Ya Gotta Love These 1960s Homes

  • 1 Car

The 1950s and 60s were great times for new home construction. Houses of the era were robust and distinctly recognisable featuring purply coloured foundation bricks, Midland cream wall bricks in a ‘triple-front’ design, clay roof tiles and fluted, varnished blonde wood timber front doors. The period may have been a little austere, according to some, but they were generous times with higher ceilings, larger room dimensions and used lots of natural timber in floors and mouldings. Always popular with buyers.

The house features a large lounge room with gas room heater and is brightly lit from a wide, street facing window. Also features 4 bedrooms, 2 with built-in robes and all with new carpets. Although two of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and one has a room air conditioner, the whole house has ducted evaporative air conditioning. Another feature is the stunning bathroom, renovated in recent times incorporating a 2nd toilet.

The galley style kitchen is overflowing with cupboard space, has a new looking electric stove and range-hood fan, Bosch dishwasher and water filter. Pass the prepared food from the kitchen, through the servery, to the hungry mouths sitting at the dining table in the adjacent area. This zone has a room air conditioner, view through a large window of the rear lawned area and direct access to the rear patio.

As if this house doesn’t have enough cupboards in the kitchen, laundry and bedrooms, there are 2 large linen presses, one at either end of the long passageway that links the bedrooms. The laundry contains the original toilet, has a door to the rear patio and includes a Hoover clothes dryer.

Good quality Super6 or Colorbond fencing encloses the rear yard of this 938sqm block. There’s a gateway access into the side laneway that services the property. Hot water heating is supplied by an electric storage unit, there are security grills on doors and windows, auto reticulation to feed the lawns and gardens and a roller door, lockup single garage under the main roof.

No 1 Lawley Avenue has been in one family ownership for over 50 years, has been loved and meticulously cared for and holds many happy memories. Now it is time to say goodbye and let another family enjoy all it has to offer. It’s fairly and reasonably priced at $289 000 and will be a big hit with prospective buyers. Please call Steve or Nikki to arrange an inspection.
