Directly opposite parkland with a magic outlook – wonderful opportunity!

A rare find! When it comes to position, outlook, streetscape and neighbours, you won't find a better spot to live in than Dowling Street in Watson – a place where the locals gather in the park, kids play and the community spirit is high. How do you put a price on that!

This privately built three-bedroom home is the perfect entry level residence or perhaps a fabulous opportunity to do a knock down and build the home of your dreams in one of the best locations on offer.

To the front of the home is the main living area, from here you flow to the dining and then to the updated kitchen. The home is light and airy with three excellent bedrooms, new paint and carpet plus new electrical wiring.

You have ample off-street parking plus a double garage that has been partially lined and insulated for a man cave – plenty of options to utilise as desired.

You will find yourself within a mere stroll of the thriving local shopping centre, cafes, an excellent choice of primary schools, the Australian Catholic University, Dickson College and public transport, including the light rail. Epic, where the weekly Farmers markets are held is just minutes away, as is the evolving Dickson precinct where some major transformations have been underway – this is a game-changer for the area.
