House of the week: 173 Somerset Drive, Thornton

This classic, Georgian-inspired family home has everything a growing family could wish for. It features 5 living spaces, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, screened outdoor entertaining, double garage, caravan parking and side access to the large back yard.

With a sleek, classic facade comprising square brick columns, the home has a commanding street presence, which is made all the more attractive with lush, manicured gardens and a three-tiered water feature.

The ground level is the living area wing with a formal living room, formal dining, casual meals and family room all surrounding the central kitchen.

The kitchen boasts ample cupboards and drawers, laminate benchtops and a large, double door, pantry as well as a dishwasher.

The kitchen and meals area flows through to the family room and also out to the fully enclosed, outdoor entertaining room, which makes a large, indoor-outdoor entertaining hub perfect for everything from large parties to small weekend barbecues.

Upstairs is largely the bedroom wing of the home, although at the top of the landing there is a spacious games area that is ideally suited to being a toy room or a teenager’s retreat.

All of the bedrooms are generously proportioned and feature updated carpet, freshened paintwork and ceiling fans.

Other features include a fully fenced yard with beautiful Jacaranda and Frangipani trees, an off-street concrete caravan pad, side access and a double garage.
