A GREAT PLACE WITHIN YOUR GRASP
13 Whidby Street
Orana, WA 6330
Here’s brilliant value buying for first home buyers or families on a budget or investors on the lookout for a solid rental – it’s a sizeable mid-1970s property in a quiet street about seven minutes’ drive from the City.
You get a lot of property for your money here – a three-bedroom home, a one-bedroom freestanding studio and a double garage-workshop with a double carport.
All this is on a 901sqm block with fenced front and back yards.
From the street, the neatly trimmed lawns and well-tended garden beds give an indication of the calibre of the inside, which is lovely and clean throughout.
While the kitchen and bathroom are a tad dated – though certainly serviceable – it wouldn’t take much to bring them bang up to date. So picking up this substantial property in an affordable price bracket would set new buyers off to a fine start, and any work they chose to do could easily be carried out while living there.
There’s a comfy lounge with a wood fire at the front and a meals area adjoining the kitchen, which has timber cabinetry and a good gas cooker. Glass doors from the meals area open onto a terrific sheltered, paved patio, ideal for family parties and barbies all year round.
The main bedroom at the front is a queen and the other two are good-sized singles/doubles, perfect kids’ rooms with space for desks, and for the parents, there’s an office or study off the lounge. The bedrooms, lounge and study are all fitted with good carpet.
The bathroom has a bath, shower and vanity, the toilet is separate and the laundry is at the back door.
At the rear of the block sits the impressive studio. This insulated space consists of one big, open room with kitchen facilities on one side and a combined shower room, toilet and laundry.
A driveway leads past the house to the big garage-workshop. This is well set up with a wood fire, a toilet, lighting and workbenches with power, and space for two vehicles in addition to a two-bay carport on the front.
A rainwater tank, garden shed and plenty of off-road parking are other advantages.
Its location a short drive or bike ride from schools, TAFE, supermarkets and town make this property even more appealing to buyers recognising value for money.
