A Renovator's Dream Home!

2 1  

Surrounded by other high-quality homes, you only have to walk down the street to see what can be achieved with this renovator's delight. Only a stroll around the corner to the village and moments to beaches – consider renovating or rebuilding your dream coastal abode!

Occupying a prime position only one block away from the quaint and charming village of Balgownie, here you'll find eateries, restaurants, services, a community centre and the iconic Balgownie Hotel – an easy dinner option for those nights when you don't feel like cooking.

The kids can walk safely to Balgownie Public School and stop by James Pearson Park for a play on their way home which is located at the end of the street. The area is well serviced by local bus links and the train station is a 5-minute (approx) drive away.

Further amenities including a shopping mall, cinemas, University and TAFE are found in the neighbouring town of Wollongong which is only a 12-minute (approx) drive from your new home. The highlight of the location, however, is the proximity to glorious beaches – take your pick from Towradgi, Puckey's and Fairy Meadow Beach, only moments from your door.

Resting on a substantial 599m2 (approx) block, this solid brick cottage presents in original condition and is bursting at the seams with potential. Made of strong bones and revealing a practical layout, the home comprises a generous living room, dining room and kitchen. Timber floorboards flow throughout the residence which features 2 bedrooms, the master with built-in robes. Servicing the property is an external laundry and a family-sized bathroom with a shower, bath and a separate toilet.

The large and level allotment offers plenty of room to extend the property towards the rear (subject to council approval). Appreciating a sunny, north-facing backyard, consider adding a deck to capitalise on the stunning view of the Illawarra escarpment soaring in the background.

Alternatively, buyers seeking a base to build the ultimate coastal home can also explore the option to knock down and rebuild. Boasting side access and a decent sized frontage, the property is very accessible – ideal for building works.

Appealing to renovators who love a challenge, this cottage is a rare find in a sought-after street. Roll up your sleeves and create the masterpiece you've always dreamed of, or knock it down and build a custom retreat to suit the needs of you and your family. Whatever you choose to do with this blank canvas, this is an affordable buy into the high-growth suburb of Balgownie and opportunities like these are becoming increasingly difficult to secure. Don't miss out.
