Susan’s part of the family

You could see the emotion as the vendor of this Susan Street, Maylands home spoke of his 16 years here.

I almost expected him to start patting the fixtures and fittings as he spoke.

But needs must and the family caravan is heading…well just elsewhere in Bayswater actually, as everyone really loves the area.

Sitting on 518sqm this is not your average duplex.

There’s a spacious formal lounge at the front, with a lovely bay window onto a cute courtyard garden.

And at the opposite end of the home you step down into an equally well-proportioned and light-filled study overlooking the garden and pool.

The main bedroom has its own sheltered courtyard garden, complete with a timber deck from which to enjoy a book in glorious solitude.

Leafy views

A commodious open-plan living/dining/kitchen is central, with banks of windows and doors giving leafy views across the suburb.

The kitchen is huge, with plenty of drawers and cupboards, including a pantry and swathes of preparation area.

But with a roofed deck overlooking the garden and pool the vendors are just as likely to be barbecuing.

That is when they’re not in the pool, or lolling next to it, sheltered from the blazing sun under sail-shades over a second timber deck.

As the vendor says, this is a great family home, close to schools and shops, not to mention Eighth Avenue’s funky cafe scene.

And for a different sort of recreation, the river foreshore is a pleasant stroll away, as is Gibbney Reserve.
