About this property

2-storey abode with flexible living options – buyers guide price from $1,175,000

Discover the fusion of modern living and convenience. Nestled in the tightly held and carefully planned suburb of Forde, known for its contemporary charm and accessibility, this two-storey gem located near to Mulligans Flat nature reserve, invites you to experience the epitome of comfortable living.

As you step inside, you'll immediately appreciate the ingenious design, with bedrooms and living areas strategically facing north to bathe the rooms in natural light all day long. On the roof, you'll discover the 10.18KW solar panels, offering an environmentally-friendly energy solution, while underfoot, the elegant bamboo flooring adds a touch of sophistication to every stride you take.

With three generously sized bathrooms, including one downstairs, perfectly suited for the 5th bedroom located downstairs - this home offers convenience and comfort for all family members. Upstairs, the remaining four bedrooms await and there is even a study nook for the kids to do their homework. The layout ensures privacy while maintaining a cohesive living experience.

Step outside to find not just one, but two outdoor entertaining areas. Perfect for hosting gatherings & BBQ's. When it's time for takeout, head over to 'Da Bronx' to try the New York style pizza or mouthwatering offerings at Frankie's at Forde. Families will also appreciate the nearby schooling options plus Aquatots swim school, offering a fabulous experience for the little ones.
