The space opens out to a formal dining area that flows easily through an open walkway to the more casual parts of the home, including an open-plan family and meals zone overlooked by an updated kitchen. 

The area transitions smoothly to the outdoor courtyards, thanks to the glass sliding doors.

Also found on this level is a powder room, laundry and a fourth bedroom that can equally be used as a study. 

The other three bedrooms with built-in robes are found upstairs, including the spacious master that hosts a walk-in robe and en suite.

Additionally, a parents’ retreat or rumpus area and the updated main bathroom with a double vanity, bathtub and separate toilet room are found on the upper level.

Surrounded by landscaped, established gardens with lawn and entertaining areas, the home has been immaculately maintained. 

High ceilings and an abundance of windows, with plantation shutters throughout, ensure light-filled spaces, while comfort is maintained with ducted heating and cooling and a ducted vacuum.

The property includes a double garage with internal access, while there is additional room for cars outside. The home is within walking distance to local shops, schools, and public transport.

The property at 4 Barclay Place in Nicholls will be auctioned on Saturday, August 19 at 11am on site. Price guide: $800,000+
