This property has plenty of spots to sit unwind and relax
Few suburban homes can claim a backyard big enough to have two separate barbecue and entertainment areas. But this contemporary styled Glenhaven residence, at the end of a private gated driveway, is situated on a traditional acre backing onto bushland.
It is a rare find in the leafy suburb and a popular choice as it enjoys the benefits of a semi-rural setting without the high maintenance.
The gently sloping property, located at 69 Evans Rd, has an abundance of lawn for youngsters to run and play on, while parents can keep a watchful eye from many vantage points. Among them, a sunken spa built into a deck at the rear of the home.
The 3260sq m property is less than a 10 minute drive to Castle Towers
The outdoor space is an ideal spot for entertaining friends as it has an all-weather kitchen and alfresco dining area complete with a television and strip heaters.
Another separate hardwood deck, affectionately known as “the helipad” by its current owners, is at back of the sprawling rear garden. As its nickname suggests, this is a large space and provides another location to soak up the tranquil gum tree vista.
A path of stepping stones leads to another barbecue area and outdoor fireplace overlooking a pretty bush garden and creek.
The home is located at the end of a private driveway
“This lovely residence will appeal to many as it captures the essence of a family home tailored for comfort and convenience,” said agent Steven Ford from LJ Hooker Dural.
The property has just been listed with a price guide of $3m – $3.3m.
An irrigation system ensures the grounds, which include fruit trees and has daily visits from kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets and galahs, are always green and lush.
The outdoor kitchen and built-in spa
The main residence offers total privacy and security as it is not visible from the street. The entry is just off a circular driveway which overlooks shaped hedging and a water fountain.
Inside, the interior is light-filled and has been decorated in neutral tones with frosted glass internal doors and parquetry floors.
Clever use of bi-fold doors and large windows throughout ensures a seamless connection with the outdoors.
The house has been designed with a mix of formal and casual living areas, including a media room.
The recently renovated kitchen, by deGabriel, is fitted with Miele appliances, storage drawers, display cabinets and can accommodate a large fridge. It also features a large island bench with 60mm stone benchtops and seating for two.
The home is set against a bushland setting
The bathrooms have also been recently updated. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and luxury ensuite featuring a double vanity in sea green marble, a curved glass screen and double shower heads including a rainwater feature.
The self-contained granny flat has its own kitchenette and separate bathroom.
A sound system is fitted throughout the home as well as LED lighting and ducted air-conditioning. There is also a large cellar.
The 3260sq m property, which has a triple carport, is just a short drive to Castle Towers and the future railway.
