Buy your first home or investment property. Those with imagination will see the potential this duplex home has and understand where there is a little bit of work, there is an opportunity.
This home is in a prime location, very close to the vibrant Dickson shopping centre with its restaurants, swimming pool and many amenities. In addition, all ages and stages of public and private education are nearby. North Ainslie Primary School is opposite the home, and Dickson College is a short walk away. Daramalan College and Emmaus Christian School are close by.
With great bones, the rooms are generously proportioned and light spills into every room. There is an open living and dining area downstairs that opens to the rear veranda and garden. An updated kitchen, under-stair storeroom, separate powder room and spacious laundry with external access completes the downstairs. Storage options are plentiful.
Upstairs, there's the bathroom, more storage cupboards and three bedrooms, all with built-in robes. The main bedroom has a small veranda, perfect for watching the world go by while you drink your morning cuppa.
The backyard will be easy to maintain as-is or create your own green haven. Other similar homes in the area have utilised the space to build off-street garaging or carport parking - a real opportunity for the lucky buyer to value-add by doing the same.
The property is a blank palette, ready to be refreshed as you wish. Enjoy living in your new home or rent it out and reap the returns while you draw up plans for the renovation you have in mind.
Opportunity really does knock here. Be sure to inspect.
