The house is in a complex but it is not a gated community. It's still in Brisbane, but is a more northerly suburb to our place...probably about a 20 min-30 min drive for us. I had checked out if there was anything in particular she would like for her house and she gave us 2 suggestions...we bought her the slow cooker. It had to be white to match the other appliances in the kitchen.

It's a lovely modern little compact house. It has 2 good-sized bedrooms upstairs with a large bathroom and separate toilet. Both bedrooms have large built in robes. Downstairs is an open plan living and dining area that leads into a small kitchen. The laundry is a tiny room off the kitchen. There is a small courtyard as well at the back. The single garage is at the front. Thre is also a 'cloakroom' (loo and basin) near the internal door to the garage. After our tour of the house, we had a lovely meal and an enjoyable evening.

|Her house is set back behind the garages, giving some privacy in the complex|
