ORIGINAL FEATURES IN 1940'S CHARMER
104 David Street
SPENCER PARK, WA 6330
Living close to town in a charming cottage on a big block with views of the city – and for under $300,000 – sounds like wishful thinking.
But here it is – proof you can have your cake and eat it, too!
If you’re in the market for a comfortable character home with the opportunity to add value to your acquisition, look no further. This property has so many options for now and into the future.
The block size of 911sqm makes it suitable for subdivision, with the appropriate local authority permissions. The home is conveniently sited near the front of the block, so there’s space for a second residence at the rear.
You could live in the cottage while building a second home, then live in either one and rent out or sell the other.
You could rent it out now and develop it later.
Or you could just add your own touches to the cottage and enjoy the lifestyle, as well as the freedom the big block offers for play, parking or sheds.
The lovely cottage still displays features dating back to its 1940s origins – jarrah floorboards in the living rooms and hallway, high ceilings and a wide front veranda.
Some renovation has been done to the place over the years and it is very comfortable, though a little more TLC would pay dividends.
At the front is the lounge, with the rich jarrah floorboards, timber half-wall panelling, a wood fire and expansive views to Mt Clarence and Mt Melville – an outlook shared by the pleasant kitchen and meals area next door.
The main bedroom is a big double with a built-in robe, and the second bedroom at the rear is also a double.
In addition, there’s a generous room with its own direct access from outside. This could be used as a games room, hobby room, third bedroom or teens’ pad.
The bathroom is a good-sized room with a shower and vanity, and the toilet is off the laundry.
New carpet in the bedrooms and good kitchen cabinetry help to set off this well-presented home.
A driveway at the side of the house leads to a garage at the back, and there are several more off-road parking spaces.
Most of the neat block is in lawn, with a few mature native trees at the rear boundary for character and shelter, and the children could play safely in the fully fenced back yard.
Schools, shops, sports grounds and the city are all within walking distance – or at most a five-minute drive away – so can’t get much more central than this.
This real estate will have wide appeal with singles, couples, families and rental investors, so to really appreciate the many prospects it offers, arrange a viewing with Jeremy Stewart.
