It was just the perfect home for us as a family.”Married for 22 years, Mr and Mrs Kotzee and their daughters, 18-year-old triplets, are looking forward to their next adventure as a family.“It is time to move on; the girls have finished school and my husband and I are moving south to be closer to their universities,” Mrs Kotzee said. The large living room.,The property is set for an online auction on Tuesday at 6pm.With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house is set up for family living, according to Keyes & Co Property director, Damien Keyes.“It could suit either a family with younger children as well as teenagers as there is more than 400sq m under roof, so there is plenty of space,” he said. The house has been big enough to accomodate a family of five comfortably.Built about 10 years ago and set across 1286sq m of land, the residence comes with an expansive outdoor entertaining space that overlooks the resort-style in-ground concrete pool.
