Bright, updated home with character - in a superb RZ2 location, close to the Dickson centre!

In a peaceful street, only a short walk from the Dickson shopping precinct, this thoughtfully extended and updated family home offers separate living areas and a segregated master bedroom, all with a north orientation. Sheltered by established gardens, the appealing façade gives away little of the size of the home.

The entry opens into the light filled dining and family room, which retains its mid-century character in the brick pillar of an old fireplace and the large, timber framed, corner windows which maximise the fabulous north aspect. These are furnished with Roman blinds, while fresh white decor and attractive easy care flooring extend throughout the home.

A reverse cycle air conditioner, as well as ducted gas heating, ensure comfort. The roomy dining area flows into the modern galley kitchen, featuring white stone benchtops, a stainless steel oven with gas cooktop, an AEG stainless steel dishwasher, two pantries and many cupboards.

From the kitchen, the well designed extension maintains the flow of living areas into a sunken lounge, which features high ceilings with LED downlights and fan, a slow combustion fireplace and stylish French doors, opening onto entertaining area.

The lounge leads to the peaceful master bedroom, offering a built-in robe and ensuite, ceiling fan and full length windows furnished with timber blinds, taking advantage of the north aspect. On the opposite side of the home, the three other spacious bedrooms are all fitted with built-in robes. Presented in excellent condition, the main bathroom features a bath and separate w/c.

Under the shelter of a shade sail, the paved entertaining area enjoys a private outlook over the attractive garden and a mature white rhododendron, all protected by a tall deciduous tree. Shrubs enclose the garden and there is plenty of room to enjoy on this block of 700 m2. The garage offers loads of storage there is a lock up workshop/store at the rear.

From this peaceful, friendly neighbourhood it is just steps to all the shops and restaurants of the vibrant Dickson centre, as well as the swimming pool. A wide choice of sought-after primary, secondary schools and colleges are all within walking distance. A network of bike paths, as well as light rail ensure a smooth trip into the City centre.

Ready to move into and enjoy, this inviting home offers space and a superb inner north location.
