A con­ve­nient spot to park

The lo­ca­tion was one of the draw­cards for ren­o­vat­ing a three-bed­room house in Lock­leys, writes Lach­lan Pryor.

LO­CA­TION and po­ten­tial were the driv­ing forces for the pur­chase of a three-bed­room house at Lock­leys seven years ago. ‘‘We like the lo­ca­tion and con­ve­nience. The home has prox­im­ity to the beach and the city,’’ the ven­dor says. ‘‘With the view to hav­ing a fam­ily, we liked what was in the sur­round­ing area, with two parks in our street – one with a play­ground and the other be­ing Lin­ear Park, where the kids can see the ducks along the Tor­rens.’’

The ven­dor says they saw po­ten­tial in the house and ren­o­vated it from scratch.

‘‘Every­thing in there is brand new. The shell is the same but we’ve done every­thing from the kitchen to bath­room, plumb­ing and wiring,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘I don’t think you could spend a sin­gle cent more on the place.’’

The house has a for­mal din­ing, for­mal liv­ing and a kitchen with Smeg ap­pli­ances and Cae­sars­tone bench­tops.

‘‘The three bed­rooms sit on the other side of the home so there is a dis­tinc­tion from the liv­ing rooms,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘At the rear of the home we have a ded­i­cated store­room and over­sized laun­dry, which is a great util­ity (rrom).

‘‘The amount of stor­age in the home is ex­cep­tional, with the ded­i­cated store­room, the mas­ter (bed­room) with his and hers built-in, and built-in robes in bed­room three.’’

The ven­dor says they spared no ex­pense when ren­o­vat­ing.

‘‘We didn’t want to skimp on any­thing in the prop­erty. We re­fur­bished with a view to en­joy­ing the life­style,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘The home would def­i­nitely fit some­one who ap­pre­ci­ates qual­ity in terms of fix­tures and fit­tings. Every­thing is ab­so­lutely top-grade.’’

The ven­dor says the house, which fea­tures orig­i­nal baltic pine pol­ished floor­boards, would suit a range of buy­ers.

‘‘It would suit a young pro­fes­sional cou­ple, a young cou­ple with young kids or peo­ple at the other end of the scale who are down­siz­ing,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘It would also be great for a sin­gle par­ent with chil­dren, who wants a low-main­te­nance and lowfuss life­style.’’
