About this property

Its got the position, you just need to add the personality

Sold under the hammer for $844,000 - 7 registered bidders.

This authentic, 1960's brick & tile home presents a fantastic opportunity to move to this highly sought after location. The home borders a reserve & is surrounded by mature trees for privacy. Largely original condition throughout, there is plenty of scope for you to add your own touches to modernise & breathe new life into the property.

Overlooking the established front garden is the cosy living room, which flows through to the dining room & kitchen offering plenty of room to entertain. In original condition & overlooking the side & rear yard, the kitchen is one of the first places you will want to turn your creative flair.

All 4 bedrooms offer mirrored built-in sliding robes & there are separate bathrooms, toilet & laundry rooms for added convenience.

The home is surrounded by mature vegetation & offers potential veggie garden, chicken/bird/dog/cat enclosure plus an aviary.

Enjoy the added convenience of a carport, large driveway that can easily accommodate 3-4 vehicles & finally a double metal garage which has the added bonus of 3 phase power. Located in a quiet street & siding reserve, the position of the home on this flat block leads itself to renovation and/or extension potential to add further value.

Downer is a suburb on the rise with the highly anticipated refurbishment of nearby Downer shops nearly complete, close proximity to the Dickson shopping precinct & a multitude of great bike paths into the City centre.

Our aim is to make a purchase of this home as smooth & easy as possible as per our Friendly Auction Campaign'. Please contact us with any questions on the home or the auction process, we are here to help.
