While the quality of the build and inclusions is typical of all the villas at Walka Grange, there can be no denying that in this instance, being located in the centre of the Village and only comfortable stroll from the elegantly appointed Clubhouse and facilities, makes it pretty much perfection.
The Villa features two, generous bedrooms with built-in robes, a modern kitchen complete with Fisher & Paykel appliances, an open living and dining area that lends its self to either relaxed or formal entertaining and connects to a covered alfresco complete with a natural gas fittings for a bar-b-q and power.
Another feature of the Dalwood design is that the laundry is offers access not just to the garage, but to the the alfresco and includes a second WC; meaning it isn't necessary to tramp through w the house to use the bathroom when working in the garage or the rear yard.
Speaking of the rear yard, it would be equally ideal for a small pet or the avid gardener.
