LIVING IN THE 70s NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD House - Property ID: 588682
Built in the 1970s, this solid, double brick and tile 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home unit is definitely retro but boy, has it got potential for an affordable transformation. The location alone, just a short stroll to the CBD & local schools, and minutes to the beach, is worth bottling.
Set at the very back of a neat complex of just eight units, this one enjoys a prime position with a nice grassed front yard and established gardens. The back of the unit also has a spacious paved area with garden shed and potential for more. There are not just two open parking bays designated for the unit, but also a semi-enclosed garage, which currently doubles as an alfresco area, which could easily be fully enclosed to extend the existing living space.
The design of the unit really takes advantage of its warm, north-facing aspect with the pleasant open plan living and dining area, with reverse cycle air conditioning, overlooking the gardens. The master bedroom left off the living area also has a sunny, private outlook and fantastic built in robes.
Separate to the living space is what is really a far larger kitchen than you might expect to find in units of this era. With all the fantastic, affordable flat pack kitchen products now available, this workspace could be totally transformed in an instant. There is even room for an island bench. Even as is, this kitchen is roomy and functional with ample storage and a modern split-level gas stove.
Beyond the kitchen is a combined laundry and bathroom, which again is packed with possibilities. A passage off this area flows to the bedrooms, separate toilet and access back to the living room.
This property is ideal of those after a first home, singles pad, retirement option or easy care investment.
