Close to school and Ascot shopping centre


THIS compact 1960s brick and roughcast home in the heart of Ascot is an ideal fit for a family, a first home buyer or as an investment.

Set on a 796m2 section, the 100m2 home has retained its original features of the era.

The entrance at the front door is sheltered, with a small veranda and patio.

The hall is welcoming, with wooden-framed doors which lead off to the lounge on the right and bedrooms on the left.

The hall’s stippled ceiling gives texture and adds to the home’s atmosphere.

The lounge, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and art deco-inspired ceiling, also has further detail with decorated ceiling cornices bordering the room.

There is an easy flow from the lounge to the kitchen, which has its work areas under the windows. The morning sun fills the kitchen and dining area, and light floods this home.

Insulated in the roof and under the floor, the living area is heated by a heat pump, with another heat pump in the main bedroom, and the option of a nightstore heater in the hall.

All three double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, and the family bathroom has a vanity, toilet and shower.

The spacious laundry, located at the back door, has plenty of storage and cupboards.

The fully fenced, extensive back yard has potential with a glasshouse in one corner leaving plenty of room for the children or the pets to run around.

The standalone garage has another carport/garage attached, and there is plenty of space for more off-street parking if needed.

Situated next to the Ascot Community School and close to the nearby Ascot Shopping Centre, it is only a short five to 10-minute drive to the inner city.
