CHARACTER COTTAGE SITTING PRETTY
38 Townsend Street
Lockyer, WA 6330
All the lovely features that give mid-century homes such desirable character are here in this delightful 1950s cottage.
Well maintained and neatly presented throughout, this charmer will have wide appeal, particularly with homebuyers wanting a property with a big block and a shed without breaking the bank to get it.
Built of weatherboard and tile, the home boasts the original polished jarrah floorboards, timber windows, high ceilings and ornate cornices in some rooms.
And inside, it’s bigger than it appears from the street.
At the front, the lounge is a cosy, inviting room with a corner window and a gas bayonet for a heater. This comfy room is open to the dining area and the nice bright kitchen, with a gas cooker and good cabinetry.
An extension at the rear houses one of the three double bedrooms, the laundry and the toilet. The bathroom, with bath, shower and vanity, is in the wing of the home where the other two bedrooms are located.
An instant gas hot water system (running off reticulated gas) and door security screens are additional benefits.
There’s a deck at the front door for sitting out, and plenty of space for relaxing in the garden, which is a treat for those who enjoy the great outdoors.
Mostly in lawn, this is a terrific block of 898 sqm, with an enclosed back yard for kids to play and a few native trees. It’s easy care, and offers plenty of scope for keen gardeners to do their own thing.
Another major drawcard is the good-sized garage with a storage shed at the rear, complementing the near new carport at the front. There’s plenty more parking on the concrete driveway for guest vehicles.
For families, being around the corner from a very good primary school is a real bonus – no more school runs!
The property is in a quiet street among good neighbours, about six minutes’ drive from town and a bike-ride from high schools and TAFE.
A neat-as-a-pin property such as this will delight buyers on a budget – whether owner-occupiers or investors – and it’s all done up ready to enjoy.
