First time to market in more than 60 years: updated family charmer

Warm and inviting, this much-loved and extended family home is dotted with enviable textural features including slate floors to an enormous enclosed entertaining patio and bespoke timber cabinetry and panelling that gift the interiors with an updated retro charm.

The sitting room is the standout beneficiary of these aesthetic delights. With sliding door access to the patio, it's a chilled room that gives off upper-class Mad Men vibes and fittingly flows to the open lounge and dining zone through a bespoke oversized archway.

The renovated kitchen is the lynchpin for these living areas. Spacious enough to accommodate multiple cooks and fitted with a clever coffee nook-come-workspace, it's a happy and efficient place from which to cater for family and guests.

In addition to the grand rear patio, a terrace deep in the backyard benefits from beautiful northerly light plus a built-in barbecue and would be the ideal spot to watch children or pets tearing delightedly around the large expanse of lawn.

Three substantial bedrooms include a master with quadruple banks of mirrored wardrobes, while beds two and three include sizeable custom cabinetry for storage, homework or even a TV.

Brilliantly located in a walkable neighbourhood close to reserves, playgrounds, Lyneham Preschool, Lyneham Primary School and the iconic Tilley's café, this single-level home will also put you within minutes of light rail transport and the city and is ready for its next family to enjoy all it has to offer.
