9 Lark Street,
One With the Lot - Superb Location and Great Liveability Now, Plus Future ScopeIn real estate, location is everything. Not only is Altona recognised as being one of the inner west's most progressive trending suburbs, this classic 3 bedroom weatherboard home that has been much loved by the owner's for many years is set on approximately 700sq/m of level land in the private and recluse pocket of the ever so popular 'Birdcage Estate' located to the west of central Altona. Merely a short fifteen minute stroll to the water's edge of the Altona foreshore - one of the quietest and peaceful nooks of Altona and within close proximity to Kooringal Golf Club and the daily convenience of the Somers Parade shopping strip.
The outlook to the rear yard is perfect for kids and entertaining, complete with undercover area and well established low maintenance gardens; as you head inside you'll be taken by the design appeal of the updated kitchen with inclusions such as the tiled splash back, modern appliances, while the central bathroom, built-in robes to two of the larger bedrooms and the dedicated laundry add to the home's liveability. Additional features include polished timber floors throughout, ducted gas heating, refrigerated cooling, a lovely decked entertainment area with spa and a pond full of fish, plenty of off-street parking down the long driveway and a two car tandem lock up garage.
This property offers not only comfort, immediate enjoyment and a great lifestyle today, but an almost unlimited potential for further capitalisation later on. The site and current floor plan would easily allow for improvements or extension, or the opportunity for a full redevelopment of the site and construction of a large single dwelling or multiple townhouses (all STCA...). With close proximity to city bound rail at Westona station, local primary & secondary schools, expansive parklands, your selection of either the Harrington Square Shopping strip or the Pier Street cafe & restaurant precinct and of course the beautiful Altona waterfront, inspection is essential to fully appreciate all this terrific family home has to offer.
