142 Murray Rd Preston VIC 3072
Here is a rock-solid, clinker-brick classic - a three-bedroom home set in the middle of 698sqm (approx.) of blossoming gardens and lush lawns and surrounded by everything a family needs.
That's shopping (from Northland Shopping Centre to trendy Preston Market), schools, transport and green space at every point of the compass.
Lovingly - and sympathetically - upgraded in recent years, the home now features exposed timber floorboards throughout, making it a seamless transition from room to room and keep going out the door to the delightful alfresco decking all set up for family gatherings or full-on entertainment.
As well as the spacious bedrooms, there is an equally spacious kitchen at the heart of the home, while the formal lounge occupies that traditional pride of place at the front.
During the renovations, a study has been introduced next to the third bedroom at the quieter rear of the home. The bright bathroom is centrally positioned with a separate toilet in the laundry, while the side driveway goes through to the large and attractive north-facing back garden.
Other welcome touches include ducted heating, split-system air-conditioning, two showers, two toilets, continuous flow hot water, garden shed, small utility shed, 3,000-litre rain water tank and three-metre high ceilings in most areas of the home.
Set inside the Preston High School catchment area, properties such as this have that something irresistible about them: a sense of a solid past and a bright future for the next lucky owners
