A private retreat in the city


WITH Waverley Park School next door and James Hargest College senior campus within walking distance, this two-storey, four-bedroom home is ideal for a family.


Set back from the street down a winding driveway and surrounded by established, easy-care gardens, the home is a quiet and private retreat.

Clad in a combination of brick and wood, this 1950s home has a country manor feel, complete with varnished floorboards and wood detailing a feature throughout much of the house.

There are two living spaces. One is a good-sized separate lounge, heated by a log burner, which leads out on to a north-facing patio. The second is an open-plan space incorporating lounge, dining and kitchen with bi-fold doors which also leads out on to the patio. This space is light and bright, with a heat pump providing additional heat.

The modern kitchen has plenty of storage, a roll-away pantry cupboard and a dishwasher.

Through the hallway is a good-sized cupboard and a bright, spacious separate laundry with loads of storage.

There is also a modern double bedroom on the ground floor decked out with neutral tones and new carpet, with a separate toilet and basin next door.

The other three double bedrooms and a modern bathroom are located upstairs. All the bedrooms are generous in size, north-facing and have ample built-in storage. They also have hush glass windows to ensure the rooms remain quiet and peaceful.
The bathroom has a charcoal and white colour scheme and features a toilet and separate bath and shower.


Outside, there are several other outdoor spaces in addition to the patio, including an alfresco undercover dining space on the west.

Storage is not an issue outside either, with several sheds at the back of the property and a two-car tandem garage with shelving aplenty.

Located in the sought-after suburb of Waverley, this move-in ready home is warm, bright and inviting.  For more information click here.
