BEST BUYING IN MOUNT HAWTHORN - ENTRY LEVEL, A+ LOCATION
This delightful character home instantly appeals to those seeking to a home that is perfect for living in today, with opportunities to renovate and add personal touches tomorrow.
Situated on the Lake end of East Street, and the first house in the street proper, the location offers so much within walking and driving distance.
Super close to public transport...leave the car at home. Easy access to the freeway...a commute to the CBD or other hubs a breeze. Immerse yourself in the vibrant lifestyle of the area with a plethora of cafes, restaurants, bars and hotels to discover and enjoy.
From the tree-lined north-south running street, the house presents beautifully with a limestone facade and neat and tidy yard. The easy-care self-sufficient garden showcases established shrubs and trees which surround a Japanese inspired and water-saving stone area.
At the front of a house is a half-walled limestone paved patio - the perfect place to sit with an early morning coffee and watch the rising sun to the east and wave hello to the friendly neighbours as they pass walking their dogs.
The entrance of the home opens into the polished timber floored lounge/living room. This room is spacious and has a gas heater for those cold mid-year nights, as well as a split system air-conditioner and ceiling fan for hot weather, though the owner reports the house retains heat well in winter, and stays cool in summer.
Leading off this room is the generously sized main bedroom, a bathroom with shower, bath and toilet and the second bedroom. Ceiling fans are in both bedrooms, and the main bedroom also has a split system air-conditioning unit. Storage includes a floor to ceiling linen cupboard next to the bathroom.
Walking through the house along internal limestone feature walls, we reach the renovated and attractive kitchen to the left. The 6 burner gas cooktop, large granite benchtops and u-shaped layout make a highly functional work space for the home cook and entertainer.
From the kitchen it's a step down to the original sleep-out which is currently being used as a dining room. This versatile space could be another bedroom, study, or second living area.
The laundry, which has a bonus shower and separate toilet, completes the internal part of the home.
Stepping outside to the back is a sunken entertaining area covered with a gazebo creating a protected area for relaxing and entertaining.
1 East Street offers a lot of opportunity. It can be lived in as is, it can be fully or partially renovated, or if one was to so wish, knocked over and a new house built in its place. Either way, location, location, location comes into play.
Houses like this do not last long! Call selling agent Jane Cresswell on 0438 850 398 to register your interest. We look forward to hearing from you.
