You hear us real estate agents quote this over and over; Location, Location. And you know it’s true. Try to sell a pretty house and a not so nice neighbourhood and the poor owner has an uphill battle. But every buyer is going to want to inspect an attractive home in a superb location.
Come to see 45 Duke Street, Northam. You’ll love it. Positioned ‘smack-bang’ in the centre of town, you’ll be able to walk with ease to the main street shops, schools, doctor, dentist, sports ground and Rec Centre.
It’s had the same owner for the past 14 years who has effected some beautiful renovations and it really is a dream to live in.
It’s a 1950s brick and tile home, has 3 bedrooms, a country sized kitchen big eneough to setup the meals table, that is, if you don’t want to dine at the far end of the lounge room. There’s a family bathroom with separate shower recess and bathtub at the front of the house but the laundry has been recently renovated and features the first toilet and a second shower recess. More renovations to the rear of the house showcase a stunning covered patio area with second toilet (and hand basin) set-off to one end so your invited party-goers won’t have to traipse through the house to use the loo.
Plenty of natural light floods across the front verandah, a great spot for an arvo coffee or after-work drink, and into the lounge room through its wide window. This room has a slow combustion wood fired room heater and, if you don’t feel like chopping wood, a gas space heater. The lounge is also the first place you’ll notice the rich, red jarrah floor boards that flow throughout the house.
Bring outdoors indoors through the beautiful French doors that open up the vestibule, a perfect kids’ activity zone, to the entertainment zone under the patio.
There’s a great expanse of lawn, easy to maintain and perfect for kids’ play, that stretches from the patio to the far back yard with tool shed, garden shed and carport.
Attention parents with pre-schoolers and young primary school aged children. When they set off to school, you worry about their safety, right? Who doesn’t? Have no fear at 45 Duke Street. You’ll kiss and wave them goodbye as they cross the road and there you have it, they’ve arrived on the school campus, all before your eyes.
Steve Hill and Lara Turnbull are ready and waiting to arrange your inspection. Call soon before it’s too late.
