Before you read, best news in,
“NAB chief economist Alan Oster said there were clear expectations among property analysts that the WA market would improve relative to the rest of the country over the next two years.
“In WA, where the local housing market has under-performed relative to the Eastern States after the mining investment slowdown, house prices are expected to rebound and grow 1.3 per cent,” he said.
Experts surveyed by NAB believe Armadale, Bentley, central Perth and Scarborough look the best prospects in the city.”
This lovely 4 bedroom brick and tile family 1970s home, sitting on 814 m2 of land on a corner block with park opposite, has 2 living rooms, utility room, storeroom/workshop, covered patio and fair sized, partially paved, fenced garden with 2 sheds.
It is ripe for development in this up and coming area, which has had a lot of money spent on infrastructure of late. However, it’s also in excellent condition to be lived in as a large family home for many years to come. It’s priced top of its price estimation because it is top of the range…not long ago I could have sold it for $390,000 so the price drop to $355,000 is substantial!
It needs to be snapped up quickly before I put it back on the market to rent!
It’s located in Armadale’s “Golden Triangle” area beneath Mt Nasura (but with none of the same fire risks) and zoned R25/40 which means it can be developed now or in the future.
It is a few minutes walk from Sherwood Train Station and it takes less than 5 minutes to drive to Armadale town centre and Armadale Hospital. The pleasant town of Kelmscott, the hill village of Roleystone and Mt Nasura is also close.
But the best part, with improved road systems, Armadale is no longer too far out of Perth or Fremantle with it only taking close to 1/2 hr to drive to both, as well as the nearest lovely beach south of Fremantle, complete with a park with bbq, cycle tracks and jetty for fishing along with the pelicans 🙂 What you do get with Armadale though is much more for less money and that’s why the area will always hold strong.
Schools abound close by, and amenities on top of the many in Armadale’s recently developed shopping complex, include Champion Lakes, a public swimming pool, riding schools and more are all close by. Being in the ‘Golden Triangle’ means easy access to the delights of the hills which start to rise just 5 minutes up the road, with their farms, vineyards, art galleries, dams, restaurants, hotels, cafes and miles of national forest to explore.
Up until 2016, the house had the same wonderful tenants for nearly 13 years who looked after it as their own, doing landscaping and home renovation work on a continuing basis, repainting the home a number of times, putting in new carpet, polishing floorboards and generally maintaining it to a high standard.
The current tenants’ lease is about to come to an end and as they are not renewing thanks to moving, I am taking this opportunity to put it on the market. Let me know if you are interested in viewing the property as soon as possible as it won’t be on the market for long.
If you want to buy in an area that will always be attractive to first home buyers and people wanting more for less money, then this well presented and preserved house in the Armadale/Kelmscott area, on land that can be developed, is definitely the one!
