THIS warm and inviting red-brick family home, nestled in park-like settings in Albert St, is in the desirable Gladstone suburb and is just a short walk to James Hargest College’s junior campus on Layard St.
There are three bedrooms: two are double and have double wardrobing, while the third is a single with wardrobing and an access door which leads to the private concrete patio and entertainment area overlooking the large and private backyard.
Each of the bedrooms are tastefully decorated and they have large aluminium-framed windows, which let in plenty of natural light.
The kitchen is functional and features plenty of bench space, cupboards and drawers. There is a smooth-top oven and a dishwasher. Big windows above the sink allow unobstructed views of the exquisite backyard. There is also an access door to the north-facing concrete patio/barbecue area – perfect for ease of entertaining.
The open-plan living and dining is one big room, with plenty of scope for family living. There are large windows to the south of the room, overlooking the front section and Albert St entrance, while glass doors to the north allow for all-day sun.
The family bathroom has a toilet, built-in bath with shower and a pedestal-style handbasin. A second toilet is found off the decent-sized laundry.
The recently new and quality carpet adorns the floor throughout the home, and the walls feature modern paint colours and wallpaper, including feature wallpaper in the hallway. The house has underfloor and ceiling insulation and a heat pump.
Outside, the garden is stunning. There are established trees, shrubs and gorgeous varieties of colourful roses.
There are concrete pathways leading around the garden and concrete garden edging ensures easy lawn mowing and tidy boundaries. There is also a garden shed and a separate defined area for growing vegetables – complete with raised gardens. The section is fully fenced, ensuring children and family dogs are safe and secure.
The internal access garage has plenty of room for storage.
