BARGAIN BUY ON BIG BLOCK
2 Thistle Street
Bayonet Head, WA 6330
This charming established home on a big block in Bayonet Head could be your new rental earner.
Built of brick and tile, the property is in good order and would fit just as easily as a comfortable home for first-timers or as a retirees’ retreat.
From its elevated corner block of 873sqm, it takes in a lovely outlook over Oyster Harbour and bush reserve towards Mt Clarence, Mt Melville and as far as Torndirrup National Park.
Inside, it is neat and tidy. The kitchen and bathroom have been renovated in recent years and good carpet is fitted in the hallway and bedrooms.
Polished jarrah floorboards, an open fireplace and a bar feature in the lounge, while the adjoining dining room has parquetry flooring.
The lounge is the main living room, complemented by a second cosy sitting room with air conditioning at the back and a lovely undercover patio overlooking the garden.
Like the lounge, all the bedrooms along the front of the home enjoy the beautiful outlook.
The master bedroom is a queen-sized room with air conditioning and his-and-hers built-in robes, and the other two are both doubles, one with a built-in robe.
In the bathroom is a walk-in shower, vanity and toilet, and there’s a guest toilet with handbasin off the laundry.
Just as appealing are the gardens, with enough scope to delight green-thumbed occupants.
The front is mostly in lawn with a blend of water-wise natives and exotic palms for easy maintenance, there’s a selection of rose bushes at the side and the enclosed back yard has lawn, raised vegetable beds and a garden shed.
Parking is no problem either, with a garage under the main roof and a wide driveway for visitors’ cars.
Although some of the tiling and décor could do with a modern touch, this could be done while living in the home, or left as it is for rental purposes.
This house will appeal as much to tenants as owner-occupiers for its location, being close to a good primary school, a shopping centre, liquor and fuel outlets and 10 minutes’ drive to town.
It certainly has scope for adding value without much extra investment or effort, so budget buyers should view it before it’s snapped up.
