SPEND next to no time gardening and more time enjoying life with the family.
The low-maintenance lifestyle of the house at 14 Vantage Lane, Yarrabilba, was what drew Carol and Nigel McClure to it when they bought it more than two-years ago.
“We were attracted to the fact it was low-maintenance — there is no mowing or anything to be done,” Mrs McClure said.
It was an ex-display home but had obvious appeal, with luxury inclusions such as ducted airconditioning, built-in speakers and a soaker tub.
Given the fact that the property was only recently built, there was not much for the couple to do, but they did extend the back deck and the roof above it.
This area is now one of Mrs McClure’s favourite spaces at the property.
“It’s got surround sound speakers throughout, so its nice to sit out there and have the music on in the background,” she said.
“It’s also good for entertaining.”
There are four bedrooms, with separation between the main bedroom and the others.
The master has a walk-through wardrobe behind the bed and an ensuite with a double vanity, shower and separate bathtub.
Most of the house is tiled, with some of the bedrooms carpeted.
Development of Yarrabilba began in 2010 and the community continues to blossom.
Last year Yarrabilba State School opened and there are fortnightly night and Sunday markets.
“It’s an up-and-coming community,” Mrs McClure said.
“It is convenient, with coffee shops and walking tracks.”
The vendor believed the house would suit multiple buyers.
“It could suit either a young couple or an elderly couple as everything is walking distance and it has got a bus stop out the front.”
