The house at 5 Delphin St, Kenmore, is for sale.
NESTLED in a quiet pocket of Kenmore is the house that Laurent Corroy and Michael Clark have called home for the past three yeas.
Mr Corroy said they had always enjoyed the Kenmore area but had never realised the part of the suburb where their house at 5 Delphin St is, existed.
The outdoor entertainment area is one of Mr Corroy and Mr Clark’s favourite spaces.
“We’d also driven by and never knew all these houses were actually here,” Mr Corroy said.
“It’s a lovely little pocket of homes (and) as soon as we’d moved in, all the neighbours had come to introduce themselves.”
Mr Corroy said some of his neighbours had lived in the street since it was developed in the 1970s and said his house once belonged to cricket great Greg Chappell.
Imagine relaxing by the resort-style pool.
“Greg Chapell was apparently the first family in this house.
“We’ve appreciated knowing the history of the property, as it gives you a greater sense of connection to the home.”
This is where the couple like to entertain.
Mr Corroy said the house was part of a subdivision of farm land owned by Wallace Bishop.
“You can still see the original homestead up on the hill,” he said.
“Even when we were diving the vegie garden, we found a couple of horseshoes, which we’ve kept.”
Inside the house was renovated before they moved in.
He said the house was recently renovated when they moved in, but they had spent a lot of time landscaping.
“We’ve put in a vegie garden, ornamental gardens and a nice sitting area,” he said.
“We love the outdoor entertainment area the most.
“It goes onto the pool area and its north facing so it’s beautiful weather all year round.”
The main bedroom is massive.
Mr Corroy said he and Mr Clark had enjoyed the local walking tracks and parks, such as Rafting Ground Reserve.
“It’s a beautiful spot for walking the dogs, two little west highland terries called Snowie and Angus, and the occasional picnic.”
