SPACIOUS HOME: This modern two-storey home is on a quiet street, close to the heart of town.

THIS modern, three-bedroom townhouse is elegant and convenient, yet comes complete with all those luxurious touches that we associate with executive living.

With a location that gives you easy walking access to the central business district, parks and riverside walkway, this home is in a surprisingly quiet neighbourhood. Being set on a 414-square-metre property at the end of a long driveway protects it from street noise and the fully-fenced backyard is completely private and secure.

The two-storey house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, while most of the downstairs level is devoted to a lovely, open-plan living area, with lounge, dining and kitchen. A large, internal-access garage takes up the rest of the downstairs level. This garage is very spacious and opens to the backyard. The garage also houses the laundry and a downstairs toilet, which is just one of the many features of this home that will have you thinking “how convenient?”

The lounge and dining area of this home opens to a large, north-facing deck, with built-in bench seating, which has been freshly stained and is looking fabulous. It is easy to imagine the wonderful summer barbecues which will be enjoyed here over the coming months. Fully fenced and screened with attractive olives, this is a very private sanctuary.

The remaining outdoor areas include more decking right along the back fence and a tidy, easily manageable lawn.

Back inside, the kitchen is as elegant and convenient as the rest of the home. Featuring tiled floors; hard-wearing, marble-look benchtops; double sink and modern appliances make for the perfect mixture of luxury and convenience.

A wide, carpeted stairwell takes you up to the bedrooms. These are all good-sized doubles with large wardrobes. The master bedroom comes with an en suite bathroom with shower, toilet and vanity. A large, walk-in wardrobe completes the package.

The main bathroom has a bath, shower and toilet. Quality window furnishings include wooden blinds upstairs and textured curtains downstairs and give an elegant feel to the home. Even the garage is wallpapered.

Storage is plentiful, with a large storage room under the stairs and outdoor storage for your extras.

Off-street parking alongside the house is yet another handy feature. This would be a wonderful home for a busy family with young children or an executive couple. Vendors are expecting interest over $650,000.
