The kitchen is in the open-plan living area.The 448sq m block has low-maintenance, established gardens.Mrs Browne said the patio was her favourite space in the home. “We have a pizza oven, barbecue and TV outdoors and it’s where we do all our entertaining,” she said. The Brownes also enjoy being able to stroll along the nearby lakeside trails and wander down to the local cafes for a coffee.“We’ve really enjoyed living here, but it’s time for us to downsize further,” Mrs Browne said. The home is close to primary and secondary schools, public transport, Orion Shopping Centre and local shops.
