Consider a gift that you gives your family not just a new place to come together but a new place to call home in one of Greensborough’s most prized pockets. Tidings of comfort and joy await at 39 Symon Crescent. The kids will love climbing the trees out in the backyard or riding their new bikes up and down this quiet family-friendly street. In summer, invite the neighbours over for a barbecue out on the paved terrace, and in winter entertain in style by the burly brick fireplace in the rumpus room. Space – inside and out – is in ample supply at this 814-square metre property. The handsome, double-storey brick residence sits well back from the street behind a manicured front yard with walled garden beds and topiary-trimmed hedge borders. The backyard is even bigger. It has lush green lawns and gardens flush with colour. From the size of those big, shady trees, it is difficult to believe that the house was built just 16 years ago. There is a sense of establishment here in the Sunrise Estate that belies its vintage. The whole neighbourhood has certainly come of age. It benefits from proximity to the Greensborough Highway and the Western Ring Road and from being within the coveted St Helena College zone. The houses that line the streets of this area are alike in stature, style and size; they are large and well presented without being ostentatious. This property is no exception. It was built by a reputable builder whose artisan-quality work is commonplace around these parts. The vendors bought the then-new spec home through the same agent they have asked to conduct this sale. The tip-top condition of the property is testament to only having one owner. Untouched since the 1990s, the house still impresses with a large, country-style kitchen with green granite benches and splashback, dark timber cabinets, dual ovens and stainless-steel dishwasher.

Depending on the occasion, dining can take place either in the elegant lounge and dining room, which has plush carpets and high ceilings, or in the meals area that forms part of the family hub. It is bound in glass, ensuring natural light and garden views are part of the furniture. Glass double doors open to the verandah and back terrace. In this sense, the property was designed ahead of its time. It effortlessly connects indoor and outdoor living, just like the contemporary designs of today. Ideal for live-in relatives or guests, there is a fifth bedroom on the ground floor. It is served by a good-sized powder room off the laundry. Alternatively, this space would make the ideal home office. Its vicinity to the entrance means that clients can come for meetings without having to tramp through the house. There is space to wait in the elegant entrance hall, which makes a suitably big first impression at this property. The entrance to the double garage, which is connected to the street by a paved driveway, is nearby. Most of the accommodation is up those sweeping stairs. The main bedroom faces the street and has all the luxuries you would expect in a property of this calibre. It has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with spa, twin vanities and separate shower. The three kids’ bedrooms are zoned away from this parents’ retreat. They all have built-in wardrobes and share a family bathroom with bath and separate toilet. A study nook off the landing is a private space to hit the books. If we look at the property as a whole, it really does have it all. You may not be able to wrap it up with shiny paper and a bow, but this full-package property will star at the top of someone’s shopping list this Christmas. \ LIAM CARTER BUCkINGHaM – aGENT 5 2 2 Buckingham Real Estate \ 9435 0999 Price \ $620,000 + Auction \ December 22 at 1pm Fast facts \ Two-storey 16-year-old brick house on 814-square metre block in the prized Sunrise Estate; St Helena College zone location; paved driveway and double garage with internal entry; large granite-clad kitchen; three living zones, including rumpus with fireplace; main bedroom with spa en suite; study/fifth bedroom; large, flat backyard with established trees; outdoor entertainment area.
