And the irony is, now that the three children have grown up, it's the large, established grounds that are the driving force behind the sale! The vendor is quite clear, if this home had half the site she'd be happy to stay, particularly given the privacy and location.
The home is easy to live in with its north and west facing living room, opening on to the delightful alfresco outdoor areas which are perfect for family barbecues and entertaining on those long, lazy Richmond evenings.
The kitchen and open plan dining area have windows facing directly towards the rising sun, which ensures that your breakfast coffee is always enjoyed in the perfect environment, setting you up positively for the day!
There's three generous bedrooms, and a remarkably large family bathroom (in comparison to other homes of this era).
The property is located at the end of a long private driveway keeping the home well away from the road, ideal for children and pets. The driveway is lined with a selection of espalier apples and pears, proudly bearing fruit today! There is plenty of off street parking, and the house looks timeless set against the established grounds, with trees and gardens creating a tranquil and ambient environment which would be a place that you would be proud to call home.
The vendor has chosen to take a 'warts and all' approach to selling this property... she could have easily painted over some bumps and bruises, fixed the broken tile in the kitchen and pretended that it was a brand new home, however she feels that offering the property in its extremely clean, tidy and much loved condition, affords new owners the opportunity to get into Richmond at an affordable price, whilst ensuring that the home can evolve and grow with its new owners.
I've left some of the extra features for you to discover, so make sure you get to the open home... it may be the last!
Vendor reserve $529,000.
