Looking for that little bit extra that makes a house, a home?

This amazing post-war, 3-bedroom home has been painstakingly renovated to meet modern-day expectations and goes beyond the standard property on the current market.

From the verge, you know it’s going to be something else. Swaying palms and a sculptured letter-box, set it apart. Double-gates open to reveal a gravel driveway with enough parking for all your cars, caravan and boat.

Landscaped gardens guide you to the front deck, overlooking a lush lawn which is perfect for kids to play and animals to feel secure, safely behind the Colorbond steel fence.

The crisp-white house sits proud in the centre of the 531m2 block, with vacant blocks either side making it appear smaller than it is, inside.

Open the front-door and step into the open-plan living with brand new kitchen, room for dining area and separate lounge, all embracing the original timber floors which flow seamlessly to the massive covered rear-deck, through the black French-doors.


You’d be proud to live here, enjoying the recent make-over which includes:

  • new kitchen with Omega 6-burner gas cooker & electric oven
  • butler sink & Westinghouse dishwasher
  • double pantry & large fridge space
  • timber-look benchtop
  • distressed tile splashback
  • feature light fittings over work area
  • incorporated study-nookat end of kitchen
  • LED lighting
  • ceiling fans
  • new electrics & plumbing
  • replacement doors, architraves & ceilings
  • fresh paint
  • carpets to 3 bedrooms
  • funky bathroom with blonde oval-vanity, corner spa-bath (shower over) & loo
  • grey-&-white floor tiles & black hardware make this retreat space pop
  • internal laundry (in bathroom)

Designed with the living in one-half of the house and the sleeping zone in the other, the floorplan works well, with the sparkling new bathroom connecting the two zones. Having the laundry in the bathroom where the dirty clothes are dropped, is a bonus! Imagine having a relaxing bath while the work-clothes are also soaking?

The newly-carpeted bedrooms all have ceiling fans, large windows and the two bigger rooms have mirrored-robes. The master bedroom also has matching black French-doors to the living, which open onto the deck—perfect when entertaining and not wanting to disturb sleeping children.

A North-facing timber-deck spans the full-width of the house and is generously deep, extending the living and doubling your entertaining area. A clever built-in media station (with speakers and room for a large TV) is concealed behind a hinged retro-door (the original back-door, turned sideways, perhaps?). This outdoor space offers hours of all-season sports viewing, family movie nights and a happy zone for children’s shows.

The French-doors provide easy indoor-access and privacy screens to the rear, keep the sun at bay. The high-pitched roofline with ventilation means it’s never stifling hot and stays dry on rainy days. You’ll be sure to make many memories on this deck when hosting friends and family, no matter the weather.

Take the back-stairs off the deck and cruise the grounds to discover:

  • new Rinnai hot water service
  • under-house storage for mower & tools
  • room for a shed/workshop
  • turfed grounds
  • fully-fenced & gated
  • gravel drive
  • natural outlook to bushland

With new-builds behind, you’ll have instant friends in this upcoming neighbourhood, which is quiet and still mostly forested. 57 Dempsey Street is close to town, sporting fields, clubs and recreational facilities. Kids can walk to school and the shops and ferry are a pleasant stroll through the nearby parklands.

If you’re ready to discover a hidden pocket at the North-end of the island, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997 to make this classic family home, your happy place.
