touch of the quality timber laminate and tiled flooring.

First you notice the formal lounge and dining area, almost eight metres long, then continue past the carpeted stairway to the more informal rear section of the ground floor. Here, the well-appointed kitchen offers ample cupboard space, a gas cooktop and dishwasher, as well as a separate, walk-in pantry tucked in a corner.

The kitchen opens out on one side to a light-filled meals area, on the other side to a family living space and, beyond, to a games room which easily accommodates a billiard table.

Completing the downstairs amenities are the laundry, a powder room/toilet and, on the right of the entrance, a study which could also come in handy as a utility/exercise room or even as an extra bedroom for those occasions when you need more than the four upstairs.

Apart from those four bedrooms, the upper floor has the bonus of a second family living room as a quiet retreat for the kids or the adults, a separate toilet, and a spa tub in the upgraded family bathroom for some bubbly relaxation.

While the second, third and fourth bedrooms are all comfortably proportioned with built-in robes, it's the palatial master bedroom suite that provides a real wow factor. It ticks all the boxes with a dressing area, walk-in robe and ensuite with his and hers vanity basins.

For year-round comfort the home is heated and cooled with ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, and a 5kW solar system provides a valuable buffer to rising power bills. For peace of mind, there's a security system and an electrically operated front gate.

The private, family-friendly back garden and lawn adjoins a covered al fresco entertaining area that extends beyond the house and leads into an expansive paved area accessed from the two-car garage as well as the main building.

Both inside and out, entertaining has never been so easy.
