Built back in the days when palm trees were popping up in Sunshine West – especially around the Glengala Road shops and medical centres that are within a five-minute stroll – this house embodies the look of the suburb’s more established parts.

Its location is blue-ribbon – within a five-minute drive of the station, Sunshine Marketplace shopping plaza and the multicultural eateries on Hampshire Road. Two primary schools are 10 minutes away by foot, while Sirius College Ibrahim Dellal campus is five by car. Not to mention Melbourne CBD is just 10 kilometres away.

The solid-brick house has all five bedrooms up top, the main with walk-in wardrobe and en suite. There’s a second toilet up here, while the landing has access to balconies front and back.

The ground floor has a tiled hallway running from front door to back door. Along the way is an open family room that links with the dining zone.

Polished floorboards anchor these two spaces, and the first of many blingy lightfittings are on show. Ornate cornices are on the high ceilings all through.

Next up is the tiled separate kitchen, big enough to add a small table and chairs. Fresh and crisp in all white, it has plenty of cupboards and bench space, a wall oven and 900mm gas cooktop.

On the other side of the hall, there’s a separate toilet, the laundry and a main bathroom that needs cosmetic attention.

The original garage has been converted into a large tiled room with exposed brick walls. With a glass slider to the front garden and adjoining parking space for at least two cars, it would make an ideal games room or even a home business office.

A covered alfresco area looks out to a good wedge of lawn and there’s a shed/garage, as well.

The block is about 620 square metres, allowing room for dreams.
