Description

Character + income - walk to city


Beautifully elevated for views and sunshine and full of character, here is a lovely family home, so close to town you can leave the car in the garage.

And there's a significant bonus - a self-contained flat below for income or extended family use.

Watson Street will be a surprise to most, tucked away off Washington Valley Road in a cul-de-sac, high on the hill for views to the city and across the valley. The street, named after the original owner of this home, shares a right of way with a few neighbours.

Bay windows, high (3m +) ceilings, exposed timber beams, original doors and coloured glass remain as original features, but the house has been extensively updated.

Wiring and plumbing has been recently renewed and, also in recent years, re-piling, and re-roofing along with ceiling and underfloor insulation.

With its lovely, peaceful back garden, full of greenery and seasonal colour, this is a property where you can relax with family and entertain friends. Having a reserve next door adds to the tranquility and birdsong.

The house offers 210 square metres of space, accentuated by high ceilings and large rooms. Cooks will enjoy the renewed kitchen with quality appliances. Stack back doors to the rear courtyard are brilliant for summertime entertaining.

The house offers a choice of master bedrooms, one with an adjoining sunroom and the other, a former front lounge, with a bay window looking out to elevated vistas. The other bedroom is a generous double. With the flat downstairs, there is loads of accommodation.

Storage is excellent, too, with so much room under the house for storage and further development, if you wish. The house has a ceiling system to circulate air.

While you can walk to the Saturday market, there is plenty of parking space, with the garage and room outside for at least two vehicles.

For sunny, elevated views and proximity to town, and bonus income, there is lots to like about this excellent property.
