Secure and fenced off from traffic and noise, you enter this family home via double gates that open to the front, private lawn area and garden retreat. This original 1950 built home is set on a 779m2 block. Updated and modernised but retaining many period features, the home provides 3 generous sized bedrooms all with built in robes and timber floors. The master bedroom is opposite the formal lounge which is perfect for the whole family to relax and unwind in front of the fire place or just enjoying some TV time.
A private study or home office is set to the rear of bedroom 3 and is the perfect place for exam preparation or perhaps balancing the accounts. The U shape kitchen with integrated butler's pantry provides plenty of storage, bench space and boasts electric cooking, dishwasher, breakfast bar and more. A casual meals area plus a formal dining room offer ideal settings for meals from family dinners to elaborate dinner parties.
Entertaining is where this home really stands out. The large rear yard contains a sheltered porch, perfect for placing the BBQ, the rear verandah is enclosed with caf blinds for year round comfort and is set above the an expansive deck overlooking the crystal blue, solar heated pool.
To the rear of the property there is extensive garaging for numerous vehicles, twin storage rooms, a lawn area for pets & children, a large concrete open space area for manoeuvring caravans, boats or any other type of vehicles. A workshop and separate studio / man-cave / rumpus room complete the picture.
This is a must see for families wanting to move into the area. Scope still exists for updates, renovations, additions or even development as this block is zoned medium density and potentially could accommodate up to 4 dwellings (STCC), so you can move in now & develop later!
From an investment perspective, this property was previously leased at $650 per week and should be quickly tenanted as demand is high. Potential return could be increased with minor renovations.
