Timber floors feature throughout the home.“You can sit out there, listen to some tunes and watch the kids play in the pool,” she said.“We entertain out there all the time — my hubby built a bar out there from half a tree someone was selling and he built a corner (shelf) for the stereo as well.”The home has timber floors to the living areas and carpets and built-in robes in the bedrooms.The bathrooms and kitchens have also been updated.There is a double lockup garage at the front of the home, and the 607sq m block is fully fenced.The property is being marketed by Loren Mulholland and Jonathan Gordon from Ray White Redcliffe for offers over $629,000.last_img
