Ripe For Renovation Or Redevelopment!

Michael and Christine Holowiecki from Keeping It Realty are proud to present this charming home with lovely street appeal, boasting a wide frontage and low maintenance gardens set in a leafy neighbourhood within the City of Marion.

Established in 1960 on a *800sqm block there is plenty of potential for renovation, redevelopment or creation of your own dream home (subject to council consent).

As you enter the home from the verandah, you’ll first encounter the carpeted living room, perfect for curling up with a book while you take in views of the front garden or spending the evening relaxing with your family.

Moving on from the living room you’ll find an equally spacious dining room, with floating floors, attractive light fittings, ducted evaporative air conditioning and entrance to the kitchen via an archway.

The galley style kitchen is located at the rear of the home, and contains plenty of bench space and wooden cabinets, along with a double sink, gas stove, Simpson dishwasher and oven. Designed with an additional arched serving window directly into the dining room, it also offers stunning views of the beautiful gardens.

The home has 3 bedrooms that are located off the hall to the right of the entrance. The main bedroom is carpeted and contains a ceiling fan and built-in robe, perfect for keeping your clothes in order. The 2nd bedroom also contains a built-in robe with a mirrored door, with floating flooring and direct access into a sunroom/office. The 3rd bedroom sits at the front of the house and offers views of the front garden.

The bathroom is easily accessed from all the rooms and features a vanity, along with a bath with spa settings and shower, while the toilet is located separately for your convenience.

A generously sized stand-alone laundry with large basins offers direct access to the rear yard via a covered verandah area.

The large rear yard has been lovingly cared for and here you’ll find lush green lawn and an abundance of mature fruit trees ranging from apricots, apples, pears, figs and plethora of other lovely offerings. Ready made vegetable patches are equipped for your planting and a delightful gazebo serves as an idyllic spot to spend your free time, as you take in the greenery around you.

There is so much potential for further improvements to the space, whether it be a swimming pool, further landscaping, entertainment area or extension/renovation.

In the rear yard is also a shed that doubles as a workshop, great for car enthusiasts, while a single car garage and single lock up carport provide shelter for your vehicles, with additional car parking space in the driveway for another car, and plenty of space to install additional garaging.

The home is located close to multiple public transport routes leading to all major Adelaide Universities and popular Glenelg.

Nearby you’ll find plenty of restaurants and cafes, with shopping options including Westfield Marion, Park Holme Shopping Centre and Castle Plaza.

Local schools include Westminster College, Hamilton High School, Springbank Secondary College, Marion Primary, Ascot Primary, Clovelly Park Primary, Forbes Primary and Warradale Primary.

Situated only 7.5kms from glorious Glenelg Beach, you’ll also find the Adelaide CBD only 11.4kms away.

This rare offering is sure to gain plenty of interest.
