Period Charm In Prime Position
Positioned in the bustling precinct of Geelong West, this period brick home is bursting with charm and potential for young families or renovators alike.
The interior exudes character with soaring ceilings, polished hardwood floors, decorative cornices and ceiling roses, reflecting the home's rich history. Picture rails and dark timber wainscoting in the hallway and living room add interest and drama. The combined kitchen/dining zone forms the heart of the home and opens to a cosy living room where you will love relaxing by the gas-log fire nestled into the original brick fireplace. The updated kitchen features quality Bosch appliances (electric oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher) and a built-in pantry.
Two well-sized bedrooms at the front of the home contain built-in robes. And the versatile sunroom could easily be converted into a third bedroom or study, boasting plenty of natural light. Centrally located, the original main bathroom includes a combined shower and bathtub. Whilst a renovated second bathroom at the rear also provides laundry facilities. A split-system heating and cooling unit, gas log fire and multiple ceiling fans ensure year-round comfort.
The front garden incorporates hedging, fruit trees and an inviting red-brick footpath. Meanwhile, the rear yard offers endless possibilities to put your stamp on the property, whether redesigning the low-maintenance landscaping or extending the current home (STCA). Rear access to a double lock-up garage via French Street provides secure off-street parking and additional storage.
Conveniently located only a moment's walk to local supermarkets, cafes and shops on Shannon Avenue. Or stroll down to the delights of vibrant Pakington Street. Public transport is on your doorstep, and the Geelong Railway Station is just a 5-minute drive (approx). A selection of schools and private colleges are all within easy reach and ideal for growing families. Easy Ring Road access keeps you connected to Melbourne and the Surf Coast.
Potential rent return at $435 - $455 per week. To discuss in further detail please contact Emily Reid on 0477 922 969.
