Location, Character & Value!

Perfectly positioned close to schools, shops and across the road from Glebe Park playground, this property has been in the same family since built over 70 years ago. The vendors, who were once the neighbourhood kids, talk of swimming and fishing in the Queanbeyan River, playing across the road in the park, walking to school and enjoying the home and garden their parents had created.

Set in one of Queanbeyan’s most sought-after locations, this property has recently been painted and prepared for sale. Built with Canberra clinkers, this full brick property has very good bones and the roof is of terracotta tiles in the Marseille pattern.  The property has had three extensions between 1951 -1986. The first, adding a bedroom and the front porch in 1951. Then in 1960, the garage was extended, providing double the space for cars and a workshop. Finally, adding in 1986 another bedroom and en-suite and increasing the size of the lounge room. 

From the curb side, you enter the property through a corner gate and a curved path leads to the front door. French doors invite you through to the entrance hall, a pleasant way to welcome your guests. The residence has plenty of character and consists of 4 very good sized bedrooms with timber windows and built-in wardrobes to 3 rooms. There is an en-suite and a 3 piece family bathroom.  9 foot ceilings throughout the home also make it feel spacious and grand. A lounge dining room is complete with open fireplace and benefits from sun streaming in north facing windows.

The spacious kitchen has electric hotplates and oven plus an Everhot fuel stove. The hot water system is also electric and is adaptable to solar panels and the fuel stove for those wanting to save on the energy bills. The kitchen has great bench space and room for a small table.

The back door leads to the garage and work shop and is accessed from the kitchen via a fantastic tiled multipurpose room with adjacent storeroom and laundry. The roof space is accessible via a pull down ladder system, providing extra storage space.

This property is ready to move into or has the potential to renovate into a modern residence. It will certainly make a great investment or family home.
