Auction Location: Onsite

This wonderful home is situated in the famous leafy streets of Dickson. Walking up to the home you are greeted with a beautiful front garden filled with Australian natives, low maintenance, hardy, and still growing to provide the home with even more privacy. The front sitting area is ideal for those morning coffees!

Up the timber front porch & into the home, the owners have cleverly created the perfect space to hang your keys & your coats, they have even added a door to help block out the cold in these chilly winter months!

The second thing you'll notice about the home (aside from how lovely & welcoming it feels) is the abundance of natural light. Each room is fitted with beautiful black trim windows & outlooks onto greenery. The sitting room is perfect for unwinding with a glass of vino after a long week or having friends & family over for a board games night.

The formal dining looks out onto the green backyard & separate from the living for those 'technology-free' nights. Perfect to sit & talk for hours about your week with your family.

The kitchen is built with both function and style in mind. An abundance of storage to fit everything you need (& more), so much so, that your Tupperware lids can have their own draw so you never lose them again! The walk-in pantry is an organiser's dream & the stone benchtops offer plenty of space to get creative, whilst the sleek splashback adds sophistication whilst still keeping the warm & homey feel of the kitchen. Smart little designs such as the draining feature on the sink & the retractable hose nozzle will make cleaning quicker & easier (more time to spend with the family!). The double oven, stainless steel appliances & gas cooking will have you whipping up Masterchef-worthy meals for your family, though on those nights where you don't feel like cooking, Dickson offers plenty of restaurants you can work your way through! Don't forget the little blackboard for the kids (or for the parents to make a chores list for those kids!).

The open-plan living room is one of our favourite rooms in this home! North facing, high ceiling, polished timber flooring – it's easy to see why we love it so much! A spacious & versatile space that flows onto your entertaining deck. You'll save on heating costs with the beautiful winter sun naturally warming the home. The honeycomb blinds are practical & stylish when you want to keep the cold out but still allow the light through!

The north-facing main bedroom is more of a little parents' retreat, away from the other bedrooms offering privacy & spacious enough for a small couch or a reading chair. Wake up to the sun streaming into the bedroom with views of the beautiful garden, or if you prefer, you have the block-out blinds for a nice dark room. The walk-in wardrobe offers both shelving & hanging space. The ensuite is modern with beautiful finishing (& a heated towel rack, great for winter!), and the shower offers a unique pebble flooring.

Both bedrooms are generous with build-in wardrobes & large windows to the serene front garden. The study nook is perfect to add a desk, creative space or extra storage!

The main bathroom is light & fresh, the deep blue tiles reminding of us the South Coast we all love so much. The mirrored vanity offers storage behind & the bathroom is perfect for young children or parents after a busy day (good book, tea, perfect!).
Unlike a lot of laundry's these days, it offers storage, good bench space & a very practical two-way entry.

The entertaining deck is made to be enjoyed all year round! With skylights in the pergola, allowing light to shine through. The deck wraps around the side, making the most of the backyard. Sit in the sun on a calm winter's day reading a good book or sit around the firepit & roast marshmallows at night. The backyard offers room for kids to run around & a garden to be enjoyed. It is peaceful & quiet with nothing but some rustling leaves & birds.

The location of this property is a real treat! Roughly a 13-minute walk into the town centre of Dickson, where you can explore the abundance of cafes and restaurants Dickson is so famous for! Located in a beautiful quiet tree-lined street yet close to key transport routes and only a 5-minute drive to the light rail. Mt Ainslie reserve is just up the road and a perfect place to go for a ride or run. You'll have your weekly shop sorted with Woolies (and soon to be a Coles as well). Your choice of gyms and, of course, the Dickson Pool to cool down in Summer is only a 2-minute drive or maybe a game of tennis with Majura Tennis Club? Only a 4-minutes drive away. The location also offers the Dickson Wetlands and playfields just around the corner, a lovely spot to walk the pets with an off-lead dog park or play with the kids. With plenty of schools around, the choice is yours!
