It’s that Mediterranean feeling

Al fresco summer entertaining and relaxing at one of the family homes lining a broad Lake street has a distinctly continental air.

Having distinguished itself with its great location in The Fairway, detached number 26 also has well-cared-for accommodation and a bonus in its leafy back gardens.

It is a gazebo, with the leaves of a flourishing grape vine forming a green canopy and making you feel as if you were eating out in a Mediterranean country.

In summer, the owners of 25 years have their breakfast, lunch and dinner there. With adjoining decking — with the vine and a palm growing through it —flowing into a patio, this is a wonderful entertaining space.

Back in the modernised home, a heated conservatory forms a superb link to the patio and can be used year round .

After discovering a smart kitchen, welcoming lounge, formal dining room, shower room and three bedrooms, there is another bonus to be found.

It is a loft room, with a Velux window and eaves storage space, reached via a pull-down ladder, and could be converted to another bedroom, subject to any necessary permission.

With schools, tree-filled Los Altos Park and the cliff path a walk away, the house has parking for three or four cars on its paved frontage.

Next to the secluded gazebo in the sizeable west-facing back garden is a shed with power and light.

A lawn with shrub borders runs down to a wildlife pond shaded by a pretty eucalyptus tree and beyond it is a big timber workshop, also with power and light.

The covered front door opens to a hallway with a side window and stairs to the first floor.

Turn right and you come to the lounge, with a square front bay window and a period open fireplace with a wooden surround and tiled inset.

Next door is the good-sized dining room, with a matching open fireplace and double doors to the PVCu double-glazed conservatory.

This airy space, with pale terracotta-coloured tiled flooring, has a lovely garden outlook and double rear doors, which can be opened to the patio and to let in summer breezes.

An inner lobby, with a WC leading off it and a side door, has space for a fridge-freezer and cream-coloured floor tiles continuing into the rear-facing kitchen.

Fitted with glossy cream units and with breakfast bar seating for two, this long room has a point for a cooker, an integrated fridge and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.

Off the upstairs landing, with its side window, are the bedrooms and a shower room with a white suite and fully tiled walls.

Bedroom one, with a rear garden view, has a vanity handbasin and fitted furniture, while bedroom two, with a built-in cupboard, and bedroom three have front glimpses of Los Altos Park.
