What a gem of find - a brick and tile 3 bedroom 2 bathroom with double garage free standing duplex half with two living areas - this property will be sure to impress. Located at the rear (battle axe) to increase privacy and situated on a survey strata block. Total land area is 617m2 including driveway.
There is excellent separation of space with one living area at the front, along with the main bedroom and ensuite and the other living area plus two other bedrooms located at the back.
The first room as you enter the property is a long entry foyer, or if via the shopper's entrance from the garage, then you arrive in the front lounge room.
The kitchen, formal dining room and family room are open plan and offer an abundance of light and space. With corner windows, the family room glows in the afternoon sun.
With a generous floor space, the U shaped kitchen has a practical and beautiful bay window which houses the double sink with double drainer + plumbed in filter tap. The DeLonghi electric wall oven plus microwave recess just above it and gas stove cater for all cooking styles.
The Sabbia Doro engineered stone benchtops are sturdy and gorgeous as well. Three bar stools are an easy fit for the breakfast bar.
The main bedroom is located at the front and has double mirrored sliding doors for built in robes. The ensuite features a spacious shower, vanity and WC.
The other two bedrooms both have double built in robes. The second bathroom which opens from the corridor near the two bedrooms features a shower, bath and vanity.
Amazing amount of storage in the laundry. Overhead cupboards, under sink cupboards, broom cupboard and a linen cupboard. Plenty of storage for the whole family. The clothesline is located just next to the laundry (on the other side of the 3 sided wrap around garden from the entertaining area). The second WC is via the laundry.
Another way to access the back yard is via the family room, with glass sliding doors which lead onto a large outdoor entertaining space covered by a pitched Colorbond patio roof. The undercover paved area can accommodate two large tables and chairs. Adding to the ambience is a lovely lemon tree. Double doors lead to the garage direct from the alfresco area.
Rare and unusual but a great bonus is the super sized double garage. Approximately 45 square metres in total, its length is 8.2 metres and width is 5.4 metres.
To add a touch of history and character, the property has also retained the original outhouse, which is hidden at the back of the garage.
To the side near the clothesline is a store room under the main roof line measuring approximately 1.5m x 2.7m - perfect for a couple of suitcases, bicycles and other bits and pieces. The gate from the front of the property is the nearest access point.
