She said the attraction was the buyers could move straight in and make their own touches in down the track.

Access to McDonald Reserve is a bonus.

The L-shaped house has an open-plan living and dining area and a smaller meals area off the central kitchen.

An enclosed retreat or study sits off a large deck overlooking the backyard.

The property also comes with a single garage, single carport and large backyard with a gate to the neighbouring reserve.
