Inner city living can’t get much better if you become the owner of this beautiful five-bedroom home in the tree-lined Dobbs Street in Wagga Wagga.
PRD Real Estate’s Bee Anderson says the home at 29 Dobbs Street is one in a million.
“I love this house and I don’t think I will see something like this come up again for a very long time. It’s pretty unique,” she said.
The appeal here lies in its size, location and it’s set back on the block.
“Most people don’t realise there is a house here,” said Bee.
“As soon as you open the gate though people get the wow factor. Everyone so far has said that it’s a real hidden gem.”
The double brick home has three bathrooms, various living spaces, high ceilings and wide walkways and sits on a 1340 sqm block – all contributing to the feel that you could be anywhere, not close to a regional city.
Did we mention there is a pool too?
Most of the downstairs area has been lovingly renovated and a feature is the sunlit dining room that overlooks said pool.
With summer around the corner, you might find yourself spending a fair bit of time here, or alternatively in the undercover entertainment area also beside the pool.
With the owners on the move due to new work opportunities, this red brick classic is ready to be someone else’s dream home.
Bee said there had been interest from a variety of buyers.
“This property has stirred up a lot of interest.
“We’ve had professional couples looking at it because of its location, families because of its size and also people coming in off large farm holdings looking for something that still has a bit of space but is close to convenience.”
With its proximity to Wollundry Lagoon and the Murrumbidgee River, keeping fit, walking the dog or just enjoying the great outdoors will be a breeze.
The house is also minutes from the Wagga central business district, and a “hop, skip and a jump” to the Wagga RSL Club and the Murrumbidgee Turf Club.
“This doesn’t mean that it’s noisy or a busy location,” said Bee.
“I think because you are set back on the block and surrounded by high fences and tall trees that you are protected from the sound.
“The house is so big inside that you don’t realise you are in town.”
The home is ready and waiting for occupation with not much left to do.
“Someone may be interested in renovating the upstairs bathroom and two bedrooms as they are still in their original condition,” said Bee.
“The spiral staircase may also be something that the new owner may want to change.”
PRD Wagga Wagga will have the home open for inspection on Saturday, 16 September at 10 am and it will go to auction on Saturday, 23 September.
“We are expecting a lot more interest before the auction.
“This is pretty unique in Wagga Wagga and a fairly rare sort of property to become available.”
