LET’S face it, strata levies are a real pain in the neck.
So it’s nice this free-standing townhouse in Maylands doesn’t have any, allowing you to spend your money on more luxurious things like wine, shows and slap-up meals.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, there’s plenty of space in this abode and you won’t be queuing for the bathroom every morning (“Dad, let me in!”).
In a slightly unusual design quirk, the living area, kitchen and main ensuite bedroom are on the top floor, and the remaining bedrooms, family bathroom and laundry downstairs.
Good if you have older kids and want distinct living areas or when family and friends come to stay.
One advantage is the lovely views you have in the living area with treetops punctuating the blue sky.
This is a spacious, relaxing area with classy wooden floors and a neutral colour scheme.
I like how you are high up and slightly removed from any noise outside, which would ensure a good sleep in the main bedroom.
All the bedrooms have the same classy look as the living area with a neutral colour scheme and wooden floors.
The bathrooms and kitchen are functional and look okay, but you’d probably want to update them at some point.
There’s plenty of space out the back with a paved private courtyard with a temporary gazebo.
It’s a bit of a blank canvas and could be brought to life with some large colourful pots and plants.
The good news is the infrastructure is sound and you just need to add the confectioner’s sugar.
Storage won’t be a problem with a garden shed and single garage lock-up, with more tandem parking out the front.
Part of a boutique complex of only five townhouses on Ninth Avenue, you are close to the all the restaurants, cafes and shops on Beaufort Street and Guildford Road.
There’s also lots of great parks and reserves nearby and the Swan River foreshore is only a short walk away.
This is a cute townhouse in a great locale.
