Feels Like Home: 249 Rankin Street, Bathurst

METICULOUSLY renovated to perfection, the charming home at 249 Rankin Street is an opportunity not to be missed.

Located on the fringe of the central business district, this property has the benefits of being close to shops, schools, parks and cafes without all the hustle and bustle. 

The entrance to the home brings you to a central hallway with polished timber floorboards. 

The hallway is flanked by two of the home's three bedrooms.

Each is of a generous size, featuring high ceilings and fresh carpet.

Two of the home’s bedrooms offer built-in storage. 

Further into the home you'll find two living areas.

The smaller of the two acts as a formal lounge with gas log fire, while the open-plan area at the centre of the home can easily cater to both living and dining. 

One of the stand-out features of this home is the kitchen, which is the clearest example of the thoughtful renovations that have been carried out since the current owners purchased the property eight years ago. 

The kitchen is large and airy, complete with modern cabinetry and benches. 

It offers good storage options, a dishwasher and large stainless steel oven. 

With homes built around the same time as the one at 249 Rankin Street, there is usually a single bathroom for the whole family to share. 

Understanding the needs of the modern family, this home offers two bathrooms. 

The main bathroom offers a shower, bathtub and vanity with twin sinks. 

The laundry doubles as a second bathroom, providing the household with another toilet and shower. 

Outdoors, this home offers a great grassed play area for children and pets to enjoy. 

There is also a covered patio and single garage with generous storage at the back.

The garden is low maintenance too, with beautiful landscaping works already done that are easy to tend to. 

In addition to all of this, this property is able to offer ducted gas heating, and the potential to expand the home. 

Bathurst Real Estate agent Matthew Locke said the property already has development application approval for extension with increased undercover area, a fourth bedroom with walk-in-robe and ensuite, parent’s retreat, as well as a study.

He said this property would be great for downsizers or the young family. 

"You don't find many fully renovated properties so close to town,” Mr Locke said.

Prospective buyers will have the opportunity to see the property for themselves on Saturday between 11.30am and 12pm.
