Summer Entertaining by the Pool or Demolish & Develop

  • 4 Beds
  • 1 Bath
  • 2 Cars

Quietly located on a corner allotment, this solid brick home offers an opportunity to purchase, reside and enjoy the facilities while planning your future development. Pre-approved plans for subdivision have been put in place by the current owners, leaving only one question, do you move in and enjoy the beautifully maintained home with in-ground pool and extensive shedding or move forward and demolish, sub-divide and reap the financial rewards. Either way, there is no hurry, why not spend a lazy summer entertaining family and friends around the sparkling in-ground pool while you contemplate the future of this valuable corner allotment.

The home offers up to 4 bedrooms (or 3 plus study), bedrooms 1, 2 & 3 have built-in robes, bedrooms 1 & 2 have ceiling fans. A 4th bedroom or study boasts a sliding door to the rear verandah. A huge living room with a bright wrap-around corner window will cater for the whole family, a ceiling fan and a gas heater moderating the temperature.
A combined kitchen and dining also offers a wrap-around corner window, allowing natural light to gently infuse. A functional kitchen design boasts crisp cabinetry, Pura Tap, modern appliances and a raised bar. Down lights overhead provide a crisp ambience.

A full width rear verandah offers an elevated vantage point with views over the swimming pool, rear yard and local neighbourhood. Generous shedding has two 3.9m x 4.0m sheds for general storage and workshop space. A central pool pavillion boasts ceiling fan and caf shade blind, providing a great place for a summer barbeque, overlooking the sparkling pool and sandstone paved surrounds, while enjoying the sounds from the in-built waterproof hifi speaker system.

A generous yard with established trees and lawns, 2 car carport and a rainwater tank complete a tidy residential package, the perfect opportunity to live in style while you plan your dream development.
