Photo: Tim MarsdenThe decision to sell her Yeronga home of the last quarter century has been a tough one for Sylvia Beem – but it’s time to downsize.“It’s a big heart wrench to be honest,” she said. And it’s easy to see why she’s loved raising her family in the Hamptons style five-bedroom, three-bathroom home, because it’s a stunner.Whether children are little or big, there are plenty of usable spaces in the home. For example, Beem said the kitchen looked through concertina doors to the yard.“If you’ve got young children you can watch them playing in the garden while you’re cooking dinner,” she said.When treehouses adult, this dream home is what’s possibleWhy it pays to style a propertyGet the best Real Estate and Property News in your inbox freeMore from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours ago140 Kadumba St, YerongaThere’s also a library and separate office on the upper level, so older kids and parents can get away from the family buzz if needed.Beem said she used part of the four-car garage as an art studio, and its loft was self-contained with a bathroom and kitchenette. “It’s a guest quarters or for teenagers who want that little bit of independence,” she said.Beem also said the pool pavilion was perfect for outdoor entertaining.“You can have parties by the pool.

He was the leader through Stage 1 and 2, but fell to 18th place with 73 laps to go.”I knew we had a great race car all day long and we were fast. I just didn’t know how well we would be able to come through the field and get back through traffic and get our way back worked up to the lead,” Busch said. “Fortunately we had to have a little luck on our side.”In addition to the milestone, Busch tied Richard Petty’s NASCAR record as they both hold 200 career wins.
