There’s also a large stone patio area with plenty of space to dine al fresco, or you could head across to the block built summer house, where there’s a built-in BBQ and seating area. Spacious lawns to the rear and side of the property are sure to be enjoyed by younger members of the family, while mature trees add a sense of privacy.
