Kings Road, with its international grocers, and Alfrieda Street, known for some of the best Vietnamese food around, create an under-the-radar foodie haunt that is the culinary silk road of the west.

All this is moments from 55 Atheldene, a large family-friendly property.

 

55 Atheldene Drive, St Albans, 3021

The facade is brick veneer and benefits from a large front yard, set behind a security fence, so it’s perfect for those with young children.

There is a double carport and entryway which opens up to an L-shaped living room with floorboards and lots of natural light.

Four bedrooms are all carpeted and have built-in robes.

The near-new kitchen is a highlight and has white gloss cabinets and a glass-blue splashback, composite stone benchtops and stainless-steel gas cooktop. It overlooks the meals area, where the floorboards continue. This area can be closed with internal sliding doors dividing this area from the lounge room.

Out the back there is a pergola which could be updated to great effect.

There is storage and running water here, great if you have visions of an outdoor kitchen as the hard work has been done.

This simple, sturdy and well-located house has great bones, wide street frontage and is close to schools and the bus stop.

It’s a five-minute walk from the International Gardens Reserve fenced dog park, a secure space with a dog-friendly water fountain, so you can relax and let your furry friends stretch their legs. There is also children’s play equipment, a handy bonus for young families.

This property is also well located for access to Taylors Road and the Calder Highway.
