Western Homes : January 19th 2012
22 Thursday, January 19, 2012 Western Homes Glen Eden home has the happiness factor Some houses are merely lived in. Others are loved, lavished, enhanced, embellished into the happiest of homes - just like number 8 Palm Court Drive in Glen Eden. Owners John and Esther have created an outside environment that borders on the magical - complete with waterfall, easy-care cottage gardens, and a spacious covered courtyard with a great barbecue - the perfect entertainer. Add to that two sturdily constructed open decks that capture morning and afternoon sun, a good-sized double garage and a delightful street location, and this three-bedroom home is bound to attract plenty of admirers. The home is a classic brick, cedar and tile with a modern makeover that readily accesses the decks and gardens, as well as remodelling and extending the kitchen. Such is the warmth of this home, some north-facing windows have been tinted, which adds to the privacy of the lounge. Ceiling fans cool the air on hot summer days. The modernised kitchen is large, light and practical with lots of storage and food prep space, a ceramic hob, wall oven, dishwasher, water flter and waste disposer. It overlooks the character-flled back garden which is full of plants propagated on Esthers sheltered potting patio. The home also features separate dining and living areas, three good-sized double bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet and concealed laundry. It is beautifully maintained and presented, a dream to move into. Palm Court Drive itself is a real discovery - an attractive cul de sac tucked away off Great North Road and completely undisturbed. With the owners moving to a country lifestyle, this fne property is on the market with a price indication of high $300,000s - low $400,000s. Open Homes: Saturday-Sunday 1.00-1.30pm.
