As you approach the home, you can tell right away that it has been well loved and faithfully kept. It presents so well on the outside and this continues as you enter the central passageway beyond the welcoming front verandah. All of the timberwork on display here is original including the fretwork, shelving and double doors to the lounge. The superb glazed brick fireplace surround boasts the brass fireplace which is still open and useable. The original chimney is still standing proud.

The original, untouched timberwork continues with the double windows, architraves and skirting boards throughout. The master bedroom is large and offers both built-in-robes and a ceiling fan as does the second bedroom. Reverse cycle inverter with ducts to the 4 main rooms takes care of your heating and cooling needs.

The galley kitchen is very well kept with plenty of Baltic pine cupboards and gas cooking and the dining area is adjacent.

The bathroom offers floor-ceiling tiling. There is a separate laundry, separate w.c. and the third bedroom/sleep-out beyond that.

At the rear of the home is a verandah extending the width of the house providing room for outdoor seating and entertaining family and friends. The back yard is very neat, consistent with the rest of the home and boasts an assortment of productive fruit trees. The front and back gardens are deliberately established as low maintenance, with bark chips neatly applied between the trees and the bushes.

With the renovations and fittings that have been undertaken over the years the vendors have done a great job of keeping things as original to the era of the house as possible.

As the property offers a wide frontage, there is plenty of room down both sides of the house, giving you extra scope and a land size of 754m2 approx. When the vendors had the garage and carport built they had them made high enough to accommodate a boat or small caravan and long enough so there is still room to use the workbench when a car is parked in the garage. Light and power is connected. A large separate shed for storage is located at the side of the house plus a smaller tool shed at the rear of the property. Irrigation and a rain water tank for the garden is an additional feature.

Bailey Reserve and playground are a five-minute walk away. The Jacaranda trees in bloom are very pretty. The last word is from the vendor: "We have enjoyed many happy years here and are lucky to have some great neighbours". Over to you buyers.
