Two comfortable bedrooms with carpet and ceiling fans provide peaceful retreats. The stylish main bathroom is a testament to practical elegance with a standalone framed glass shower, toilet, mirrored cabinet, and vanity with storage.

An internal laundry with built-in cabinetry and external access adds to the convenience, complemented by a practical garden shed for extra storage.

Echoing the main house's charm, the granny flat features a cladding and Colorbond façade. Inside, a calming neutral colour palette and floating floorboards create an inviting atmosphere.

This haven includes three bedrooms with ceiling fans and built-in robes. The main bathroom, with tiled flooring, a framed glass shower, and a vanity, also conveniently houses the laundry facilities.
