Double-gabled brick properties are as Aussie as Vegemite on toast and with their large backyards you can live the Australian family dream of old too – enjoying a big backyard (the block is about 583 square metres).

It’s in a good spot; located two streets back from a large park and within walking distance of the local family pizza restaurant.

The interiors have been renovated so it is turn-key ready, but there is plenty of scope for further modernisation inside and out.

The hardwood floors have been exposed and restored. Together with those large windows typical of this style of property, the house feels light and bright and is flooded with natural light.

The kitchen has been renovated with lovely hardwood benchtops, new white cabinetry and matching appliances.

The lounge room has an older-style wall-mounted gas heater with a brick surround. White walls instantly modernise the space.

There are three bedrooms, two of which have built-in robes. They are all a great size, and the floorboards look fantastic. The bedroom at the rear overlooks the large backyard with a generous and established lawn.

The bathroom has been updated with white and orange tiling.

An advantage of this property is the deep, concreted side drive which extends to the rear of the property. Here find a shed-style garage-cum-workshop.

Currently it has garaging for one car but could be re-configured to house two. It is a perfect opportunity for those wanting to run a business from home, or for those who want to tinker on the weekends. Development is also a possibility (STCA).

With excellent proximity to the Western Ring Road or the Calder Freeway, this is a great find, with all of the hard work already done.
