LOW-MAINTENANCE living: This modern, spacious townhouse is well situated close to Kopeopeo. Photos Open2View

Whether you’re a busy professional or retired, this modern townhouse is sure to tick all your boxes.

A BUSY life or just no desire to spend your weekends doing chores about the house?

This stylish, modern, low maintenance townhouse in James Street could be just the answer.
Just a two-minute walk to the supermarket, restaurants, hospital and Kopeopeo shopping area, it’s in a top location that is popular with retirees and professional couples who enjoy having amenities close at hand.

From the street, it looks compact and cute, but step inside and you’ll be impressed by the natural light, the high ceilings, the space and the modern styling of this well-designed home.

The floor plan provides 150 square metres of living space over two levels with the open-plan living areas and one bedroom, bathroom and garage on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two more bedrooms, including a master with walk-through wardrobe and semi-en suite.

The colour scheme throughout is modern with white walls and grey carpet – the perfect backdrop for any artwork and furniture.

The internal access single garage includes the laundry and there is also off-street parking for other vehicles available.

Downstairs, the living areas are open plan and with windows on three sides, the sun streams in from morning till late afternoon. A heat pump effectively heats the space in winter with the warmth also pushed up the stairs to the bedrooms.

The living areas flow onto a good-sized garden area, perfect for barbecues and outdoor entertaining. A raised garden bed along the western wall is empty and waiting to be planted by new owners.

All three bedrooms are large doubles with the downstairs room having generous additional storage. The house’s steep roofline makes for attractive angles in the upstairs rooms – and plenty of storage options. A striking black feature wall in the master bedroom adds interest and texture while in the second bedroom a skylight provides an opportunity for night-time star-gazing.

The upstairs bathroom is shared by both bedrooms, with walk-through from the master, and is a good size with separate shower, bath, vanity and toilet.

There is no set sale date, so no waiting and wondering. This property is priced to sell at $529,000 and could be yours with the right offer. Check out whether it is for you at this weekend’s open home.
