About this property

Start the new year off right – Buyers guide price from $1,080,000

This large 4 bedroom house has something for everyone. On first inspection, its street presence is undeniable. Well established hedging and gardens welcome you through to the feature stairway that leads up to the front door.

Off the entry way is the first of three living areas complete with plush carpeting and exposed feature brickwork. The space is flooded with natural lighting and beautiful garden views.

Past the kitchen you'll find the second living area that could serve as a well-situated dining room or additional living space with powder room nearby. Not to be overlooked is a fully enclosed storage room that could serve as pantry overflow, linen storage or a carefully disguised junk room (everyone needs one!).

The property flows effortlessly into the third and final completely enclosed living space that could also double as a 4th bedroom, lounge area, rumpus room, work from home space, teenager retreat etc. The main bedroom in particular exudes historical charm with original timber joinery robe and mirror combination.

The backyard is just as inviting as the front, with hedges and trees shading immaculate paved areas and pathways throughout. In addition to the carport is a newly built, 30m2 brick garage complete with roof insulation, power and lighting. The opportunities for this space are endless - think workshop, gym, wine cellar, man cave or teenage hang out!
