FAMILY HOME: This 1970s classic with easy-care gardens and plenty of lawn space is ready for your family to move in and enjoy. Photos Open2view

THIS lovely three-bedroom family home has lots to offer and is located on a very private, rear section that practically backs on to Sullivan Lake Reserve.

With an 1103-square-metre, fully-fenced section, close to primary, intermediate and high schools, this is an ideal home for a growing family, with plenty of room for the pets, too.

Kopeopeo shopping centre is just along the road, and the long driveway taking you far from traffic noise makes it very peaceful.

The 1970s-built home is a brick-and-tile, three-bedroom, one bathroom classic. Aluminium joinery in the communal living areas and a modern colour palate throughout have added to the charm, along with an updated bathroom and kitchen.

Easy-care pebble gardens are filled with succulents and semi-tropicals. As well as an enclosed carport, the property also has a separate hobby room or workshop.

The living areas looking out over the backyard are north-facing making this a warm and sunny home.

The spacious living room has a free-standing wood fire and bi-fold windows and is open to the dining area where French doors lead to a concrete porch overlooking the backyard.

The kitchen opens off the dining area with a breakfast bar, wall-oven, ceramic-top stove, dishwashing machine and all the mod cons.

The bathroom has a corner bath and shower and has been modernised, with tiled floor and bath surround. Three double bedrooms lead off the hallway.

There are lots of opportunities around the property to add value and your own flavour, whether your DIY ambitions include a complete make-over or just a few touch-ups, but this home is ready and able to move into and enjoyed just as it is.

The vendors are expecting interest over $470,000. They have moved on and require a sale.
