One owner since 1962, extended, massive bedrooms, renovations, backing reserve   

With nearly all the hard work done, the effort the seller has invested is all to your benefit. Big ticket items such as the kitchen and large ensuite are brand new as they needed renovation. The bathroom is still in good condition having been renovated in the 1990's, all that's left for the new buyer is to choose their own floor coverings, window treatments and move in. I can easily assist in enabling quotes for the new buyer so any works can be completed as soon as you settle without delay, easy!

The extension was done in 1972 to cater to their growing family which has resulted in a super spacious lounge/dining room (7.3x4m) and family/meals room (4.4mx2.8m) with a total 149m2 of living. The 3 main bedrooms are now MASSIVEthanks to the extension too with bedroom one 4x4.3m, bedroom two 4x3.7m and bedroom three 4x3.6m! Bedroom 4 is still large with a rectangular 4.3x2.5m design. This home has all the core 'needs' plus many of the 'wants' a growing family could seek.

Ideal for those who seeking a quiet convenient position, it's <650m to playgrounds, primary school, shops and bus stops. For the kids and pets, an enclosed grassed backyard and quiet street is great for safety and minimal traffic and at your back fence is reserve land where everyone can stretch their legs.
