Been waiting for the perfect property to come along? This rare offering on Lamb Island will set you up for life.
Spread across three separate titles on 1523m2 of land, this older Hardiplank 2-bedroom home has had a recent makeover, to get the blood pumping through her veins again.
3-7 Bloodwood is being sold as one lot. The house sits in the middle, at number 5; the carports and large lawn are to the left, on number 7; and the garage is on the shorter block to the right, at number 3. However, it may be possible to sub-divide and develop, subject to council approval. But why would you, when this expansive property with established gardens could grow with your family.
From the street, you are greeted by majestic bloodwoods, resting peacefully in the conservation reserve opposite. These trees fringe the council-owned land and make a wonderful buffer between you and any neighbours in the next street.
Enter via one of the two driveways and arrive at this high-set home, snuggled amongst the greenery of the turfed yard; macadamia, fig and gum trees for shade; and swaying palms for that tranquil feeling of island-living.
This is where your options start. You can take the stairs to the upper-deck (spanning the entire North-West run of the house) to enter via the sliding doors to the lounge, or the kitchen if carrying the shopping. If returning from work, you might enter via the laundry/mud-room, then make your way upstairs after removing your boots.
Currently, downstairs is mid-way through a renovation. Complete it for your specific purposes and either retain it as a separate granny-flat or rumpus-room; perhaps even add an internal-staircase to integrate the two levels into a large family home. Choices are endless, with sliding doors installed at East and West entrances; rough-out for a bathroom; and walls for extra rooms, already in place.
Upstairs, you’ll be surprised by the renovation already undertaken:
• Freshly painted throughout
• Updated kitchen with white cabinetry and sand-coloured laminate benchtops
• Large pantry, plus lots of overhead storage
• New gas cooktop/electric oven, dishwasher, sink and tapware
• Vinyl timber-look floors to living zones
• Neutral carpets to both bedrooms
• Ceiling fans throughout
• Air-con in master (still in plastic wrap)
• Full makeover to bathroom—black slate floors and new vanity
• Newly installed wood fireplace, just waiting to be lit
• Exposed beams to main rooms
The open-plan living lends itself to a busy family schedule. There’s a separate dining area through an arched doorway, which could be used as a home-office or guest room. The lounge has a cosy feel with the new wood-fuel fireplace taking centre-stage and doors opening onto the deck, just perfect for alfresco entertaining.
The kitchen zone is large enough for two chefs to work comfortably and there’s still space for a breakfast bar or eating area adjacent to the living. This space can be enlarged by opening the sliding doors to the North-facing deck, ideal for breakfast during the morning rush-hour.
Two large bedrooms are located on the eastern-wing. Both are newly carpeted and have ceiling fans. The master also has air-con and sliding-doors to the deck, for a little bit of parental R&R at the end of a long day.
A functional black and white bathroom adds a pop of chic, with: slate floors; vanity with vogue black basin floating on pearly-stone; a hip-bath with shower and updated tapware; new loo; 3-way light; ample towel space; and tons of natural light.
Outside, there’s plenty of feature too:
• Lock-up garage and shed for the work-vehicle and tools
• Double carport with direct access to house
• Concrete paths surround home (except southern side)
• Fenced on 3 sides
• Steps located front and back of upper-deck
• Great yard for kids and pets
• Off-street parking for boats, vans or trucks
• 250 litre Rheem hot water
Located at the happening-end of the island, just near the Recreation Club, Community Garden, Sports Field, Library and Progress Hall (yoga held here), all situated in Pioneer Park, just off Lucas Drive. The enclosed swimming area is also within walking distance, as is the ferry and local store.
If you’re after a bloody good deal, then look no further than 3-7 Bloodwood Avenue to take advantage of this rare opportunity. There’s room to move and room for further improvement.
