Here’s a smart value-adder if ever you saw one!

This solid, sparkling clean older home with potential for modernisation is a real find with stacks of advantages and a price to suit most budgets.

It also sits on a fabulous, fully serviced block of 909sqm, with a fenced back yard and an expanse of lawn for children and pets to play.

Built in the 1970s, the brick and tile home still has original tiling and cabinetry, but the great condition of these just shows how well it has been loved and looked after over the years.

You wouldn’t need to make structural alterations to bring it up to date because the home has well-proportioned rooms and a practical layout. But installing a new bathroom and kitchen and freshening up the décor would pay dividends for a modest further investment.

It would also make an excellent rental.

At the front is a big, air-conditioned lounge with a picture window to let in plenty of light. This flows through to the dining area and the kitchen, with a breakfast bar and window overlooking the back garden.

Three bedrooms, all with built-in robes, the bathroom, with separate shower and bath, separate toilet and laundry are at the other end of the house.

The garage under the main roof has drive-through access to a second garage-workshop, with power and storage space, in the back yard.

A rainwater tank, security screens and lights and its quiet location at a no-through-road end of the street among well-spaced homes are other advantages.

If you’re handy with the tools, you could move in and do up the place as you go because it’s very livable just as it is.

All family amenities – schools, shops, medical facilities, sports grounds and even the beach – are within a few minutes’ walking, cycling or driving distance.

Individuals and couples will have all their needs met at this lovely brick and tile home, near the edge of the complex in Pioneer Road and joined to only one other.

At the front is a carport with a second parking space at the side, and further space for visitors’ cars behind.

But it’s through the front door that the surprises start.

First, there’s the sunny, airy open living area, which is bigger than you might expect for a unit. This carpeted, air-conditioned space comprises the lounge and dining area, with the attractive kitchen in one corner.

The next revelation is the back yard, reached through glass doors from the dining room. This fenced area, paved for low maintenance, has an undercover patio big enough for enjoying a glass of white or a cuppa with friends while overlooking the rose garden. There is also access to a brick storeroom under the main roof of the building from the patio area.

Then there are the three double bedrooms – two with built-in robes – providing options for when family come to stay, as well as the bathroom with bath, shower and vanity and the separate toilet reached off the laundry.

Décor is from a neutral palette to suit any style of furnishing and all floor coverings and window treatments are in good condition. It’s clear this has been a well-loved home with little wear and lots of care.

For those without transport, the North Road Shopping Centre is within easy walking distance, and active types could get their daily workout at the gym just around the corner.

Town is a five-minute drive away and medical facilities and sports fields are close by.

For convenience, peace of mind and price, you would be hard pushed indeed to beat this attractive home.

If you think your budget won’t run to a home with a lovely view, this charmer will make you think again.

From the front sunroom and main bedroom, it takes in a wonderful outlook to the Porongurups and from the side bedrooms and back garden, the view is over the sports grounds as far as Gull Rock National Park and Mt Clarence.

Built in the 1950s, the home occupies an elevated 623sqm block in a no-through-road on the side of Mount Melville, but there are no steep slopes here – there’s a driveway leading to a garage on one side of the house, with a parking space in front, and a second driveway on the other side, with off-road parking for two more vehicles.

Of weatherboard and tile construction, this is a comfortable character home with high ceilings and original timber boards under the flooring.

Entry is through the sunroom and then into the lounge, a good-sized room with a built-in fireplace.

Through the lounge is a hallway to the three main bedrooms, all of which are double sized.

New owners will probably give it a spruce-up, modernising the combined kitchen and dining area and perhaps the bathroom. However, this is an attractive home with good structure and those views would make a modest further investment well worthwhile.

An addition to the original house is a utility area along the rear, housing the shower room and toilet at one end, the laundry and a handy office, sitting room or playroom.

A real delight is the fully fenced back garden, which is mostly in neatly trimmed lawns with flower beds and enough space for growing veggies and herbs. There’s also a garden shed for the mower and tools.

Sitting on the back patio overlooking the garden and taking in the view would surely be a favourite after-work unwinder with a beverage in hand.

This overlooks the fenced back yard, mostly in lawn with a few trees – including an apricot – and a terrific 5m x 3m garden shed.

At the front, there’s a big lawn with trees affording the home a degree of privacy, and a carport at the side of the house.

Living areas are warm and inviting. In addition to a generous home theatre, there’s a sunny open living room comprising the family room and dining area overlooked by the superb kitchen. When guests drop in, the undercover alfresco area in the fenced back yard is the perfect place to entertain them.
With plenty of sleek cabinetry, a wide under-bench oven and five-burner stove, the kitchen also has an adjoining scullery with a sink and space for a dishwasher as well as cabinetry to hide the clutter. On the opposite side is a terrific walk-in pantry or store room.
Two of the bedrooms are king-sized with walk-in robes and ensuite bathrooms. One of these is the luxurious master suite; the other would be an ideal private retreat for overnight guests or another option could be for the aging parents.
Two family bedrooms, both with built-in robes, are at the rear along with the third bathroom and the separate toilet.
The double garage has direct access to the wide entrance hall, where timber-look flooring flows into the main living room and high-traffic areas. Plush carpet is fitted in all the bedrooms and the theatre.
Sitting amid manicured, landscaped gardens with lush lawns with reticulated garden beds at the rear, the home is ready to move into. There is even potential for side access and a shed with some minor adjustments to the landscaping.

An idyllic rural lifestyle awaits the astute buyers of this delightful property near the foot of the Porongurup Ranges.

The 1950s cottage displays a magnetic charm and the 8098sqm block it occupies is perfect if you hanker to run a couple of sheep, keep chooks, grow veggies and be surrounded by stunning natural bush with an abundance of birdlife and kangaroos on your doorstep.

It’s in the heart of the Porongurup settlement, a major tourist destination for visitors to the south of the state for the wines, wildflowers, walks and amazing scenery.

You could have all this every day, plus you’d live within 30 minutes’ commuting distance of Albany and 20 minutes from Mt Barker.

With a homely ambience and delightful original features, the home is set back off the road, sheltered by mature gums and peppermints at the front and stands of tall natives and bushland at the rear.

Jarrah floorboards are in most rooms, and there’s a terrific Metters stove in the kitchen, though for convenience, there’s a gas stove as well.

The main living area is an open lounge and dining space with a wood fire positioned to heat the entire home, and the side veranda would be great for summer barbecues.

Three of the bedrooms are double sized and the fourth, off one of these rooms, would make an ideal nursery, dressing room or private office.

In the bathroom are the bath, shower and basin, and the toilet is separate, off the laundry.

An addition to the original home is an enclosed room along the back, housing the laundry at one end, an office at the other and a handy central utility area for storage, a playroom or hobby room.

The outdoors is a real treat. There’s an open-fronted shed for stock shelter and storage for the ride-on mower, a double garage-workshop or machinery shed and a chook run. A big rainwater tank supplies enough for the house and stock.

Most of the block is in grass with some established fruit trees, and fencing is good. Being just over two acres, it is big enough for planting veggies – and for simply enjoying the relaxing, enviable life it promises in one of the most picturesque areas of the Great Southern.

At this price, it’s definitely worth a close look for those considering a move to the country.
