House of the week: 13 Paroo Avenue, Eleebana

Properties on the lake’s edge will always be in demand, but this Eleebana home brings much more to the table than just its sensational water views. 

Positioned on one of the suburb’s premier streets, a series of renovations over the years have created a stunning contemporary residence, accompanied by a fully self-contained granny flat above the garage and a solar-heated pool. 

And agent Louise Vico said the lakeside location was not just for show. 

“It’s nine foot deep at the end of the private jetty so you can get a cruiser in,” agent Louise Vico said. “The home’s also got its own slipway where you can winch your speedboat up.” 

The vendors have raised their family at the home over the last 25 years but have decided to downsize to an apartment.

With its own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, the granny flat was ideal for a home business, Ms Vico said. 

”Over the years as the vendor’s children got older they have all lived in the flat at various stages. It could also bring in some extra income if you wanted to use it as an Airbnb.” '

The quantum quartz kitchen has self-closing drawers and ample storage. Outdoor balconies off both storeys are perfect for entertaining and two outdoor showers add convenience. 

There is ducted air conditioning on the lower storey, with five additional split systems. 34 solar panels keep energy costs to a minimum. 

“The master suite has knockout views and then there’s another two bedrooms that have got lake views,” Ms Vico said.
