Large block of opportunity
Just across the road from Victoria Park Lake is this large home, close to shops, schools and a short walk from Shepparton’s central business district, with plenty of space for a family to grow or play. The four-bedroom home has been owned by the same family since the 1970s and has been immaculately cared for. Modifications in the past 10 years include a new kitchen and carpet and the addition of modern comforts including split-system airconditioners. However, the home’s original charm has been retained with original timber windows with leadlight inserts, high ceilings, beautiful cornice, picture rails and wood-panel walls. The traditional kitchen overlooks established gardens and has been brought up to speed with a gas cooktop, electric oven and dishwasher, with space for an island bench, table or butcher’s block, and split-system airconditioning. A formal dining space with garden views leads to a sitting room with storage which could accommodate a home office or craft room. The large main living area overlooks Wyndham St, with views of any sporting events at Victoria Park Lake, and has a gas heater with mantle and a split-system airconditioner. The four spacious bedrooms are bathed in natural light, have built-in robes and share the colourful bathroom with vanity, toilet, shower and bath. A small study could be utilised as a fifth bedroom or as a play room for children, and has backyard access and a small porch. The laundry is accessed through a back rumpus room and has plenty of cupboard space, a double basin and room for a washing machine, dryer, and ironing board. The house has access to Wyndham St and Lake St, with a drive-through double carport from both sides (remote controlled from the Lake St end). The large back and front yards are separately secured, and the established gardens are a green thumb’s dream, with a patio area perfect for entertaining, a basketball ring and cement area and space to add a pool, pergola or fire pit and pizza oven.
