37 PARKVILLE ST, RICHMOND
3 beds, 1 bath, 0 cars
The location of this three-bedroom Edwardian weatherboard cottage makes it a perfect home for a young family, still with all the attractions of inner-city living.
The single-fronted property is in the sought-after Burnley pocket of Richmond, close to Burnley Park and the fairways of Burnley Golf Course, with a short stroll to the Yarra River, restaurants and retail.
The residence sits on an easy-to-maintain allotment of around 201sqm, with a private bricked courtyard.
The spacious open plan living area features Baltic pine floors along with sliding doors that open onto the outdoor entertaining area.
A timber benchtop is a feature in the contemporary kitchen, with ample storage, stainless steel appliances and gas cooktop completing the light-filled meals area.
Generously proportioned, the bedrooms are carpeted and include built-in robes in one and a feature fireplace in another.
The central bathroom is light and bright, with a separate rear laundry. The home also features split-system heating and cooling.
Biggin and Scott agent Steve Harris said the residence had been home to the vendor for 21 years and he loved his time there.
"The Burnley pocket is a special area of Richmond and is very family-orientated and sought-after by younger families for that reason," he said.
The home offers modern finishes and style, with still room to be able to adapt to better suit individual needs, if required. There is even scope to add an additional level at the rear, subject to council approval.
It is only a short walk to trams on Swan St, Burnley train station, as well as restaurants, bars and shopping options. The home is listed for auction on August 27.
PRICE GUIDE: $1.25m to $1.3m
