Home is where children are happy

"I think as a family you'd like to get close to 1000sq m or 800sq m as a minimum and you usually need about 1400sq m to get a house and a pool or tennis court.'' Mr Brown said most parents tried to time their real estate purchases around their child's schooling.

"They like to get the kids settled in December or January before the start of the school year.''

LJ Hooker Stirling agent Simon Mackie said families looked for properties that gave them with room to move.

"Young families tend to look for about 1000sq m because people want to have room for a reasonable sized house and a backyard big enough for the kids to be able to run around a bit,'' he said.

"The main thing is that there should be more than one living space.''

Mr Mackie said families were increasingly looking to the Hills.

"Generally, Hills suburbs are less dense than the metro areas; the blocks tend to be larger,'' he said.

Jim Zavos built a home in Kensington Gardens with an indoor pool, an underground home theatre, a billiards room and a playground to satisfy the interests of his three children.

"We were looking to create an environment where the kids would be happy to stay home and invite friends over and we wanted to create a cool place to be, not just now but as they get older,'' he says.
