Completely renovated within, and with an appealing and updated weatherboard facade, this property presents as a great first home option that is move-in ready.

The deep front porch is an invitation to lounge on balmy summer evenings as the kids frolic on the lawn in the generous front yard.

Swing open the front door to find original floorboards that have been sanded back and restored.

The lounge room has a mid-century slate fireplace surround.

The large kitchen and meals area is white-on-white and looks fab.

Gloss white tiling, stone benchtops and white 2pac soft-closing cabinetry set the tone.

There’s a brand-new stainless-steel oven and dishwasher, while the glass splashback offers clean lines (and is easy to clean, too).

A separate study space leads to the laundry, with a sliding door opening to timber steps and a small courtyard, with a garden bed and access to the garage beyond.

There are three bedrooms, all with restored hardwood floors and built-in robes. The main bedroom is considerably larger and flooded with light that bounces off the mirrored built-in robe.

The main bathroom has also been renovated, with its slate-grey tiling set against white cabinetry and contemporary fittings.

Floor-to-ceiling white tiling is an added feature.

St Albans train station is a 20-minute walk away or a five-minute drive, with the vibrant shopping of Alfrieda Street and surrounds also very handy.

Numerous local schools are nearby, as is the St Albans campus of Victoria University

This is a fantastic option for those not wanting to break the bank, yet seeking an as-new property with some period appeal in a popular suburb.

Other features include a two-car garage and a study.
