If ever a house was tailor-made for a downsizer, this is it – although families may show similar interest. It’s in a great pocket of town – looking out to a tributary of Arnold’s Creek and reserve with walking trails, plus just down the road, there’s Botanica Springs community centre with pool, gym and tennis courts for residents only.
Beyond a pretty cottage-like facade and formal gardens, the residence has entry to a grey-tiled hall with a grey-carpeted open study to the left.

Double doors opposite introduce the main bedroom, which has elegant window dressings (a feature throughout), a walk-in robe and en suite with a long vanity
Two more fitted bedrooms are along a second hallway they share with a separate toilet, laundry with overhead cupboards and the grey-and-white main bathroom.
The tiled living hub at entry hall’s end incorporates a stylish kitchen with mid-grey cabinetry, an extra-long brekkie bench, pearl-grey splashback tiles, a walk-in pantry, dual-drawer dishwasher and a Westinghouse 900mm cooker.
The living hub has two sets of french doors, one to the side yard where a wisteria vine creeps over an open pergola, beneath which are pretty groundcovers. The second set opens to a covered rear deck with ceiling fan. The deck looks out to a compact backyard, utterly private and beautified with charming cottage gardens.
Every part of this property is beautifully finished and displays an innate elegance mixed with practicality.
Other treats include ducted heating and cooling, 2.7-metre ceilings and a single garage with internal access to the entry hall.
