Investment gold or great starter home in Tivoli
Enjoy a strong rental income with this classic Ipswich home, or grab the opportunity to update and enjoy a fantastic first home in peaceful Spresser Street. Just a five minute drive to Ipswich City Centre, or 35 minutes to the Brisbane CBD, this is a location that puts the best of South East Queensland right on your doorstep.
This smart brick and timber high-set home perches proudly on 478 square metres of land. A double-carport provides great space for vehicles, while on foot you can enter through the wooden gate into the cute front garden. Ascending the stairway, you enter into the tranquil house itself – a useful study or kids play area bathed in natural light opens out to the left. In front of you there is a large and airy lounge-room. You will be delighted with the stylish polished-timber floor, while the air-conditioning unit and ceiling-fan offer comfort throughout the year.
Moving further into the hub of the home is a neat, functional kitchen and informal dining area. This is a great space and any keen interior designer will appreciate the potential to update and value-add here – a contemporary kitchen-diner will really transform the whole house.
Stepping up wooden stairs you will find the three bedrooms privately tucked away to the side of the home. The large first bedroom has delightful timber floors underfoot, a cooling ceiling-fan and plenty of natural light, while overlooking the lush front garden. Bedroom two is also a good size, benefitting from a ceiling-fan and with a lovely view over the green rear garden.
The Master bedroom is large and inviting, with the bonus of an air-conditioning unit and again flooded with natural light. Liveable as is, these bedrooms could also be given a new lease of life with just cosmetic changes. Serviced by a large bathroom in original condition – including a big bath-tub, large linen storage and a separate toilet – there is again a great opportunity to update and reap the rewards.
Heading out of the dining area through secure sliding doors, there is a cosy back deck that overlooks the stunning and expansive back garden. Mostly laid to lawn, this broad and green space will be perfect for backyard cricket, letting the kids and pets run loose, entertaining friends, or enjoying a summer barbeque. The garden is very quiet, fully fenced and has a garden shed to help any green-thumbs!
Returning to the ground level of the house you will find a laundry room and then the large, secure double garage. There is a mass of space here either for an extra vehicle, storage for bigger items, or for use as a workshop.
Positioned just minutes to of Ipswich North State Primary and Ipswich State High Schools, and with easy access to the Gold Coast beaches for those summer weekends away, this house could be the perfect first home. Or if you are looking to build up your property portfolio, this is an excellent rental investment, currently renting for $300 per week until February 2022.
