In one of the best little pockets in town – with unimpeded views of treed hills and countryside, yet just a three-minute zip to the main shopping precinct – this fully revamped residence is a true gem.

It has been freshly painted in warm-white, new grey carpet has been laid and white rollerblinds are at windows, while original pine floorboards add warmth.

And, while there’s just the one two-way bathroom, it’s been done up really well and has a dual-zone configuration helping avert morning “queues”.

Entry is to a foyer, to the left of which is a carpeted lounge-dining room facing the side and front where outlooks shine.

A hallway then ducks right to three fitted bedrooms, one the main which faces those rural views and has two sets of built-in robes and direct access to the bathroom.

This has the tub and shower in one room, a separate toilet and a basin area of dual raised bowls atop a snazzy contemporary vanity.

The fourth bedroom is off the floorboarded family-meals zone, which has a split-system.

The kitchen has – behind four glossy-white louvred doors – a pantry cupboard as well as the cutest arched servery to the dining room. This is a very clever re-purposing of an original feature, bringing it up to date without losing its essential charm.

Other kitchen features are cream vinyl-wrap cupboards, soft-green laminate benches and stainless-steel underbench oven and gas cooktop.

A large covered pergola faces a nice surprise on the elevated block of about 755 square metres – wide steps bisecting terraced gardens that head up to a massive deck behind a wrought-iron fence.

It sits under the dappled shade of a couple of tall eucalypts and contains both a spa and a swim-spa. A large garden shed is tucked away in a corner.

The backyard comprises a pathway alongside dense greenery. In front of a stone wall is a two-car parking space that could be snaffled for a house extension or garage

First-home buyers, and investors who can expect to get great rent, should have this one on their radar.
