Wonderful Watson Opportunity

This three bedroom, one bathroom, updated and extended Watson residence is a light-filled, spacious home with flowing open plan living areas radiating the warm charm and appeal of a country cottage. Designed to be sympathetic to the original 1963 build, the extension blends beautifully with the home's original style while introducing more contemporary features and details. These include a raked ceiling and windows set high above the original roofline to take advantage of the North-facing orientation, bringing even more light into the living areas.

Perfectly positioned on a 768m² block, in a tightly held peaceful street, just stroll to the end of the street to enjoy the parkland and sports oval that are conveniently close to Watson's thriving shopping centre and eateries. Offering buyers' a chance to imprint their vision on a property that is full of potential, here's the opportunity to flex your renovation skills while at the same time removing some white ant damage that recently showed up.

The appealing home offers extended open plan living spaces, with the formal living and dining room flowing to the family areas, and outside to the rear covered deck, smoothly integrating indoor/outdoor living. The raked ceiling and high windows pour light onto the charmingly updated kitchen, where the extra wide stove, with a 6-burner gas top, is sure to delight the heart of any home cook. With plenty of bench space, quality fixtures and a smart layout, the kitchen is at the centre of the living areas. Chatting to dinner guests or catching up on the kids' school day will be equally as easy from here.

Two of the generously-sized bedrooms have customised built-in wardrobes, and all the bedrooms are conveniently close to the large, updated bathroom with a bath and shower.

Additional features include the living room fireplace, perfect for snuggling up alongside with a relaxing drink on a long, cold Canberra evening. Ducted gas heating keeps the inside warm while outside, the large deck is an ideal wet weather play area for kids and pets or an entertainment centre in the warmer weather.

The fenced back yard is summer-shaded by trees and shrubs, with fruit trees and plenty of lawn for some backyard cricket. The large four-car garage offers secure parking for a Tradies' work trailer or car enthusiast, as well as the family vehicle, and there's plenty of paved off-street parking as well.

There's so much potential here. Live-in and enjoy this beautiful home, or rent the house while you draw up your renovation plans and get them approved. Investors will appreciate the superb location and rental potential on offer here. With motivated owners committed to selling, this opportunity could bring your chance of living the Inner North lifestyle a lot closer.

Invest in yourself today, and enjoy the capital growth into the future. A must to inspect.
