Refurbished Home Close To La Trobe University
Positioned on a corner allotment and close to the city centre, schools, University, sports track, walking and cycling paths, bus stops and more is this lovely 1950s, solid brick home. Elevated, and with lovely views across to Quarry Hill, the newly refurbished home retains many of its original, character features including a wide verandah, decorative cornice throughout, 9ft ceilings and generously proportioned rooms.
The grand formal entry includes a double built-in closet and to one side are two good-sized bedrooms – one with a split system, and the other featuring a built-in robe. An additional room off the entry hall could serve as a third bedroom, or as a second living space if preferred. An original brick fireplace, whilst not currently being utilised, is an added feature of this room. Also off the main hallway is a family bathroom.
To the other side of the home is a lovely open plan kitchen and living space. The brand new kitchen provides excellent storage and this room leads into a sunny and bright dining room at the rear of the home. A shower room and laundry, and a separate toilet lead off this space and complete the design.
A glass sliding door opens out to the easy-care rear yard and the sunny paved courtyard is ideal for entertaining. A small lawn area leads around to a door opening into the garage at one side, and on the other side of the property is a private screen of established trees leading down to a gate, which opens out to the large front yard.
Additional features include:
-Split system heating and cooling
-New carpets and freshly painted
-New kitchen featuring modern kitchen appliances including a four-burner gas cooktop and electric oven
-Access from both sides of the property into the rear garden
With a flexible floor plan, a low maintenance yard and positioned in an excellent location close to all amenities, this charming property would make an ideal starter home or a fabulous investment opportunity. Ready to move into, this solid brick build still allows for the buyer to put their own stamp on it and really make it their own.
