**Another sold by Phyllis, Cook's real estate specialist - $1,472,000**

This mid-century home in the convenient suburb of Cook, is ready for your family to move in and enjoy.

Well-considered renovations and a minimalist palette deliver a modern and crisp interior. Family friendly carpet, hardwood floors and soft white walls create restful spaces with views to the garden from all rooms.

The flowing floorplan adapts for both connection and separation in busy family lives. Both the lounge and dining room are inviting gathering points while the updated kitchen provides streamlined efficiency when catering for family and friends.

A huge central deck outside, links the main house and studio. Protected by waterproof sails the deck is perfect for relaxing and entertaining in all seasons.

The master bedroom is sensibly positioned on the ground floor, accessed through a private study (or parents' retreat) leading to the downstairs bathroom. The deck is easily accessible through sliding doors for morning coffee in the sun.

Up stairs there is an additional living area with views to the tree canopy of the street, which links the three bedrooms together.

The bonus of this home is a sizeable and beautifully fitted out studio with its own powderroom. French doors from the studio lead to a private deck that in turn spills into the back garden. It's easy to imagine it in use as a superb creative space for writers, artists, musicians, or as a gymnasium or room for teenagers or visiting family and friends.

The walkability of this home's location is among its many assets. A five-minute stroll will bring you to the Cook shops and locally loved staples such as Little Oink café, gastropub To All My Friends, and quintessential small supermarket, The Cook Grocer. Close by, green corridors lead straight to bushland trails at Mt Painter Reserve. Multiple schools, medical services, offices and larger retail offerings can be reached by car in just minutes.
