House of the Week: 24 Algona Road, Charlestown

Whether it is summer or winter, the expansive deck of this spacious family residence is the place to be.

It has been one of the most loved features of the home for owner Tania Eddon.

“The deck is pretty extensive, it goes along two sides of the house,” Tania said.

“The best thing is sitting on the deck having a cuppa in the morning, getting the morning sun coming up.”

Its L-shaped deck enjoys an elevated position overlooking an inground pool and barbecue area.

It has a separate “man cave” retreat with bar as well as an almost internal outdoor area which adjoins the dining area and offers protection in winter. 

The three-bedroom residence was built in 2006 and although “a well-worn family home” is immaculately presented.

“It was a project home but we changed a few things so it was more spacious,” Tania said. “Instead of four smaller bedrooms we wanted three larger bedrooms and a bigger main bathroom.

“It’s a nice family home with plenty of space.”

The home set on 841 square metres is unassuming from the road but once through the front door a hidden sanctuary is revealed.

The master suite, with bathroom and walk-in robe, enjoys position at the front of the house. It adjoins a large living space which can be separated from the rest of the residence.

At the rear is the open plan kitchen, living space and two other bedrooms.

It is located close to schools, Charlestown Square and beaches.
