Ren­o­vate for added value

NT News - Real Estate - - Property -

ere is an op­por­tu­nity for the next lucky fam­ily to ob­tain a fam­ily home in a prime lo­ca­tion, walk­ing dis­tance to schools within the at­trac­tive sub­urb of Leanyer.

This solid home has had only one owner and copes ad­mirably with fam­ily lifestyle, hav­ing had a fam­ily grow up and chil­dren move on over a span of over 30 years.

Well- po­si­tioned on an 800sq m block, this home has plenty of scope in the yard.

Ad­mit­tedly the house is show­ing its age, but it has a de­cent floor­plan.

The de­sign of this house has the ben­e­fit of two side ve­ran­das that add ex­tra un­der­cover liv­ing space.

The res­i­dence is a renovator’s de­light — a ba­sic work­ing can­vas that could be im-

Hproved eas­ily with the ad­di­tion of mod­ern colours. It would be up to the buyer how much they would like to mod­ernise and re­vamp and, even with only a lick of paint, the house would be trans­formed to­tally.

In­side you walk into a fab­u­lous large open- plan liv­ing room, tiled in its era and with high ceil­ings.

There is a sep­a­rate gal­ley kitchen that is decked out with sur­round­ing benches and plenty of stor­age space.

There is scope to up­grade if so re­quired, but works per­fectly as is.

Bed­rooms are lo­cated down the hall­way and all of them are of de­cent pro­por­tion with built in wardrobes and big win­dows.

You have the ben­e­fit of out­door shut­ters that block out the heat and de­flect the heat from di­rect sun­light.

Two of the rooms are also air­con­di­tioned for com­fort.

The main bath­room is very spa­cious with a sep­a­rate shower re­cess and a large bath. This area also would al­low for wheel­chair ac­cess.

The laun­dry is an­other large room where the handy iron­ing board is at­tached to the wall — so you can pull it out when re­quired but it re­mains out of the way oth­er­wise

The house is solid and cool and has plenty of po­ten­tial to cre­ate a new look as the next owner re­quires.

Out­side there is plenty of room to put a larger shed and re­lo­cate or re­move the old one.

The kids and pets will all love the space.

There is high se­cure fencing and it is def­i­nitely a fam­i­ly­ori­en­tated neigh­bour­hood.

You are so close to a va­ri­ety of schools, transport, shop­ping cen­tres, wa­ter parks and the list goes on.

So at this price you are en­ter­ing one of the more en­vi­able sub­urbs which is ide­ally po­si­tioned and al­ways with a great growth in re­turn.

You may like to buy it and just add a coat of paint and rent it out or you could live in and do the prop­erty up as you go, or be in for the big over­haul. What­ever de­ci­sion will work in this ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion.
