BARGAIN OF THE YEAR?
26 Shepherd Street
LOWER KING, WA 6330
At this price, this rock-solid home will be snapped up by an astute buyer with an eye for a bargain and a big family to accommodate.
And they’ll get a lot of house for their money – four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living rooms and a separate games room, all in excellent condition and packed with extra features for convenience and comfort.
It’s a double brick and tile home, built in the 1990s on a corner block of 762sqm and taking in a lovely outlook to the hills and the King River in the distance.
Set in attractive gardens of mostly shrubs for minimal maintenance, the home occupies an elevated position and has a paved driveway leading to a double carport with remote-controlled doors.
Inside, it is warm and inviting, and has enough rooms for adults and children to enjoy their chosen activities or just relax in their own space.
A good-sized, air-conditioned lounge at the front has windows on two walls, making this a sunny, comfortable room for welcoming guests or watching TV. This opens onto another living space, which could be used for more formal dining, reading or hobbies.
The adjoining kitchen, generous family room and meals area is the hub of the home, a space for gathering after a long day at work or school and at weekends. A sliding glass door from the family room opens onto a lovely undercover patio, a private area overlooking the back garden and with space for a barbecue and an outdoor table setting.
A dishwasher, pantry, wall oven and plenty of cabinetry ensure the family cook has everything at hand in the centrally located kitchen.
At the front of the home is the master bedroom, with built-in robes and an en suite shower, vanity and toilet. Next to this is another good-sized single room, which shares the lovely outlook and would make an ideal nursery.
The other two bedrooms – both doubles with built-in robes – are at the back, near the family bathroom with bath, shower and vanity, the separate toilet and the big laundry with a double trough, utility cupboard and space for a big freezer and bar fridge.
Another impressive room is in the garden. This is a freestanding Colorbond games room or studio with a gable roof and concrete floor, a versatile building for all kinds of activities.
Other outdoor features include a storage room as part of the main building, a separate garden shed, and double gates at the side providing access to the back yard for parking the dinghy or caravan.
The entire place is clean and beautifully presented and it’s clear to see it has been a well-loved home. New owners would probably want to update the decor, bathroom and kitchen, but this could be done over time, as it is perfectly serviceable as it is.
Appealing to owner-occupiers or rental investors, the home is well built and offers flexibility of use, as well as being within easy reach of the beach and recreation areas.
It’s a short drive to Great Southern Grammar, there’s a shopping centre 3km away, and you could be in the city within 15 minutes of leaving home.
The vendors are keen to sell and will consider all serious offers, so an early inspection is advised.
