It’s not often that RZ3 opportunities become available. And it is even less often that they are the quality of this home in such a prime location.

For developers, this site offers a 65% plot ratio providing a range of development options. This is further enhanced by the impressive $5,500 - $6,000 monthly return as an Airbnb (even during Covid).

Live in or reap the benefits of positive cash-flow and further growth, while the Development Application process is undertaken.

For owner-occupiers, this beautiful family home offers an amazing location on the doorstep of the vibrant Dickson Group Centre and Dickson Village development. And only 10 minutes from the city centre, whilst still providing a peaceful retreat for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

The impressive 205sqm layout is light-filled and open-plan with multiple living spaces that spill out to terraces and decks for a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The hub of the home is the kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of storage and prep space, looking over the family and dining room.

Gorgeous timber floors flow underfoot and you can step out to the covered deck or into either the elegant living room or the relaxed sunroom. The bedrooms are all housed in their own wing along with the main bedroom that features a spacious adjoining dressing room. The updated bathroom and two separate toilets, service the home and there is also an abundance of storage throughout.

The long list of extra features includes quality window furnishings throughout, downlights, gas infinity hot water, reverse cycle air-conditioning and new ducted gas heating.There is a double garage with attached workshop, as well as a separate laundry with external access to complete the layout, while a fence and mature, established gardens envelopes the property to ensure complete privacy.
