In a peaceful enclave, on a large level fully-fenced block lies this light and airy residence. The property is surrounded by greenery and offers incredible value for a first-time buyer seeking to step on to the property ladder. Why waste good money renting when you can put yourself in this prime piece of real estate so close to major facilities?
This three-bedroom, one-bathroom home boasts one carport and one undercroft lock-up garage and requires only minimal care for its luscious gardens. The back garden includes an undercover patio perfect for Sunday brunches or weekend barbecues and enjoys an abundance of bird life with their accompanying birdsong.
The house opens up to the living room with mixed hardwood polished floors that run throughout the property, a ceiling fan and security on the windows, which have sliding frames, ensuring a cross-breeze to cool the residence on the hottest of days. The master bedroom overlooks the greenery at the front and also has its own ceiling fan and built-ins. With two sets of built-ins, the spacious second bedroom has space for a study area, ensuring privacy and separation from the rest of the family, if desired. Bedroom 3 is also a generously apportioned double bedroom with office space, too.
The family bathroom has been renovated with new sparkling white fittings and tiles, reflecting a hygienic elegance and including a large full-sized bath. The kitchen has a U-shaped benchtop which allows the master chef to entertain guests at the dining table while creating signature dishes and the kitchen/diner has been freshly painted in keeping with the high standards of neatness and tidiness throughout the property. The kitchen cabinetry has been recently repainted in pure white and contains handy built-in plate racks.
Added to this, the residence lies on 663 sq.m. of land with copious storage space underneath the house. If you’re looking for a private, secluded block with the family in mind, then look no further.
