NEAT CHARACTER HOME JUST NEEDS SOME TLC AND COSMETIC IMPROVEMENTS
Located just 15 minutes’ walk to the centre of the city, this post-war, semi-detached brick home is also walking distance to primary and secondary schools, La Trobe University and Strath Village, and enjoys a bus stop just a few doors away. A wide driveway ensures there is good off-street parking, and the neat front garden and pretty façade provide a lovely feel.
Steps lead up to the front porch and the main entry opens directly into a good-sized lounge. The original brick fireplace is not in use but still in place, and other character features such as picture railing, high ceilings and sash windows offer charming detail. From the lounge, a hallway is open at one end to the kitchen. A contemporary fit out includes good storage and modern appliances.
The three generously proportioned bedrooms all open off the hallway, with sash windows in all rooms providing ample natural light. Two of the three bedrooms feature built-in robes that run across one wall. Also off this hall is a fully refurbished family bathroom.
A mudroom off the kitchen leads to a laundry and additional toilet. Outside is a charming established garden with a sunny paved courtyard, garden beds and small lawn area. A side gate offers secure access to the yard, and large trees provide year-round protection from the elements.
Additional features include:
Ducted refrigerated cooling and gas heating
Modern kitchen appliances including oven and four-burner gas cooktop
Heritage features including floorboards, picture railing and sash windows
Access from side of home to rear yard
Currently renting to quality tenants at $270 per week, this property is a fantastic investment opportunity, and with some cosmetic improvements could pave the way to a greater rental return. Given its practical, central locale and easy proximity to university, this is ideal for a buyer seeking a property that will always be easy to find residents for. First home buyers would also appreciate the great possibility, great position and great price.
