About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2018.

Occupying a desirable 422m² corner allotment, this gorgeous three bedroom Art Deco home has been brought up to date with thoughtful renovations and will appeal to younger buyers starting out, retirees looking to downscale, and smart investors looking for an 'easy to rent' acquisition for their real estate portfolio.

Polished timber floorboards lead you through the home, complemented by soft neutral tones that will harmonize effortlessly with any furnishings the lucky buyer should choose to add.

A generous entrance hallway provides access to an amply sized main bedroom complete with ceiling fan and built-in robes. Wander further and you will discover the second bedroom and a fully renovated main bathroom complete with vanity, semi-frameless shower, downlighting, heat lamps and toilet.

Turning left from the entrance leads you into a generous open plan living space. The lounge offers combustion heating and LG split reverse cycle air-conditioning along with views and sliding door access to a serene private garden at the front of the home replete with timber decking for the warmer months.

The lounge area seamlessly flows into a wonderfully sized dining and kitchen space that should easily accommodate larger dining settings. While the updated kitchen offers all you would expect of a modern kitchen; downlighting, stainless Euro appliances including rangehood, oven and dishwasher while the character of the home is preserved by the use of attractive country style cabinetry and plantation shutters.

The rear section of the home, (often overlooked in many renovations) has received equal attention to the rest of the home. A completely renovated laundry area now offers additional shower and toilet facilities, a real bonus for a home of this era. The surprises continue in this area with a third bedroom and superb sunroom offering a northern aspect that captures plenty of natural light and would be the perfect spot to unwind with a book. A second split system air conditioner moderates temperature to the rear of the home and easy access can be had to a valuable second outdoor entertaining space beneath a shade covered pergola.

Solar power generation is also on hand, keeping the power bills in check, while springtime colours already abound in exquisite gardens that are deceptively low maintenance, providing the perfect backdrop to both the driveway and the entertaining spaces. The security conscious will love that gates secure the property from the street, with the meandering driveway leading to a single carport for undercover vehicle storage and ample space for additional vehicles on the drive behind the gates. Garden sheds are situated in the front and rear of the home, so there is no reason to fret about outdoor storage facilities.

2.8m ceilings throughout the home offer an air of spaciousness and the thoughtful improvements carried out by the current owner means there will be precious little for the lucky buyer to do except put their feet up and enjoy.
