This four-bedroom house sits at the base of the MacDonnell Ranges in the popular Desert Springs Estate. You can lie in bed in the main bedroom and watch the sun hit the ranges early in the morning. The main bedroom has an ensuite that is connected to a large walk-in wardrobe with lots of hanging and storage space. There is a split-system airconditioner in the room to go with the evaporative cooling system throughout the whole house. The large lounge room also has a splitsystem airconditioner. There are gas heating options in the lounge room which has an attractive bay window. The lounge room is carpeted, as are all the bedrooms. The three minor bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and are at the other end of the house away from the main suite. Orchids can flourish in a feature planter with a skylight above it. There is a polished wooden bench where you can to sit and admire them. The kitchen is neat and modern with lots of cupboards and pot drawers. It has a gas stovetop and an electric oven and a breakfast bar. The kitchen is part of an open-plan living space that has plenty of space for dining. The windows in this area have views of the ranges. A glass sliding door opens on to a the large backyard with a lawn and entertainment potential. A freshly-mulched garden bed on one side and a rockery on the other side perfectly frame the awesome landscape. There is a decent-sized garden shed and a clothesline on one side of the house. The other side leads to the front, with enough space and a gate big enough for vehicle access. There is a double carport out front with more space for parking on the driveway. The freshly landscaped native gardens in front of the house are low maintenance. The automatic dripper system operated from inside the house makes watering the garden easy. The front of the house has a homesteadstyle brick veranda that follows an L-shape to the alternative entry to the kitchen area.
