A Gift to 1st Home Buyers
You're looking for your first home and everything in your price range is on a dodgy street with a ton of work to do. The bank says you can buy it but with no money left for a can of paint you'll be living in a dive for a while yet. Your mum says there's no way her grandchildren will be living in that neighbourhood. We get it.
To solve all that, the owner of 19a Smith Street has done you a favour. He's re-wired, re-piled, insulated the ceiling and underfloor, painted inside and out, re-roofed, re-plumbed, renovated the kitchen and bathroom, and didn't cut corners. This beautiful character home even comes with a reasonable price-tag so that your bank, insurance company and mum will all be at peace.
While retaining the character timber features of the 1950s, it has a light-filled open plan living area, open plan living, sunroom, large wooden deck, three bedrooms, and a modern bathroom. There's a cosy fireplace to warm you up in winter and add a bit of ambience. Plus, the new kitchen will be a pleasure to cook in while still enjoying the company of family and guests.
Outside there's a new carport and a single garage, a tidy new fence and plenty of off-street parking to cater to family and guests. There's plenty of room left for the young and young at heart to run around in the tidy backyard.
You'll be minutes from Dinsdale and Frankton shopping, an easy commute to the CBD, and close to public transport. You'll be walking distance to the lake as well as an amazing array of fast-food outlets if you're too tired to cook. There's a good reason for the popularity of this pocket in the city, dubbed the Ponsonby of Hamilton. You'll find out what the fuss is about when you visit this weekend's open home. See you there.
