Double the Opportunity, Double the Character, Triple the Potential (RZ3 zoned)!

Auction Location: Onsite.

The earning potential of a dual-income property is often sought after yet seldom offered. This property has that ready to go, with two secure tenants and earning potential to be realised. Spread across a generous 736m2 Inner North block, zoned RZ3 for future development, the opportunities are many.

For some, it's the iconic exposed brick in the living area, the previous heart of the home. For others, it's the iconic brick veneer façade, the location on the leafy tree-lined street a testament to the character of Canberra homes. For us, it's the location; just a 5-minute walk will take you to the Dickson pool and conveniently past the Dickson shops to share ice cream with the kids on the walk home. A 3-minute walk takes you into the heart of Dickson and Canberra's hub for multi-cultural dining. Just a few minutes into Downer will have you discover the famous Gang Gang's café and a quaint local wine shop. If you are feeling more adventurous the newly established light rail will take you into the heart of the city centre, there is little need for a car evermore.

When you step inside the property, you are greeted by the entranceway and throw closet and swiftly find yourself in the large open plan living and dining area. The original kitchen features the iconic outlook to the leafy green backyard and leads you towards the next area of the home. The main section of the home is equipped with three well-appointed bedrooms, two of which take full advantage of the Northern sun and feature built-in wardrobes. These three bedrooms are serviced by an original bathroom and bathtub, as well as a separate toilet.

The self-contained flat to the rear of the home is ideal for a student, a young professional or extended family alike. The separate entrance opens you into the spacious living and dining area accompanied by an updated kitchen area. The walkthrough wardrobe leads you past the bathroom and laundry and into the generously sized bedroom.
Dual income-earning properties in convenient locations such as this one don't come up too often. Don't miss your opportunity to secure what could be a solid investment or the family home for lifetimes to come.
