Renovated three years ago the kitchen includes a giant island bench.“We totally refurbished the kitchen and opened it up by putting a window in looking out on to the pool. >>>FOLLOW THE COURIER-MAIL REAL ESTATE TEAM ON FACEBOOK<<< The renovated ensuite has been fully tiled and complements the adjoining dressing room. “The house has worked brilliantly for our family,” he said.“It’s one of the largest blocks in Brookwater.” If you want to view this property, contact the agent for an inspection.

The kitchen was renovated three years ago, and the family have put lighting and landscaping around the 10m x 4m saltwater pool.
