For Sydney house hunters priced out of the property market, there are some cracking deals just an hour north, like this immaculate family sized house, which costs about the same as an Inner West apartment.
Set in the boutique Brushwood estate, the brand new Masterton home at 8 Falco St, Wadalba offers a carefree lifestyle in a lovely community filled with owner-occupiers.
The generously sized home would be perfect for a family, but could also appeal to downsizers.
“The place is set up for retirement with modest lawns and little maintenance,” agent Andrew Sorensen said.
“It would also suit a family because everything is made quite large — all four bedrooms are big enough for king beds.”
Enter inside the home and walk through via the foyer and wide hallway to arrive at a schmick open-plan living space that spills onto a covered entertainment area and small grassy yard.
The Hamptons-style kitchen includes stone benchtops, walk-in pantry and large Smeg appliances.
Solid blackbutt timber flooring and plantation shutters give the place a light and airy feel, the perfect space for entertaining.
Imagine hosting a get-together with friends, grilling up dinner on the built-in barbecue while socialising outside.
With an extra living room for the kids to watch movies in, there is so much space for families to relax and unwind.
Other highlight features include ducted airconditioning, a main bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe and solar panels.
“The property has all the latest energy efficient standards and full insulation, which will bring down the cost of energy bills,” Mr Sorensen said.
Surrounded by green wildlife corridor, the land was originally a series of paddocks that were developed into 88 blocks, which are now filled with families building beautiful homes just like this one.
Wake up to hear the sound of birds singing, yet down the road there are all the modern conveniences that a family would need — supermarkets, a school and the M1 Motorway, which is just a ten minute drive away.
The ultimate lifestyle package, Mr Sorensen said that there was absolutely nothing to do for the house from front to back.
“Just fire up the barbecue, grab a beer and start enjoying it,” he said.
