THIS renovated two-bedroom, one-bathroom villa in Scarborough will appeal to first-home buyers, investors and downsizers.
“We bought the property in 2010 as a rental and up until putting it on the market recently, it was probably only vacant for about one to two months,” owners John and Lorraine said.
“We think that shows that a lot of people value the great location and quiet complex.”
The newly painted home has a large living space, a new kitchen, a meals area and large bedrooms, including a master with built-in robes.
“We added the airconditioner in 2010 and hadn’t planned on replacing the carpet in the lounge area, but an unattended candle caused some burn marks and so we decided to go with bamboo flooring,” the owners said.
“We think it was a great outcome to an unfortunate accident.
“The front landscaping was done in 2014.”
The bathroom is modern and well-presented and there is a separate toilet and separate laundry.
For outdoor entertaining, there is a choice between two large private courtyards.
“The complex has undergone a much-needed driveway resurfacing in 2014 and now appears to be appealing more to owner/occupiers as more young owners decide to make 13 Alga Street and Scarborough their home,” the owners said.
