A 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom home on a 2008 sqm corner block within walking distance of town, schools and the Heritage Trail makes for a fabulous family home. Add a self-contained 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit and you have the flexibility of a multi-generational property.

Built in 1981, the brick and tile home sits behind a screen of established trees and rose garden. An open lounge and dining room leads through to the recently renovated kitchen and family room.

In the kitchen, electric hotplates, a dishwasher and wall oven are surrounded by new benches, deep, soft-close drawers and a breakfast bar. This bright and practical room looks out to the large, south-facing gazebo.

Adjoining the kitchen is a family room complete with a gas log fireplace. Doors to the gazebo ensure this central room will be at the heart of much of daily family life.

The large main bedroom suite features a parents’ retreat, built in robes and opens directly to the garden. Both of the junior double bedrooms include a wardrobe recess.

The well-appointed family bathroom and laundry with separate W.C. complete the floorplan of this family home.

Occupying the south-west corner of the property is a 12 m x 7 m gazebo and paved patio with built in wood barbeque. This garden-edged, outdoor entertaining zone expands the home’s living space and is sure to be the scene of many parties.

Set in a private courtyard garden at the north-east boundary of the property is a neat and light-filled, self-contained 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit. A wide deck and garden setting fashion a pretty and comfortable “home” for teens, adult children or older parents. Comprised of an open lounge/kitchen, a good sized bedroom, separate study and bathroom, this attractive space features floating timber floors in the bedroom and lounge/kitchen and north-facing windows to capture the warm winter sun.

A corner lot gives this block dual access with the entrance on Cook Street and a gate on Dargin Street opens to the drive-in workshop with 3-phase power. The home also has solar panels installed. Currently, home to a dedicated gardener, the property hosts a variety of fruit trees, a vegetable patch and well-maintained garden beds. A potting shed and frog pond complete the spacious backyard.

Situated at the top of town, it’s an easy walk to get groceries, play in the park, ride to school or stroll to dinner at the “Mounties” pub. Mount Helena is a friendly Hills community with excellent arterial road links, local doctors’ surgery, vet and primary and secondary schools.
