Big block, charming home, cavernous covered alfresco, brick garage, shed, convenient yet country-feel location, affordable price...this address has it all! Just 4 kilometres from the CBD, a lovely 3-bedroom residence on a marvellous 797m2 is move-in ready for its next owners.
Though updates have been accomplished over time, many original features retain character for current and future ambience. High ceilings with ornate cornice are still treasured in most rooms and beautiful floorboards flow through the open living zone. Under a carved timber mantle, a gas heater sits in the fireplace where I can picture a gas log fire, though reverse cycle air conditioning has also been installed.
Graced with curved corners, quaint vintage cabinetry continues to delight in a vast dine-in kitchen space. However, a modern gas stove now does the work. In the bathroom, while upgrades have been made, endearing details include the original triple pane window, art deco tiling and tub. Overlooking the rear garden, the sunroom or sitting room is bonus for use as a playroom or home office.
Like living in the country yet only 6 minutes' drive from the city centre, open fields, parklands and playgrounds are literally a few doors away. It's a 6 minute walk to school, 10 minute bike ride to Marist College, 11 minute ride to a train station and 15 minute walk to the dog park.
Grab this great opportunity before it's gone, for with so many assets and scope to add personal touches, it is certain to sell fast!
