The new owner will be able to relax on the swinging chair located on a corner of the front veranda. The 1922 sqm property, which has just hit the market with a price guide of $1.185m, is also close to the town centre creating potential as holiday rental or permanent residence.
“It a beautiful block and there is not a cent to spend,” said agent Di Dixon from Belle Property Bowral.
“It would be perfect as an Air B&B because of it is walking distance into the Moss Vale township which is a mecca now for homeware stores as well as fine dining.”
The interior has a distinctive Southern Highlands style with timber flooring, a barn door and neutral colour scheme. There is no shortage of luxuries with heated floors and towel rail in the bathroom.
The open plan living and dining area adjoins the galley style kitchen which features 40mm stone counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
A true extension of the home’s living space is its extra large rear deck, which can be accessed by twin double-glazed bi-fold doors.
“It just has all this really lovely sunshine across the back deck — it really is the best physical feature of the house,” Ms Dixon said.
Carpets in the bedrooms and zoned ducted gas central heating will keep the property snug in the cooler months.
The pretty and low maintenance gardens has a fully dog meshed fenced and is gated.
Ms Dixon said property is ideal for downsizers or an investor wanting a weekend retreat that could also be used as a holiday rental.
It has also current and DA approved extension plans which will be available to the new owner.
