Found for the family – live the Eastern Bays lifestyle

Proudly located on one of Glendowie’s much-loved avenues, 73 Whitehaven Road showcases fantastic family living in a picturesque garden setting. The peaceful surroundings, perfectly flat site and well-established lawns and grounds evoke feelings of being in the country, but are located so close to everything the Eastern Bays has to offer.

The safe neighbourhood is within easy walking distance to all the lifestyle attractions the area has to offer – Churchill Park, local beaches and the popular tennis, bowling and boating clubs. Families with children will relish the excellent school zones, including Churchill Park School, Glendowie School, St. Ignatius School and Glendowie College. St Heliers village is close by, along with the Glen Innes train station for a quick and easy commute to the city.

The residence is a traditional bungalow that’s been expanded and modernised to offer more living space and a contemporary floorplan. Solid weatherboard construction and single level living ensure peace of mind, while high ceilings and polished wooden floors add character to the interiors.

A smart road frontage introduces the property, with the white picket fence offering both pedestrian and driveway gates. This creates a safe and secure place for kids and pets to play freely. Two trees form an archway over the pedestrian gate, setting the scene for the mature trees and gardens that envelop the home.

These trees entice a vast array of native birdlife, with many Tui visiting on a regular basis. There’s plenty of off-street parking down the driveway, as well as the separate double garage building. This generous space also offers a generous workshop and ‘man cave.’

From the entry foyer, glass double doors open into the large formal lounge. The area is warmed by the wood fire, while French doors open out to the front deck and garden. The open-plan kitchen overlooks the dining space and has been recently renovated to offer a more modern feel and appliances, with granite benches and a breakfast bar.

There’s a guest toilet and separate laundry up here before steps arrive down at the sunken lounge and fourth bedroom. French doors flow out to the sun-drenched back deck, which is protected via the thick, manicured hedge. The back lawn is another expansive flat area, with raised bed veggie gardens and framed with secure fencing.

Back inside, the hallway offers three light-filled bedrooms. Two share the family bathroom while the master has an ensuite and enjoys views over the front garden.

This property has been well maintained both inside and out over the years and still offers potential to further personalise and add value.
