Moving into a home that is not a recent build can sometimes involve a lot of renovation work, but there will be no need to prepare this home. The fully renovated, delightfully styled family home at 23 Florey Drive in Macgregor needs no further work and is ready to move in.
The home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, an established garden with mature trees, and is located just 10 minutes from seven different primary and secondary schools, making it an ideal choice for families with school-aged children.
The home is also close to major supermarkets, shops, medical practices and has easy access to Southern Cross Drive for the morning commute.
The home has been updated with fresh paint, stylish lighting, bamboo timber flooring, renovated bathrooms, and immaculate landscaping and decking on both the front and the back of the home.
Entering the home into the smaller of the two living areas, the kitchen is to the right, and the larger lounge room is up a small flight of stairs, as is the master bedroom suite on the split-level upper floor.
The large lounge room has a cozy combustion heater, and the exposed beams have been painted white to lessen their impact and lift the light in the room to create a beautiful ambience.
The home has a pergola-covered alfresco dining area, with decking extending into the landscaped garden, providing a sun-lovers’ paradise for summertime, and a fire-pit for winter evenings. Deep green feature walls give the home a stylish character, and the galley kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and plenty of pan drawers for all your kitchen and dining equipment.
The home chef will be delighted with the five-burner gas cooktop and stone benchtops in the fully renovated kitchen, and the dining room at the far end of the kitchen ensures chefs stay connected with guests while cooking. A workstation has also been included in the kitchen design, allowing parents to multitask with the kids and their homework pre-meal times.
The bedrooms are all spacious, with the master bedroom on the upper floor complete with ensuite and built-in robes.
There are three bedrooms downstairs, with a family bathroom, a separate toilet, a laundry, and a storage area under the stairs. The fourth bedroom could easily serve as a home office, or a homework or hobby room, with the other two bedrooms downstairs large enough for double beds, and with built-in robes. Both bathrooms have been tastefully renovated.
Independent Inner North sales agent Fiona Murray is excited about the home’s potential, and its ideal location in Macgregor.
“I think this home is a perfect family home,” said Ms Murray.
“The floorplan is really flexible, the garden is just beautiful, with apricots, cherries, loquats, apple and fig trees, and a herb garden. There’s a chicken coop as well. You could almost be self-sufficient in the middle of suburbia.
“A lot of care and thought has gone into updating the home with the current owners ensuring the garden is low maintenance and has a watering system which connects to mains and a 2700 litre water tank, and the landscaping in the yard is perfect for outdoor entertaining.”
The home’s north-facing windows are double glazed to keep the summer sun from creating heat in the room, and it is a five-minute walk to the Kippax Shopping Centre.
The home has RZ2 Zoning permission, meaning the block can be subdivided and sold as separate titles, and it will be auctioned on 30 January 2021.
