CLASSIC 70s STYLE NEAR CENTROTucked away in a well regarded street close to schools, sports, CBD & Centro Shopping centre, this classic cream brick home has plenty to offer. Well maintained over the years, the house has been extended at the back providing a self-contained unit comprising 4th bedroom with ensuite, kitchenette and separate living area, ideal for a dependent relative, teenager or for dual occupancy/ second income.
Set back from the street with a large concrete driveway for extra vehicles/ caravan etc. and a garage down the back, the house at 31 St James is all on the one level, situated pretty much on the crest of the hill with some rural outlook to the North and city views to the South. Gardens are well landscaped and low maintenance, so this property would suit downsizers as well as families and investors.
From the front entrance hall, the pine floorboards, decorative cornices and 9" ceilings are on show, characteristic of the early 1970s construction. There are 3 bedrooms in the front wing, master with BI robes and dresser, bedrooms 2 & 3 are good size and carpeted. The front lounge is North facing with reverse cycle split system heating/ cooling, and a door leads thru to the kitchen/ meals area with an adjacent study/ sitting room. The family bathroom has bath, shower and vanity, with separate laundry and toilet.
The house was extended in 2008 with a passage at the back of the original house leading to a good sized fourth bedroom with ensuite and BIRs, with a lovely open plan living area with split system heating/ cooling and well equipped kitchen & meals area. There is a sheltered deck and alfresco area which also provides separate side access to the back of the house. Fixtures & fittings are of good quality and the house is light with big timber windows letting the North sun stream thru the house.
There is scope to improve cosmetically inside if you wish and floorboards under carpets could be exposed and polished. The back self-contained area could easily be converted to a large rumpus room or parents' retreat if need be at no great cost. With the fantastic location just a few minutes walk to all amenities and the Botanic Gardens, Russell's Creek & Wollaston bridge walking/ bike trails all close by, you have everything practically at your doorstep.
