Retro-styled house in town with views.
The house is for sale from Ray White in Balingup, 9764 1139 or 0429 976 412.
The price is $375,000. The house has been fully renovated to high quality standards. It was intended that it be the eventual home for the owners, but who have now decided not to move from their current property, a little out of town.
The house is ready to move into. There is scope for a wing, perhaps a pavilion, to be added.
The location is excellent. A place in the country but with up to date amenities, walking distance of the coffee shops, a quiet spot and magnificent views to the hills.
North-facing it is sited to be sheltered from the cold, winter winds from the south east and to make the most of the winter sun.
It is handy to the South Western Highway which from here is a two and a half hour drive to Perth.
It has two bedrooms and a compact ‘den’ that could be an office or study. There is a garage and the opportunity and space to build an additional garage or shed.
The house has a new roof, gutters, exterior walls with insulation, new bathroom and laundry wing, polished jarrah boards, new lights, painted throughout. Fine furniture maker of Bridgetown, Glen Holst, has made the benches for the kitchen, laundry and bathroom.
Extensive outside hard landscaping with back courtyard created and a terraced back area west of the house. New septic tanks and long leach drains that look as though they could service a small hotel. New air conditioning and wood heater in lounge plus a Metters stove in the kitchen, and a new gas stove and dish washer.
All on a block of 2431sqm i.e. over half an acre in the old language. The block goes down a slope to the winter creek that enters the Balingup Brook.
There is excellent Mobile coverage as the tower is in sight about 1.5 km away. NBN can be readily connected via Fixed Wireless Broadband which would receive signals from the same tower.
Here is the house in the context of its surroundings.
The town centre with its coffee shops is only some 200m away. The Balingup General Store is literally around the corner. Whilst the South Western Highway is only about 100m away, the house is well screened from view and the sound of traffic is muted.
Here are scenes from the interior of the house: the lounge, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom.
