If ever there was a home worthy of the moniker ‘family sized’, it’s this one.

With five bedrooms, an updated kitchen and light-filled living spaces inside and out, there’s a lot for the whole family to like about 8 Sax Place in Macgregor.

“Either an extended or large family, or even someone looking for an extra space, would be the most likely buyers,” Luton Kippax sales consultant Ben Oostermeyer says.

The master bedroom comes complete with an ensuite and walk-in robe and is positioned away from the remaining four generously sized bedrooms, which all include built-in robes.

But families will likely prefer to spend their time together in one of the two large, bright living areas. Both rooms are covered in white from floor to ceiling, courtesy of a fresh coat of paint and light-coloured porcelain tiles, which both extend throughout the home.

“You’ve also got a directly north-facing front door, which brings in a lot of natural light through the day,” Ben explains.

The living and dining room is positioned adjacent to the master suite at the front of the home, while the family and dining area at the rear offers easy access to the garden and kitchen.

Home chefs will enjoy views of the garden from the refurbished kitchen, which includes a new bench top and appliances, including a glass cooktop, dishwasher and oven.

Pull open the glass sliding doors and you’ll find yourself in the back garden, which Ben says is quite a bit larger than you might expect from a 615 sqm block.

“It’s set up to be a fairly low maintenance yard, but you could redevelop it into a gardener’s haven or just grass it out and set it up for kids to play,” Ben suggests.

There are also already plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors with the current set-up, which features established shade trees and privacy plantings, a handy utility space to the side and a double gate to an adjacent reserve.

“It’s a very quiet location,” Ben says. “There are open paddocks nearby you can enjoy while walking, but it’s also only a couple of streets away from bus routes.”

For the energy conscious or those looking to green their new home, a 28 solar panel array and two 5 kilowatt inverters and a substantial water tank and pressure pump are also included.

Creature comforts include ducted gas heating and a double garage with an electric door and internal access, complemented by plenty of off-street parking options for guests.

The home at 8 Sax Place in Macgregor will go to auction on Saturday, 2 September from 2 pm. It is open for inspection on Saturday, 19 August from 12:15 pm to 12:45 pm and on Tuesday, 22 August from 4:30 pm to 5 pm.
