Massive picture windows open to the north, enjoying the spectacular views, second to none in the ‘Bay’. The upstairs floors are beautiful Spotted Gum floor boards. The spacious kitchen includes an island bench/breakfast bar, stone bench tops, pantry, 900mm oven with glass cook top, dishwasher etc. Upstairs also includes the master bedroom & ensuite, plus a guest bedroom, bathroom and toilet.

This area is cooled and heated with split system air conditioning. Two other bedrooms are downstairs which have built in robes and share another spacious bathroom and separate toilet. All the bedrooms have large built in robes. Downstairs there is also a large laundry boasting ample storage and bench space. Flowing from the laundry is a sizable general-purpose room, with direct external access to the front of the home. This would suit a home business or other professional service.
