Combining a low-maintenance home with spacious bedrooms and an outdoor area great for kids, 2B Challenger Place in Melville is a great home for a busy family.
Built in 2006, the two-storey home is located down a quiet lane with plenty of privacy.
Entering the home, guests pass by a generously sized living room before walking into an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area.
Edison McGrath Residential Sales Consultant Aaron Katin said the home would attract several types of buyers.
“We think young families or families with one or two older children, professional couples, downsizers or empty nesters – anyone looking for a great lifestyle which is close to everything and close to the river,” he said.
Describing the home as modern and contemporary with a functional layout, Mr Katin said the design allowed for open-plan living with some separation as well.
“You walk in through the main front door and to the right there’s a staircase leading up to the bedrooms and bathrooms with some high windows letting in some nice natural light,” he said.
“Continuing down the hallway, you have a living area to the left before reaching the main living, dining and kitchen zone which leads out to an alfresco.”
The outdoor area boasts modern timber decking, a large lawn space and a paddle pool water feature, making the home great for entertaining guests of all ages.
For those with kids or those who are working from home, a handy space next to the stairs is a great study area or office setup – big enough to fit a small desk and drawers without having to sacrifice a bedroom.
Mr Katin said the current owners had made many improvements to the home over time.
“The paint, timber flooring, air-conditioning, ceiling fans and grass area are all new,” he said, adding that the double garage and the home’s location are some of the additional features of the property.
“It’s got some nice natural light going through it and is in a great location, neighbourhood and community.
“Even though it’s a strata lot, there’s no strata fees or anything like that.”
Within walking distance to several amenities, Mr Katin said it was hard to beat.
“You’re walking distance to a gourmet deli, cafes, restaurants, a butcher, a medical centre, Coles Woolworths and IGA,” he said.
“You have easy access to public transport and it is a short bike ride down to Point Walter Reserve, where you can paddleboard, kayak and cycle with the kids.
“It is also close to Mel Maria Catholic Primary School and Melville Senior High School, and you’re not far from Freo.”
