There’s ev­ery­thing to love about this charm­ing home on a 1103sqm cor­ner block in Gled­how.

The prop­erty is as neat as a pin in­side and out, and has been well main­tained and mod­ernised with­out sac­ri­fic­ing its out­stand­ing 1950s fea­tures.

Orig­i­nal jar­rah floors through­out, high ceil­ings and tim­ber win­dow frames add to its ap­peal, and the home is beau­ti­fully sunny and bright in­side.

It is com­fort­able, im­mac­u­lately clean and in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion — en­tirely prac­ti­cal for modern fam­ily liv­ing.

At the front is the gen­er­ous lounge with a wood fire in a fea­ture fire­place and an im­pres­sive lead­light door sep­a­rat­ing it from the big kitchen/din­ing room at the rear.

With at­trac­tive cab­i­netry, gas cook­ing and space for a fam­ily-sized din­ing ta­ble, this is a light, well-ap­pointed room.

Win­dows, a sky­light and French doors at the back make this a pleas­ant room for meals, though fam­ily mem­bers might want to spill out onto the cov­ered, paved pa­tio for lazy week­end brunches or re­lax­ing bar­be­cues.

The main bed­room is a king-sized room, and the other two are a good queen and dou­ble size, while the sparkling white bath­room nearby con­tains a bath, shower, van­ity and toi­let.

Air-con­di­tion­ing in the din­ing area, neu­tral decor and prac­ti­cal win­dow blinds also fea­ture

Built of fi­bro and tile, the house sits amid well-tended lawns with a few gar­den beds and na­tive trees.

A ve­randa shel­ters the front door and makes a pleas­ant out­door seat­ing area.

There’s a car­port at the side of the house and plenty of off-road space for park­ing and turn­ing ve­hi­cles. There’s also a very handy 6m x 6m shed in the back yard, which is mostly in lawn and fully fenced.

Gled­how’s big blocks and leafy streets give it a semi-ru­ral feel although it is within easy reach of schools, TAFE, su­per­mar­kets and Al­bany’s town cen­tre.

This Bal­ston Road prop­erty is cur­rently leased at $320 a week.
