An ideal downsizer

Retirees or downsizers looking for a smaller home but with a double garage will find Gallery Living’s Van Gogh 175 a top option

If you’re looking at retiring, you will want a home that not only makes life easier but will happily accommodate the grandchildren. Sitting at 175.3 sqm total size, the compact three-bedroom, two-bathroom Van Gogh 175 design by Gallery Living is ideal for older families looking to downsize without missing out on modern features.

Features such as a double garage so you can securely park two cars or have some extra pottering space, a main open plan living zone, plus the the option of an alfresco out back. The master suite is placed at the front of the home, ensuring privacy from the other two bedrooms as well as good security, both an essential when the grandchildren come to stay.

Complete with a walk-in his and hers robe and a good size ensuite with a long vanity, the homeowners will be provided with a private oasis. Past the internal garage entry, the hallway opens out to reveal the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area which adjoins to an optional alfresco via sliding doors.

With the galley kitchen overlooking the living zones, and featuring a walk-in corner pantry and plenty of benchtop and storage space, it’s perfect for entertaining family and friends. Behind the kitchen, a second hallway takes you through to two further bedrooms and family friendly three-way main bathroom. The bathroom is cleverly sectioned off, with a large bath and shower room, a separate toilet and wide vanity in the open powder room.

A laundry is placed next to the bathroom, and has backyard access and plenty of space to keep washing, linen and household cleaning items. Both bedrooms offer spacious dimensions, ensuring there’s room to add further storage if required.

Perfect for a courtyard or villa allotment, this compact llm wide home is ideal for couples, singles or families wanting to downsize or simply enjoy low maintenance living without it costing a fortune.
