LOCATION, POTENTIAL AND RENTAL INCOME
Set above road, at the top of a tree-lined driveway that gently slopes to reveal the main house, this large four bedroom Berea West home offers a convenient location, with easy access to the M13, and two self-contained flatlets with rental income potential. The main house features four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, study, large kitchen, dining room, two lounges, bar, a covered entertainment patio, terraced garden and swimming pool. The driveway leads directly to the main house and boasts four garages, four carports and ample parking for visiting friends and family.
As you walk past the Bottlebrush tree in the paved front courtyard, you are presented with a beautiful, old stained glass door which opens into the entrance hall. Hardwood floors and a tongue and groove ceiling immediately catches the eye, as a short set of stairs lead you down into the sunken formal lounge.
This living area is bright and airy, with vaulted ceilings and large glass sliding doors that open onto the covered patio that overlooks the newly fiberglassed swimming pool and tree-lined garden. The second set of sliding doors leads into the bar and second lounge, which is generously spaced with low lighting - ideal for a cinema room where the family can spend a relaxing night in, watching movies.
To the right of the entrance hall, the mirror-walled dining room boasts hardwood flooring, a serving hatch and is conveniently located adjacent to the massive kitchen. With wooden cupboards and large walk-in pantry, this kitchen offers ample storage and has enough space for a kitchen dining area. A set of French doors opens out onto the paved courtyard, allowing loads of natural light to pour in. For those who love to cook, a ceramic hob and double eye-level oven make this a room the ideal place to test out new recipes.
For those needing a quiet place to read or work, the home also offers a study that overlooks the entrance courtyard and boasts a wood burning fireplace.
Down a well-lit passageway, secured by a Trellidor gate at night, you will find all four of the bedrooms. The three family bedrooms are bright and spacious - all featuring large windows, ceiling fans and built-in cupboards. One of the rooms is currently being used as a crafts or sewing room - adding to the unlimited potential of this home. The newly fitted family bathroom is neat and features both a bath and shower.
The well sized Master Bedroom boasts its own private patio that overlooks the garden - making it an ideal place to watch the sunrise and enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee at the start of the day. A wall of built-in cupboards, air conditioning, and full modern ensuite bathroom - tops off this spacious room.
At the front of the property, you will find two self-contained flatlets that offer loads of potential. With a little bit of work and modernisation, they could be used as a home office, provide accommodation for your extended family, or generate a rental income to subsidise your bond. The first cottage is a one bedroom, one bathroom unit with an open-plan kitchenette and lounge that leads off to private courtyard. The second unit is fully fenced and boasts two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, dining room, lounge and its very own double garage.
