Set on a wonderfully wide allotment (approx 18.28m), this mid-century home benefits from a range of tasteful enhancements both inside and out to deliver a turn-key lifestyle of exceptional quality, privacy and urban practicality. Beyond the immaculate front garden and attractive facade, discover a light-filled interior comprising three bedrooms (two large with BIRs) serviced by a contemporary-style central bathroom and additional (second) WC. Adding to the appeal is a spacious and versatile front living room together with an open meals area to the rear accompanied by a well-appointed kitchen complete with stainless steel cooking appliances. Other highlights of this captivating home include solid hardwood floors, full-size internal laundry, as well as ducted heating and evaporative cooling for all-seasons comfort. Step outside to enjoy the undercover entertaining deck overlooking a wonderfully wide north-facing backyard with lush lawn, established perimeter gardens and high fences all-round for exceptional privacy, plus an oversized carport with remote-control rollerdoor accessed via the gated side driveway. Walking distance to the bus stop (corner of Invermay Street), local parks and endless Darebin Creek trails, it's also close to primary and secondary schools, as well as easy access to Ruthven Station, Broadway's popular cafes and thriving retail precinct.

What we love about this home:
We purchased this property 8 years ago because of the warm and inviting weatherboard home, with original hardwood floorboards throughout, its northerly rear aspect, its proximity to public transport, and proximity Broadway Shopping Centre and the Preston Market.
The large front yard has an established fruiting apricot tree, a nectarine tree, and a fertile vegetable patch, that has provided us with nourishing food for our family. The vegetable patch has also been a point of conversation with our neighbours.
Throughout the year the back-entertaining deck and garage space has often been used for entertaining family and friends. The private backyard has a large established fig tree, grown from a cutting from my grandmother’s house, and three established olive trees.
We have really enjoyed living an indoor/outdoor lifestyle in this house.
What we love about this suburb:
Reservoir has been a fantastic place to live with many parks and playgrounds (including Leslie Reserve, Norris Bank Reserve and Bundoora Park within walking distance), convenient access to Preston Market, and the Broadway and High Street shopping precincts, with diverse food and friendly people. Hickford Street is a quiet street and we've met amazing neighbours who we consider friends, and often spend time with. The 552-bus line, which takes you directly to Reservoir station, is within walking distance, providing easy access to multiple transport options. The city can be reached by car within 25 minutes.
Why we are selling:
We are moving to the Mornington Peninsula and have decided to sell in Reservoir to purchase a family home there.
