There is a solar - heated pool surrounded by a large landscaped rockery, a pergola,bbq & dining area plus a separate gazebo with lounges.There is no pool fencing so families with small children would not find it secure.
The other half of the house has 3 more double bedrooms, one used as a study & the other for storage so only 1 double bedroom is available. This area has a separate bathroom & toilet & its own family room. The laundry is also here with access to the outside drying area. All bedrooms are carpeted with the living areas being tiled & parquetry flooring in the lounge/dining room (not suitable for pets).

The house has ducted airconditioning for hot weather and a gas heater (main family area) for cooler weather. There are expansive views of the garden area from all living areas.
