ON a lush 1173sq m property – held by the same family since 1973 – is this gorgeous character home, now for sale and waiting for buyers to embrace its potential.
Tucked into a prime spot on the corner of Brockman and Waratah Avenues, any development will no doubt reward buyers or the astute investor handsomely.
There is plenty of room left on the northern boundary of the block, which has right-of-way access via Ringneck Lane as well.
Alternatively, those who appreciate the residence’s charming Inter-war features will find plenty to fall in love with.
The Californian bungalow’s period features have been maintained to a high standard, from the timber battening on the low-pitched gables to the wide limestone piers.
The veranda has two entries, with the primary entrance opening to reveal the formal lounge with gas fireplace and plantation shutters.
This extends into the formal dining room and leads through to the central open-plan meals/kitchen and family area, a bathroom/laundry and a separate toilet.
The bedrooms are all generously proportioned, including the grand master bedroom with built-in robe and Bedroom Two just off the entry.
Bedrooms Three and Four are connected by a joint entry and share a wet room, allowing for the creation of an enormous parents’ retreat with lounge room and ensuite if desired.
A fifth bedroom or study, which can be accessed via the second entry on the veranda, and the central family bathroom complete the flexible accommodation.
Adjacent to the rear of the home and connected by a covered walkway is a special space, current used as a games room, which has large glass windows that welcome in views of the courtyard gardens.
These well-maintained, bore-reticulated grounds are divided into a patio garden and a separate lawn, both with side access to Brockman Avenue.
The house also has a storage area, a garage, a hardstand to fit three more vehicles and evaporative airconditioning.
