Location, size and potential won over Matt and Jane Anderson when they bought this spacious home in sought-after New Lambton around 16 years ago.
The house at 90 Orchardtown Road also offers versatility. It is currently set up as four bedrooms but could easily be five.
"The thing that attracted us originally was the fact it's got really good bones and the rooms are all big," Matt said.
"The bedrooms are massive. The smallest bedroom would be a master bedroom in anyone else's house. It's a really expansive house."
They have renovated and updated throughout but are now downsizing.
On ground level the open plan kitchen and dining flows to covered outdoor entertaining and an in-ground swimming pool. There are two living spaces, a reading room and study plus a main bathroom.
Upstairs are four sizeable bedrooms, including the master suite, and two bathrooms.
The house is positioned on an elevated corner block with views to Blackbutt Reserve and the Andersons have loved the proximity to the nature reserve as well as cafes and Blackbutt Village.
There are polished timber floors, a CaesarStone kitchen, low-maintenance yard and automatic single garage with a large workshop or storage area.
It is being marketed by Todd Mason, of McGrath New Lambton, with a guide of $1.05 million to $1.125 million and is set for an on-site auction on June 22. It is open for inspection at 11.45am on Saturday.
