It’s just amazing.”The two-level house has impressive living spaces, with an incredible living room just off the entry, which has a two storey void and a 5m floor to ceiling window next to an open fireplace.

The main living room has a jaw-dropping 5m window.“We took all the golden canes and palm trees out of the back garden, put in fruit trees and built a raised vegie garden just near the kitchen,” Ms He said.“We put in two rainwater tanks, put some solar panels on the roof and built a chook pen.”The additions have contributed to feeding her family hundreds of meals in the decade she had lived at the 221 Springwood Rd property.
