THE white picket fence outside this cosy Inglewood home is more than a feature – it’s an emblem of the lifestyle it offers.
This property is determined to make you feel at ease. You might have to lift a finger to operate the electric front gate, but that’s about it.
The low-maintenance front yard could be left as is, or there’s space for a small flower bed for those who like to get their hands dirty, and the small porch is perfect to relax with a cold lemonade in summer.
You’ll have time to sip all kinds of cool beverages, as the house is move-in ready and has been immaculately maintained.
Inside the brick cottage the jarrah floorboards gleam from the abundance of natural light streaming through the windows, with high ceilings enhancing the sense of space.
The floor plan is open and inviting, with bifold doors opening onto the garden for summertime merrymaking, and a fireplace where you can cuddle up in winter.
Situated close to Inglewood Primary School, it is the perfect house for a young family.
With less that needs doing, you’ll be able to focus on making memories.
The terrazzo-style flooring in the renovated bathroom feels clean and tasteful, and the high domed ceiling has the charming expansiveness of a Turkish bath.
The kitchen is impressive, with oodles of cabinet space and stone countertops. It’s open to the rest of the house and the garden, so while hosting a dinner party the chef can actually enjoy it.
Or you could barbecue in the backyard, where a big grassy space offers lots of soft padding for clumsy young knees.
At the rear of the property, an air-conditioned free standing studio is an opportunity for a young professional to balance seclusion and presence.
Located on a 355sqm block on Tenth Avenue, this two-bedroom one-bathroom home is about 100 metres from Macaulay Park and bus stops, and a short walk from Beaufort Street and the heart of Inglewood.
This sweet abode promises the ease and togetherness that lies over the white picket fence.
