12 Meakin Street, watsonia north
A Brilliant Start!
A proudly maintained, family-sized home on a terrific block of 539 metres (approx.), this freestanding, 3 bedroom + study residence represents a wonderful entry to Melbourne’s housing market, with the added opportunity to introduce some of your own style whenever you are ready. The distinctive charms of the late 20th Century remain intact to present a home rich in the sort of retro chic so often craved today, all in an affordable location of family pride.
Revealing exposed brickwork and plenty of timber panelling, the home’s hub is its lounge room which is semi-attached to dining, with a relaxed flow to the kitchen. Comfortably presented with gas cooking, saloon-style doors, parquetry floors and a servery to the dining room, the kitchen overlooks an attractive backyard with established fruit trees. The potential to create an al fresco dream home here must be compelling to renovators.
Each of the bedrooms features built-in robes, in this home with a garage, a large timber bathroom, separate wc, full-size laundry and a strong sense of character. A long driveway offers parking for another 3-4 vehicles, whilst offering space for junior basketballers and skateboarders to refine their skills.
As Melbourne extends into its various growth corridors, family-friendly settings of wonderful convenience – such as this – will become increasingly valued, due to its proximity to the shops of Greensborough Plaza, effortless city-commuting via Watsonia Railway Station and easy access to the Metropolitan Ring Road.
