Welcoming Glen Forrest retreat

ON a 2529sqm block this Glen Forrest home has reserve views, the heritage trail close by and is an easy walk to Glen Forrest village and schools.

The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home has a big man cave, a cricket net, outdoor entertainment options and a winter creek with a footbridge to the Thomas Park Reserve and the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.

Well-designed and maintained the family home has timber flooring, a renovated kitchen and a separate study.

With views across the winter creek, the 1975-built brick and tile home has alfresco entertaining areas, landscaped gardens and a below-ground saltwater swimming pool.

Black butt timber floors, slow combustion heating and plantation shutters create a welcoming atmosphere in the lounge room.

The warm-toned timber flooring extends through the home to the open kitchen and dining area.

The recently renovated kitchen has a solid wood-slab bench top along with new white cabinetry, an induction cooktop, electric oven, dishwasher and corner pantry.

Two bedrooms with white plantation shutters are close to the fully tiled family bathroom. 

A well-sized study leads through to the big third bedroom that could easily double as a parent retreat or guest room. 

Secluded from the rest of the home and with direct access to the swimming pool this area includes a powder room.

 Outside, bore-fed reticulated gardens blend seamlessly into the reserve giving a sense of this property extending beyond its boundary line. 

The 13m by 8m insulated man cave has room for a pool table and bar area and a workshop. 

Additional secure storage is found at the rear of this building along with a cricket net.
