Cozy Investor or First Home Buyer Special


Here's our top pick for investors or first home buyers! This well-situated property gifts an affordable opportunity to secure a foot in the market or explore potential rental income opportunities. Having just had a fresh update, this cozy home is ready to embrace you as its new owners with modern comfort. Whether you're seeking a tranquil retreat, a first or investment home, or an exciting project, this home has the versatility you need.

Nestled in a quiet, yet convenient location in a family-oriented neighbourhood, this freshly updated home offers a myriad of possibilities. Families will love the park and playground at the end of the street, while Newcastle Uni is only minutes away.

Step inside and relish the inviting and light-filled interior, which is freshly painted and boasts a good-sized living and dining. The rooms are bathed in north-eastern light, with an air-conditioner and fan for your comfort, offering plenty of room for entertaining family and friends. Adjacent, a newly installed kitchen with brand-new stainless-steel appliances is ready for you to unleash your inner chef.

Three restful bedrooms include fresh carpets and fans and share a bright family bathroom with a new vanity and toilet, complementing the full-sized bath and shower.

While it's cozy and comfortable to enjoy today, and rentable too, with properties this close to the University in very high demand, this home's orientation and property size lends itself to a number of enticing options. New owners may wish to extend the home, either up or out (STCA). A second-floor extension could possibly present you with views of greenery stretching all the way to Mt Sugarloaf, while the addition of a deck overlooking the spacious backyard would be ideal for entertaining. Fancy yourself a bit of a gardener? You could do amazing things with this garden space – think raised vegetable gardens, productive fruit trees or a flourishing flower garden. Alternatively, the property features a wide approx 22-metre frontage with dual access that could suit the installation of a granny flat (STCA).

For families with children, there's a choice of either Shortland Primary or Our Lady of Victories only 500 metres away as well as Callaghan College and the Uni a few minutes' drive. Cook Park, just a few doors down, is a hit with the kids with its inviting playground and expansive oval. Shopping becomes a breeze with convenient access to both Jesmond Central and Wallsend Village. Lastly, the central position of this address offers a seamless commute to the Valley and other major arterial routes.

– A cozy and freshly updated home boasting a freshly painted interior and abundant natural light throughout.
