VIEWS YOU CAN AFFORD
10 Stanley Street
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
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.
An ideal purchase for first homebuyers or investors looking to add value, this property is well located for town, schools, sports and a short drive to the beach or fishing jetty.
