Built in 1961. Untroubled by shifting trends ever since...
We've had one a bit like this before. At the last one, 45 groups went in on the first day. We're not entirely sure how many came out...
Actually, this one is much better! You can walk around this without fear of being buried under an unexpected avalanche…
We're not sure what you might want to do here. A bit of creativity and you could do a great refurb of the existing building. Or extend. Or knock it over and start again. Either way, we're not asking you to sign personal waivers of liability before you enter, because we're quietly confident that you won't go through the floor.
Here's what's on offer:
North facing on a corner block, absolutely dead level lawns – front and back, right near Careel Bay, and quite close to a really good pie shop, so your tradies will be happy.
The front door opens to an open-plan reception, with an obvious hall area. Walk through to the kitchen, large, and fully kitted, if dated. A door leads to the double tandem garage, which runs front to back. Large sliding doors lead to the rear terrace, as does a door from the kitchen. Accessed both from the kitchen and the living area, is a long corridor, with a wall of cupboards and an airing cupboard. Opening off that is a large master bedroom, king bed-sized, and a second, which is an easy queen, and a third bedroom, maybe a double. All have built-in-robes. An original family bathroom completes the inside.
Outside, there's a laundry - with loo - and an absolutely level, if utterly underwhelming, garden. Here, you really could work some magic...fencing and well positioned planting could turn this into a verdant, and private oasis.
This house is, frankly, tired... but it has a great layout, and looks solid. Replace the aged aluminium windows, and control the mandarin tree in the garden that looks as though it's trying to get in, and It's a great entry level home, or a base for a serious renovation project.
Bring an open mind, a chequebook, a gardener and a builder...and you better be quick!
