Highlighted by neutral tonal range throughout, the freshly painted home’s living spaces are filled with natural light.

Accessed directly upon entry, the front living room is enhanced by a combustion wood fireplace, which takes centre stage before leading to a spacious dining room.

This zone leads directly to where all the activity is, the u-shaped kitchen with ample cupboard space, essential appliances, including a dishwasher and a breakfast bar that spills into the family area.

Here, one could easily set up an additional casual lounge space as it thoroughfares onto an elevated deck, overlooking the more than spacious rear yard.

Also sharing access to the pergola, which has added privacy thanks to the cafe-like blinds, is a generous laundry.

Back indoors, and secluded from the entertaining spaces, are the more private zones including a well maintained bathroom with shower, bathtub and separate toilet.

It services the three bedrooms, two of which come with built-in wardrobes.

Space for family cars is ensured thanks to the free standing four car garage and large workshop area as well as a carport attached to the side of the brick facade.

The home can easily be extended, converted or renovated.

Other features include reverse cycle air-conditioning unit, ceiling fans and ducted heating.

The property at 8 Main Close in Chisholm will be auctioned on Wednesday, October 11 at 1pm on site.
