Solid as a rock, the home's pristine interior showcases four main bedrooms (all with built-in robes) and study/fifth bedroom, master ensuite and two further bathrooms - all with floor-to-ceiling tiles. Versatile living zones include a central lounge/dining room, open family/meals area and adjoining kitchen with gas cooktop and breakfast bar. Other features include ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, ducted vacuum, high ceilings, excellent storage spaces throughout and internally-accessed double garage. Add to this full-width front and rear balconies and back patio (all undercover), an expansive backyard with a range of established fruit trees, plus a large under-house cellar and additional tandem double garage/workshop via ROW. A short stroll to Northcote Station and choice of tram lines, it's also walking distance to High Street shops and cafes, Merri Creek trails and parkland, as well as Northcote Primary School and Northcote High School (zoned).
