What Lies Within
If you drive past 56 Queen Victoria Street you won't see much from the road; simply a traditional 1940s stucco home with a garage, partly hidden by around 1500sqm of mature grounds. When you view however you're in for an eye-opener! The interior has been extensively refurbished with a stylish new kitchen that has a butler's pantry; a new family bathroom, a chic laundry and ensuite; new carpet in the living-dining area, hall and the bedrooms, plus elegant decor, fixtures and fittings throughout. Add to that the two heat pumps, log burner, wet-back and HRV and you have a comfortable 21st century residence. The refurbishment also includes partial re-piling, Gibbing and insulation, plus rewiring, replumbing and redecorating, so all the new owners need to do is shift in and settle, before turning their attention elsewhere. You see, there is still a little non-essential work that you might choose to do - but only when or if the mood takes you. For instance, you could revamp the separate sleep-out and transform it into a home office, a gym, hobby room or additional bedroom; there are plenty of options to consider there. Then there are the somewhat rambling grounds. Featuring a delightful entertaining space and an ornamental fish pond, this garden was once the toast of the local 'garden trail' and since the vendors have extensively tidied up, trimming back the wide selection of specimen trees and shrubs, there's an opportunity to restore it to its former glory - without having to buy much in the way of plants. Awesome! So, for any purchasers seeking a home that's close to the centre of the township, yet far enough away to provide you with a bit of peace and privacy, then its semi-rural location is ideal. If you also like the fact that the majority of the work has been done, but still with some scope left for you to make your mark, then you'll love it. So call us.
