Auction: Saturday May 12, onsite
Settled behind an established front garden, this renovated classic weatherboard is a great step on the property ladder. Sitting on a large 772sqm block, it's just a short five minute walk to the village and beach, and just a few hundred metres from the sandy shores of Pittwater. City buses, Newport Public School, and the Newport pub are close by. If you've got young children, the first two are desirable, and the pub is probably essential...
Here's the skinny...Arriving on the front deck, which can also be accessed from the main living room, the front door opens to a wide hallway, with a stripped timber floor, which continues throughout the house.
The hallway connects the three bedrooms; the master, with ensuite, at the front, facing north, and two generous doubles sharing a large family bathroom, with shower and bath. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, and are light and bright. There's a huge set of cupboards in the hallway, and access to the attic for further storage if you need it.
Back into the reception room. There is a wall of west facing windows, a dining area and an open plan kitchen, which runs through to a huge rear deck, offering district views out to the hills. Perfect as an entertaining space, the previous owners spent many summer evenings enjoying the sunset.
Internal stairs from the living room go down to the lower level, where there is a further multi-purpose room, bathroom with shower, and access to the laundry. Outside there is a further covered area rolling onto near-level lawns, double parking space and extensive under house storage. And a big shed. Never underestimate the shed.
All the hard work has been done, but there's still scope to add your own mark to this neat home. Great for a young family, or downsizers wanting a flexible new home.
