Whether you’re looking for an affordable home to live in or rent out, or fancy getting your teeth into a moneymaking project, you’ll find plenty of scope in this Mt Melville charmer to achieve your aims.
Occupying an elevated site of 700sqm on the north-east side of the hill, the home enjoys a sunny aspect and takes in a far-reaching outlook to the Porongurups and around to Gull Rock and Middleton Bay – with glimpses of the water from some rooms.
Polished jarrah floorboards, decorative cornices, original doors and timber windows in much of the home proudly show off its 1950s character. Some renovation has been carried out in keeping with the style of the building and parts of the home have been restumped.
Modernisation of the kitchen and bathroom would pay dividends, though the place is clean and functional in its present condition.
The lounge at the front is a welcoming room with an open fireplace and built-in timber cabinetry. Next to this is the country-style kitchen, a sizeable space with gas cooking, room for an island bench and an adjoining dining area.
Enhancing the living spaces is a paved patio at the back door, positioned to take in the coastal view.
Two of the bedrooms are doubles and the third is a good-sized single reached via a rear utility room, which also has access to the laundry, toilet and shower room.
There’s level parking on the long driveway, and gates at the side lead to the fenced back yard, where there’s ample space for parking the caravan or trailer, vegetable beds and a lawn for family playtime.
Another major drawcard for this property is its proximity to town, schools and shops.
It’s within walking distance of York Street and a two-minute drive to the major supermarkets and shopping centres. Not only that, it’s in a no-through-road, so it’s quiet and peaceful, with no passing traffic.
A delightful cottage in sound condition, with abundant period features and potential for a project to capitalise on, this property is sure to be snapped up by a savvy buyer.
