Auction: Saturday 23rd February, onsite.
You'll be charmed by this utterly flexible, absolutely live-able single level residence. Opportunity knocks in this increasingly popular part of Avalon...
An attractive entry leads you into a lovely lounge area, with views over the lush native garden. The living room carries on around a corner into a more intimate space, with a solid fuel combustion fireplace for chilly winter nights. Full height glazed louvre windows add to the indoor/outdoor feel, which then open to a huge covered entertaining deck which really is the hub of the home, complete with overhead fans for summer - as well as a gas bbq point.
Back inside, there is a modern gas kitchen with all the right facilities for cooking up a storm!
The living room runs through to a separate space, currently used as a dining area, but easily re-purposed. Again louver windows make this feel as much an outdoor space as a room. This opens to another covered courtyard at the rear. Next to this, there's a large family bathroom (huge bath, shower, loo) and next door a vast laundry, with another loo, and a door to the garden. Close the door and the washings out of sight, out of mind.
Head into the bedroom wing, along a hallway where you'll find three good sized bedrooms with ceiling fans and robes, all with easy access to the over-sized family bathroom. On the other side of the main living areas, past the kitchen, is the master bedroom with heaps of built-ins and an ensuite shower room. On your way there you'll pass another reading room, and another bedroom, opening to the rear terrace, now used as an office as it provides separate access!
This home is utterly charming as is, but offers scope for reinvention and reconfiguration as well. The master wing could become a full parents retreat with minimal work, for instance.
Outside...there's a solid carport for 3 cars, with storage above, a shed, a further gravelled area (with double gates) which could be yet more parking, or be further landscaped...paved brick terraces mean it's a low maintenance garden at the rear. There's a hills hoist, and a 10,000 litre water tank with a watering system making it all but self-sufficient for gardening.
A level 10 minute walk gets you to Careel Bay marina, where there's a cute waterfront cafe, or walk 10 minutes in the other direction to express city transport and the beach! Avalon shops and schools are also very close by.
