House of the week: The right what and where

IN THE words of agent Kevin Barry, it is the “what and where” that set this home apart.

Located on the Midland Highway with a bus stop out the front, it offers a convenient location just minutes from the Huntly shopping facilities.

This well-presented brick home, on a 1270m2 allotment, has an 18-metre verandah that stretches along the front of the house with blinds that keep the house cool in the summer.

The front door opens into a large and comfortable lounge area with a solid fuel heater and brick feature wall, as well as access to the garden.

To the right is an open-plan kitchen and dining area, with a Westinghouse wall oven and four-burner electric cooktop, as well as a large pantry.

The three double bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobes, are at the end of the home with a family bathroom and separate toilet and laundry with a full wall of cupboard space.

Despite sitting on the main road it is surprisingly quiet.

But the selling point is out back.

The home opens onto a covered verandah ideal for entertaining with a barbecue area and jacuzzi.

The secure backyard has a large fully-powered shed with slide door and gabled roof, and a grass lawn that the agent says is perfect for Boxing Day cricket.

The side of the home gives double gate access to the rear and there is Coloubond fencing around the home.

It would suit a variety of buyers; someone that wants some space, a tradesperson who could use the rear access, or a family who will make the most of the garden.
