With a total floor area of 352m2 , there is an abundance of living space, both formal and informal, 3 full bathrooms plus guest toilet with plenty of in built storage. There were no short cuts taken when it came to the quality of the fixtures and fittings, and while 12 years since it was renovated, it hasn't dated at all.

The tranquility of the contemplation garden is unparalleled, offering peace and privacy while being only moments from the CBD. The double garage with an additional two off street carparks are an added bonus - this is a home you will live in and love for many years to come.
