2 Thursday, February 7, 2013 Western Homes Built to last: This solid home sits on a half share of 814 square metres of land. Fantastic first home in a good location Dream backyard: High fencing ensures total privacy for family enjoyment or entertaining guests. Spaciously comfortable: A perfect living area to unwind. Functional kitchen: Featuring a ceramic hob with rangehood and plenty of storage. Built in the 1950s, this two bedroom, one bathroom, brick and tile home would appeal to young professionals, couples with a young child or first time buyers alike. 13A Alford Street has a lovely, homely vibe to it -- which you'll appreciate from the minute you step in the front door. The generous master bed- room sits on the right off the hall, and boasts a large built in wardrobe. It sits next door to a new bathroom with blue feature tiles and contempor- ary shower. Keep the family cosy in the spacious living room, with new wood-burner and bright, white walls. This room adjoins the dining room and separate kitchen area. Both rooms are sunny, tidy and functional. The second bedroom next door could be a darling nur- sery, single bedroom, extra storage area or study if requi- red. Follow outside to the laun- dry room and even more storage space. Discover the peaceful, tastefully landscaped back- yard with an awning over the shaded patio. There is a north-facing, sun-drenched, elevated deck overlooking the al fresco din- ing area, manicured lawn and mature garden area. Pop up a paddling pool, light the bar- becue, and you've got the per- fect spot to enjoy the summer months. An HRV home ventilation system has been installed, making the home incredibly dry and warm. Full of potential, this sol- idly built home is ready to be lived in now, but is also a per- fect renovation or decoration project for DIYers with an interest in boosting its value. This property in the heart of Waterview would make a very clever investment in such a desirable location. Down the road from the scenic Oakley Esplanade, other parks, shops and local schools, it's a very short drive from motorway entrances, and only 10 minutes away from the city centre. There is a wonderful com- munity feeling in the street with many young profes- sionals in the area. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity -- quality, entry level homes do not stay around long in this market.
