In a quiet cul-de-sac on the slopes of Mt Melville, this appealing 1960s home enjoys a north-easterly aspect and takes in expansive views from the Stirlings and Porongurups around to the coastal hills of Gull Rock National Park.
Though it would benefit from renovation to the kitchen and bathroom, it is in good, clean condition and of sound construction, so it could work just as it is for rental investors or for owner-occupiers to do up as they live in it.
Any renovation project, though, would surely retain the beautiful, polished jarrah floors throughout most of the home.
Designed to exploit the outlook, the home is mostly on the first floor, while a sizeable games room – with water and power connected – takes up a good proportion of the undercroft.
Up steps at the side is the main entrance, which opens onto the generous lounge with a wood fire and two windows taking in the view.
This flows through to the dining area, where French doors open onto an elevated front deck, a prime spot for summer entertaining or brunches.
A more sheltered alternative for windy days is the undercover patio at the back, overlooking the fenced yard, which has two terraced areas of lawn with some trees for shade – perfect for children and pets.
Back inside, the kitchen has gas cooking and next to this is a sunroom for another living option.
The three bedrooms are off a hallway at the back. These are all big doubles and two have built-in robes. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and vanity and the toilet is separate, off the adjacent laundry.
There’s a carport at the front and further off-road parking on the 582sqm block.
Adding to the attraction for a wide scope of buyers is this property’s proximity to the city and all amenities.
It’s about 2km to the CBD and a five-minute drive to schools, sports and medical facilities.
With a charm and character of yesteryear and potential for straightforward transformation into a sensational home, this property presents a fine opportunity for those looking for an alternative to run-of-the-mill homes.
