The typical NT digs at 56 Mcinnis Circuit is on a vast 1560sq m block with a grand near new saltwater in-ground pool out the back surrounded by lush tropical gardens on a quiet street.
Selling agent Daniel Harris of Real Estate Central is asking for bidding from $450,000 when the home goes under the hammer on August 20.
The median house price for houses in Driver is an affordable $417,500 according to realestate.com.au with values currently trending up.
“Triple the size of many Palmerston blocks at 1560 sqm, it has subdivision potential written all over it,” Mr Harris said in the marketing material.
“It’s a very unique home that offers plenty of positive for families and those visiting with caravans as there’s just so much space on the big block,” he said.
“And that pool is something special. It’s about $50,000 worth of pool so it’s a pretty spectacular addition,” he added.
Over two storeys, the residence features flexible living options with a modern kitchen, open plan living and dining area, deck and airconditioning throughout.
In the kitchen there is an island bench with an integrated cook top plus lots of storage.
Although built in 1983, much of the home has been updated and it features a fresh colour scheme with timber floorboards, louvred windows and ceiling fans.
Underneath the house there is a self-contained apartment, ideal for when family and friends visit, or even for earning a little extra income.
Sitting in a quiet circuit, the substantial family home is a five-minute drive from Palmerston CBD, is close to several primary schools, the Palmerston Golf Course and is 20kms from the centre of Darwin.
The property also features large level lawns, loads of space for cars, boats, caravans and trailers and is fully-fenced.
The property is scheduled to go to auction on Tuesday August 20.
