Buy­ers are fac­ing a fairer play­ing field in the new year but not many prop­er­ties present a play­ing field like the back­yard of this Mt Druitt home. Tim McIn­tyre re­ports

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

IN A real es­tate mar­ket that has been boom­ing for sev­eral years, po­ten­tial is the key to a great sale.

While block sizes have been shrink­ing and back yards be­com­ing rarer in many ar­eas of Syd­ney, savvy buy­ers are hav­ing their needs met in Mt Druitt.

For the early bird, this house has plenty go­ing for it.

Im­pres­sive from top to bot­tom, the brick ve­neer res­i­dence is set on a huge block of about 778sq m with side ac­cess, mak­ing it ideal for tradies.

That ex­tra space can also be put to use to add value or com­fort in the form of a granny flat (sub­ject to coun­cil ap­proval), or can sim­ply be en­joyed the old-fash­ioned way as a top notch play­ing arena for the kids.

For those look­ing to move in to a fin­ished prod­uct and do no more, the home has re­cently been com­pre­hen­sively ren­o­vated.

The bath­room is a great ex­am­ple, with high-end fin­ishes and floor-to-ceil­ing tiles, while the Tas­ma­nian oak kitchen has stone bench tops, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and a break­fast bar.

The for­mal lounge area of­fers split sys­tem air-con­di­tion­ing, new floor­boards and down lights, while the three bed­rooms each have built-in robes and new floor­ing.

A rum­pus room fea­tures its own elec­tric fire­place and a large sin­gle car lockup garage has ex­ter­nal laun­dry and se­cond toi­let.

Lo­ca­tion is also a key fea­ture for this home, which is walk­ing dis­tance to lo­cal parks and Coly­ton Pub­lic School.

The West­field shop­ping cen­tre and Mt Druitt train sta­tion are each just 3km away.
