Article excerpt

OWNERS Dianne and Rodger, of 2 Tassel Pl, Twin Waters, are selling their four-bedroom home and consider the worst thing about putting their property on the market is the stress... and the housework.

How long have you owned this property and where did you move from? We moved here from New Zealand 11 years ago and friends from Brisbane brought us up to the Coast for a look around. We were very impressed and first rented at Buderim for six months. Even though we loved that area we wanted a new house that was low maintenance. Twin Waters offered us just that.

What attracted you to this property? It's such a beautiful place. The minute I walked in, I just stood there and took it in. The floor plan flows really well.

Rodger is a builder and he considers it is. The family room and living room both flow to the covered outdoor entertaining area that overlooks the pool. The sitting area is well protected from the elements and at night, with the floodlights lighting up the palm trees around the pool, it becomes a really beautiful space.

The locals are nice and we have wonderful neighbours. There are only six houses in the street and everyone is very friendly.

What room or where is your favourite space? The house as a whole is very restful and tranquil. The dA[c]cor is neutral, which makes for easy living whatever the mood, time of day or season.

At any time of day it's peaceful and a nice place to sit and relax and then at night the lights make it warm and welcoming.

What will you miss most? Everything, both the house and the garden. Twin Waters allows us to live any lifestyle we choose.

How long did it take you to prepare the property for sale? Because of illness in the family it had been on our mind for some time but, when the decision to sell was made, it all happened very quickly. …
