Home of the week: Griffith home celebrates the simpler era

You'll be charmed by 64 Captain Cook Crescent the minute you open the gate. The classic 1950s rendered facade is enveloped by greenery, lit up by flashes of colour from the brightly planted gardens.???

A spacious living area is the hub of the home, overlooking the gardens. The sunken space creates a feeling of depth, ensconcing you in the room.

Large windows open to an alfresco dining area, covered with a wisteria-draped trellis. The garden is planted seasonally, and set up with automatic irrigation.

The cosy formal lounge, which looks out to the street, has an open fireplace, and is perfect for entertaining. A music room and dining room connect fluidly to this zone at the front of the house.

The generous main suite has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite, adjoined by a flexible extra bedroom or study. A private wing to the rear hosts two additional bedrooms, with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom.
