Handy­man’s dream

Large block of op­por­tu­nity

Shepparton News - SN Local Real Estate - - PROPERTY OF THE WEEK -

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.
