Spacious & single level with over $120,000 in upgrades – Buyers' guide price from $1,200,000
This prestigious, extra-large, 3-bedroom, single level townhouse offering 170m2 of living space is located in the ever popular 'Sanctuary' complex which adjoins 'Yowani Golf Course'. Positioned on a corner it has windows on three sides & a desirable North aspect plus front & rear courtyards for outdoor entertaining, the perfect, low maintenance, luxurious lifestyle you have been searching for is now available.
The generous open plan layout maximises the usability of this home, not wasting any space with hallways or staircases. The formal living room also opens out to the front courtyard and offers an outlook across a strip of reserve (rather than into another backyard) enhancing the feeling of space around you. In the middle of the home the formal dining area then flows into the family room at the rear & is designed to be segregated with your furniture rather than solid walls.
This is the perfect low maintenance home for the busy professional looking to make use of the nearby city life without worrying too much about maintenance or an older couple looking to downsize from a big home on a big block but not wanting a small unit or townhouse with stairs. The body corporate ensures the grounds are extremely well maintained & the development even includes a playground ideal for the kids or grandkids & a BBQ & picnic area.
This desirable single level floorplan is always in short supply in this development (& the Inner North as a whole) & we believe there will be a strong level of interest at this price bracket, so make an inspection a priority.
