Buyers Price Guide: From $1,375,000

This dual residence known as, 17A and B Davenport Street is the gift that keeps on giving! The front residence offers a character-filled, timber clad cottage built back in the 1950's which is ripe for an extension and/or renovation. A plethora of additional options are also available thanks to the repurposed garage at the rear of this huge block. Built in 2004 it now presents as a self contained 2 bedroom flat. Consider uses such as a luxurious home office, convenient guest lodging, artists studio, rumpus, close accommodation for live-in extended family, or even Airbnb it; the choice is yours.

The front residence offers three comfortable bedrooms, a combined living and dining space, laundry, and family kitchen. The weatherboard façade lends character and charm to the exterior, while a blend of updated and original interiors make you feel right at home inside. The sash windows throughout are a period touch and overlook the front yard where the owners have installed a double carport. The kids will love the wide-open space of the enclosed backyard.

Positioned at the very rear of the block, 17B is a pleasant surprise. Built in a modern style originally as a garage and workshop, it now offers living quarters consisting of a combined living, dining, and kitchen area. From this central space you can slip into the main bedroom that extends into a second living space also able to be used as a 2nd bedroom or head outwards to the full enclosed grassed front yard. It also offers laundry facilities and a full bathroom.

Both homes are just a short walk away from Bill Pye Park positioned at the end of the street, where the kids can play on the on the built-in equipment and for more advanced adventures, Mt. Ainslie reserve is just a little further down the way, where daily hikes can become part of your normal routine.

This property is not currently in a core zone development area so cannot be separately titled, any residences created must be sold together as one complete package which share the same 1165m2 block and you only pay one lot of water rates and general rates.
