AN easy-to-care for, renovated home surrounded by luscious established gardens – what more could you ask for?
Located in a quiet part of Bathurst is the hidden gem that is 345 Howick Street.
The current owner has lived at the property for a number of years and has done their best to create a beautiful home with a lot of character.
RECENT PROPERTY FEATURES:
Opening up the front gate, you find yourself on a path surrounded by shrubbery that leads up to the front door.
Like many other homes built in the same era, this one offers a covered veranda at the front that spans the width of the house.
A quaint foyer leads into the living room at the front of the home, which offers new carpet in a neutral colour and a lot of the original features that give this property character.
These include decorative plaster work on the ceiling, picture rails and stained glass doors that open onto the front veranda.
Continuing through the home, the kitchen sits at the centre and appears to have been left largely untouched, although it does have new vinyl flooring.
The kitchen also offers twin pantries, a new oven and space for a dining table.
A sunroom sits at the back of the property, overlooking the rear garden.
This space could be used as another living area, a formal dining space or a home office if required.
The home’s bathroom, which comes off the sunroom, has been given a great makeover in recent years.
It has a modern vanity, shower over tub, toilet and is set up to double as the home’s laundry.
What can be appreciated about this room is that although it has a dual purpose, the laundry equipment is kept quite separate from the bathroom amenities.
This cottage offers two good size bedrooms that enjoy plenty of natural light.
The master bedroom, overlooking the front garden, is enormous and also offers built-in-robes.
What can’t be ignored about this property is its gardens, which can be enjoyed from both the home’s windows and the timber deck at the back.
A lot of care has been taken to ensure the back garden in particular remains a tranquil place, with a variety of green shrubbery and brightly coloured flowers.
Gravel and brick paths weave through the garden, leading to the vegetable patch and the shed.
In addition to all of these features, 345 Howick Street offers a gas fireplace, reverse cycle heating and cooling, and secure off-street parking.
This property is listed with Ray White Emms Mooney sales specialist Kurt Waterford and it will go to auction on November 30.
Mr Waterford said it would suit downsizers and first home buyers.
“It’s a great location and it’s walking distance to parks, schools and the hospital,” he said. “And it’s got quite a private feeling with the gardens.”
The property has two open inspections coming up, one on Friday between 1pm and 1.30pm, and the other on Saturday from 10am to 10.30am.
