Packed with potential

The potential present in this Torrens home cannot be ignored.

According to licensed agent Gillian Thorn, of Christine Shaw Properties, 9 Kavel Street is “well worth considering” for future renovation or extension.

“It has been in the same family since it was built around 1966,” Thorn says. 

“It is an unpretentious home which has been maintained over many years to a very high standard. 


“Although the kitchen is reminiscent of the 1970s, it has a practical layout suited to the modern family unit.”

Close to Southside hubs like the Woden Town Centre and the Southlands Shopping Centre at Mawson, this home boasts location and amenity with a simple and functional floor plan.

It’s also nearby to a number of schooling options like Sacred Heart and Torrens primary schools, Marist College and Melrose High School.


The bathroom and laundry have been updated, there is ample room in the front and back yards for the kids to play, and there is ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning for year-round comfort.

Thorn says this home on its 669sqm block is ideal for “first home buyers, families with young children or a buyer who would purchase the home, rent it out for 12 months whilst they draw up their plans to renovate or extend it”.

“This is an entry level home situated on a good sized block with a northerly aspect to the front,” she says.
