SET on a pleasant street in a quiet cul-de-sac, this delightful villa is perfect for a young couple or those looking to downsize.
A massive gum tree casts dappled shade over the neat front garden and its sunburst portulacas.
The layout of this two-bedroom, one-bathroom house is simple, and you step straight into a spacious open-plan with a soaring raked ceiling.
Overhead is a mezzanine loft, which would make a great study or library.
The solid white timber ladder can be raised if more space is needed downstairs.
Just off the living area is a generous kitchen that is spick and span, but a tad dated.
There’s plenty of space and the kitchen has good bones thanks to its many cupboards, so a makeover wouldn’t cost the earth.
When it comes to entertaining, a fenced courtyard wraps around the villa, ensuring privacy.
A door off the living area closes off the bedroom wing, which has a large bathroom and separate toilet.
Like the kitchen the spacious bathroom is a bit dated, but I really like the small blue tiles on the floor and the funky blue-and-white polka dot tiles in the shower.
The villa is on Brentham Street and has two parking spaces, but with Oxford Street and its many restaurants, boutiques and cafes within walking distance, I’d be ditching one car and investing in an electric bike.
It would also be handy for riding around the lovely Lake Monger.
