CONCEALED underneath this Westleigh residence is a rare feature that has been impressing buyers searching for storage.
The under house area is completely accessible and described as the “ultimate man cave”. This surprise space, is in addition to the home’s double-lock-up garage and workshop.
“The owner had literally tiled all underneath the house — it is a huge area — it is every man’s dream under there,”said agent Ingrid Stewart from McGrath Berowra.
“It is a fabulous space — better than I have ever seen.”
Positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac and close to parklands, the 774 sqm property at 8 Colin Place offers a relaxed setting for family living with large level front and rear gardens.
Much loved by its vendors, this is the first time the home has been listed on the market in 47 years. It has a price guide of $1.2m to $1.3m.
The rear garden also includes a covered entertainment area, a separate barbecue shelter plus an aviary. Inside, the interior is light-filled split level interior with polished floor boards and neutral colour scheme.
Four bedrooms with built-in wardrobes are located on the upper level of the house. The master retreat has its own ensuite.
There is also potential to create in-law accommodation as the downstairs rumpus, which features a slow combustion fireplace, also has its own kitchen and bathroom.
The home still retains its ‘70s style kitchen which is in remarkable condition and leads out to a balcony overlooking the rear of the property.
“The upstairs kitchen really was for show as most of the cooking was done by the family downstairs, so although it is dated it is pristine condition as it was hardly used,” Ms Stewart said.
