About this property

Perfect position, ready to modernise and add further value

Positioned in a quiet street with little through traffic, the location of this single level home just 150m to the Downer Village local shops and oval is sure to appeal.

There is room in the driveway off the road for multiple vehicles plus a single carport is attached to the right side of the house with drive through access to the rear yard if you need to accommodate a trailer etc.

As you enter the house, the living areas are located away from the bedrooms. The main living area has full length windows looking into the rear yard separate from the meals area which has an outlook to the front yard. The original condition kitchen has electric oven and cooktop and ample storage cupboards and is ripe to be modernised and extended.

All 3 bedrooms share the main bathroom which is also in original condition and at this end of the home you will also discover access to the rear yard through the laundry. The ample size of the rear yard offers plenty of potential to extend the home without losing usable space for the family. The flat block makes development easier as site costs would not involve elaborate site cuts or constructing expensive retaining walls.

Just 300 metres away, the Dickson town centre offers a wealth of shopping options (especially food) and is an easy spot to grab the light rail to the City. The convenience of this location is a big draw card and at this price bracket you can finally afford to get into this tightly held Inner North locale where the land values protect your investment well into the future.
