The kitchen is modern and tidy.Ms Donaldson was drawn to the low maintenance lifestyle the property offered, as well as the potential for some additions.“There was potential for me to do a few things to make it more suitable for me,” Ms Donaldson said.“I added a carport on the front and added the ensuite … as well as a bit of landscaping.“The house has been fully painted and in one of the girls’ rooms I’ve added a study nook and a robe.” The backyard is low-maintenance and the shed on the left has been converted into living spaces.“Every weekend we walk up to a little coffee shop, Badminton Brew, which is about 500m away in the backstreets,” she said.“One of the girls’ requirements was that we were still near the coffee shop.“One of them always gets a raspberry and white chocolate muffin, while the other gets a bacon and egg muffin.“The community is also amazing, everyone knows everybody.”Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p432p432p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
