THIS classic, 1960s three-bedroom home with a large section could be just what your family has been looking for.
The 809 square-metre section is fully fenced and has well established citrus and stone-fruit trees.
A large, separate double garage contains a sleep-out and extra storage or workshop space.
Timeless features like the rounded concrete front steps and native timber floors create a great vibe while the house has had some improvements made to it over the years.
Among other updates, most of the windows have been replaced with low maintenance aluminium frames, a sliding door has been installed into the north-facing wall, overlooking the backyard and a deck situated to soak up the sun.
However, there is still plenty of scope here for someone wanting a property they can add value to.
The bedrooms are good sized with the master bedroom being double the size of the other two.
The hardwood floors have been left bare to show off the native timber, while the hallway and lounge are carpeted.
The lounge is very spacious with a built-in wood fire.
This space flows through to the dining and kitchen area where the floors have recently been sanded and polished.
The ranchsliding door opens from the dining room to the deck, which is north-facing and the perfect spot to keep an eye on the children playing in the private backyard.
There is a lot of space devoted to the bathroom, with separate areas for shower, bath and toilet.
While it all works well as it is, there is lots of room available for someone wanting to modernise.
A second door from the loo leads to the large laundry with double tubs by the back door.
A large lawn area at the front of the house will give the older kids plenty of space for kicking a ball around.
This family home is within easy walking distance to local schools and college.
This property is ready for you, so you can be moved in and living at your new home before Christmas.
