About this property

Buy 3 bedrooms and get 3 free at number three zero – Buyers guide price from $975,000

Positioned in a quiet street with little through traffic, this single level home combines functionality with flexibility and allows you to effortlessly adapt to changing circumstances, making it an exceptional investment for years to come in this tightly held Inner North suburb.

There is room in the driveway off the road for multiple vehicles plus a single carport is attached to the left side of the house with drive through access to the rear yard if you need to safely accommodate a boat, caravan or trailer.
Upon stepping inside, you'll be greeted by brand new flooring and a soothing palette of fresh paint, creating a sense of warmth throughout. The updated kitchen ensures your culinary adventures are both convenient and enjoyable.

One of the standout features of this property is the thoughtfully designed extension which seamlessly flows from the living area and introduces two additional rooms completely fitted out (not approved). Whether you desire a home with five bedrooms or prefer to have four bedrooms with an additional living space, this versatile layout caters to your specific needs in an affordable price bracket.

As you explore further, you'll discover a fully covered pergola to extend your living options, seamlessly blending with the house and setting the perfect stage for hosting memorable gatherings or simply indulging in moments of tranquil relaxation. Towards the rear of the property, a unique surprise awaits – the original garage has been re-purposed into a self-contained studio (unapproved). Featuring brand new carpets underfoot, wardrobes, a reverse cycle heating and cooling system, and even an ensuite, this converted space offers endless possibilities. It's perfect as a teenage retreat, granting them a sense of independence, or as a comfortable living arrangement for elderly parents seeking a cozy and convenient place to call their own, perhaps its just an excellent rumpus, hobby room or work from home space?

Located a very short walk from the Dickson town centre, the Downer village local shops and 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.
