SOLD Great Investment Property or First Home

We love it when these types of properties come our way as we have seen many examples over the years of what the next owners have done in creating great environmental property.

This property was purchased for many of its key features and ‘good bones’ but for numerous reasons a retrofit was not implemented.

Earlier owners built the wing, including separate electricity metering, for extended dependent family granny flat style living. This has its own entrance so can be used for multiple purposes – home based business, income stream, extended family, 2 groups or families sharing the property.

This wing provides an excellent L shaped building and takes advantage of many north and western facing (brick) walls perfect for growing in the cool climate of Bowral.

This north and west facing rear of the property provides ideal opportunity for solar HWS, installation of PV system that of course could be grid connected.

The living areas and deck outdoor all maximize this northern aspect for both privacy, sun and light, family living and entertaining.

The L shape means the front east west building has the 2 bedrooms and bathroom, living room, kitchen, playroom/study and then out to the back verandah and laundry.

The north south wing has a bedroom and sitting room as well as kitchenette and own full bathroom. Separate entrance to the street as well as doors to the rest of the house.

Lots of opportunities too to increase insulation, improve passive design features as you update the home, nothing of which needs to be done immediately. You can live happily and build your asset over time.

With only a small front garden and a carport and driveway on the side, most of the land is available for garden and food production.

From the house, maximizing the northern end of the land is a large gentle sweep down to the bottom fence, perfect for lots of playtime, vegetables, chook yard, hothouse, shed, fruit trees and maybe even another small building such as a studio. The slope also provides some neighbourhood views and out to Mt Gibralter.

Fencing is secure, privacy assured, a family- friendly neighbourhood.

NBN installed.
Gas heating and hot water service.
Approx 902m2.

Being on the east side of Bowral easy access to Mittagong, and 50 minutes to the Coast, less than 90 minutes to Sydney, less than 2 hours to Canberra.

The house has tenants who may be willing to stay on if you are looking for an investment property or are unable to relocate to Bowral by the time of settlement.

Inspections by appointment.

Open Days may also be scheduled. Please contact our NSW Office for the all the details.
