This lovely 1960s character home will delight families who want something special - something a bit different to run-of-the-mill homes without compromising on convenience.

It offers a tasteful and practical blend of modern amenities and original features, promising a unique, warm ambience as well as all the comforts today's families demand.

Built of brick and Colorbond, it occupies a block of 456sqm in Mira Mar, an excellent location central to the beach, schools, shops, medical facilities, golf and bowls, and a few minutes' drive from the CBD.

High ceilings and the original timber window frames feature throughout most of the home, and all rooms are well proportioned.

The main living room at the front is a warm, welcoming space combining the lounge and dining area, all heated by a wood fire set in the original fireplace.

Next is the big kitchen, with lots of modern ivory cabinetry and gas cooking, and a window overlooking the activity room, an addition to the original home, which also houses the laundry and toilet.

Hardwearing and attractive vinyl timber-look flooring is fitted in most rooms, and the lounge and bedrooms are carpeted.

Off a central hallway are three of the bedrooms - all good-sized doubles with built-in robes - and the bathroom with a big shower, bath and vanity. The fourth bedroom, off the dining room, is also a double and would make an ideal guest room.

There's a linen cupboard in the hall, security screens on front and back doors and smart venetian blinds at all windows, as well as neutral decor setting the home off to its best advantage.

The outdoors will suit those who prefer to be spending their recreation time having fun rather than slaving over the garden. The back yard is compact for low maintenance but has everything most people want - an undercover patio, an area of lawn, veggie beds, a woodshed and a rainwater tank - and it's fully fenced for privacy.

There's a deck at the front and more easy-care gardens and lawns as well as a sealed driveway and parking space for two vehicles.

Being in a sought-after neighbourhood with everything close by, this charmer will also appeal to investors looking for a solid prospect for their portfolio.
