Delightfully distinguished in Downer

Nestled amongst the trees on a level, 777sqm block, the sophisticated 45 Legge Street in Downer is the perfect pad for a number of buyers.

The home has been extended and renovated and is ready for its new owners to walk in and settle down without having to spend a cent.

LJ Hooker Dickson franchise owner Stephen Bunday says the “beautiful” renovation and extension work was done by a local builder and has only just been finished, giving it the feeling of a brand-new build.

“It’s energy efficient – double glazed windows, solar panels, 5-star rating – and has been done extremely tastefully,” he says.

“It has a brand-new home feel.”

Standout features include high, vaulted ceilings, herringbone flooring and natural light due to the home’s northerly aspect and heavenly skylights.

With more than 200sqm of living space, 45 Legge Street boasts an open-plan living area that overlooks the entertaining deck, as well as a separate lounge room for the kids or as a parents’ retreat. The main bedroom enjoys separation from the other bedrooms and boasts an opulent ensuite with luxury fixtures and fittings such as underfloor heating, which is also present in the main bathroom.


Outside, the luxury features continue with automated irrigation, a sunken patio area with firepit and an electric vehicle charging station, alongside the two-car garage with internal access.

“The home could easily suit young families or even downsizers as it’s all on one level, fully landscaped and has very manageable gardens,” Bunday says.

“It’s located not far from the light rail and a short walk to the buzzing Dickson precinct as well as the local Downer shops.”
