Serene & Stylish With A Sweeping View

Enjoying an elevated outlook over the endless treetops of Mount Cooper and Bundoora Park, this stylishly refreshed home is overflowing with potential in one of Reservoir's most peaceful parkland pockets.

First capturing that sweeping view is the spacious front lounge with both a warming gas fireplace and split system A/C ensuring year-round comfort, while the separate well-appointed kitchen and meals area offers an abundance of storage, ample bench space and modern appliances including a dishwasher.

All 3 bedrooms are carpeted, with the extra-large main sharing in the serene parkland views at the front of the home. Serving them all is the updated bathroom complete with high-quality tiling, bright lights with heater lamp, a mirrored vanity and an over-bath shower with a rainfall shower head.

Just off the kitchen is an extra guest toilet and separate laundry room with plenty of additional storage. Outdoor access leads to the extensive grassed backyard with lots of space for entertaining or for the kids to play, with its generous scope leaving room for potential additions or extensions (STCA).

Last but not least is the large garage at the rear of the block complete with roller door, lighting and all the wiring set up to be fully power connected - perfect for a home workshop or working garage for tradies and car enthusiasts.

Further features of the home include a water tank, gated side access for off-street parking, and a 5kW solar system that keeps energy bills so low by feeding back to the grid that they almost pay for themselves.

This quiet leafy-green pocket is ideal for any growing family, located just a short walk from the local park and playground as well the shops and cafes on Gertz Avenue. Direct access to the Darebin Creek Trail leads you straight through Bundoora's idyllic parklands along the Bundoora Park Golf Course.

You're close to several esteemed schools and just minutes from La Trobe University, as well as just a short drive from Reservoir Station and the central shops, restaurants, boutiques and bakeries of Reservoir Village. Bus stops are a short walk away, while easy Ring Road access makes commuting a dream.

Owners Notes

What do you love about the home?

  • We fell in love with the sense of space and greenery from the elevated front yard and the view across all of Bundoora from our front deck.
  • We bought this as a young couple and grew our family here. We updated the kitchen, laundry and bathroom over the years to suit a modern living standard, and with a refresh it looks even better than new.
  • We love the warm look and colours of the polished boards. They look beautiful again with just a light sand and three fresh coats of gloss.
  • There's a wonderful sense of everyone in the house being within reach. You can stand in the kitchen and hear the kids playing in their rooms, but it's far enough that everyone can have privacy if they want it.
  • The open rear yard gives an amazing sense of open space, but as you can see the whole yard from the window, you're never far from the action and can keep an eye on it all.
  • The new window dressings really give the rooms a sense of elegance and style, and we love the beautiful filtered light from the front windows at sunrise.

What do you love about the area?

  • One street away from the Darebin Creek Trail, and bike rides to Bundoora Park are less than 10 minutes. During lockdowns this was a blessing, and we still love going for a ride to the cafe in Bundoora Park for a coffee.
  • Walking distance to the local IGA and shopping strip for all the little shopping trips. Close access to local kinder and childcare centres, as well as local schools.
  • Close to major roads to get where you're going, but tucked away enough to not have to deal with road noise or through traffic.
  • Parklands with playgrounds and sports fields only a few blocks away.
  • Our neighbours are wonderful and friendly, and our local shops all know our names. Wonderful sense of community in this little pocket of Reservoir.
  • Short drive to the train station (Keon Park), only a block away for bus to the station (Reservoir) or tram services (Plenty Rd.)

What features does your property have?

  • 5KW solar panel means low electricity bills
  • A/C reverse cycle to keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer
  • Cosy gas heater which is our favourite place to stand during the colder months
  • 3000L water tank for watering the back garden beds with storm water overflow and drain
  • Playground for the kids, with a view from the kitchen window to keep them safe while you chat over a cuppa
  • Huge garage workshop. Comes with the workbench to get you started.
  • 2 pack kitchen with Blum hardware throughout, featured in the 2010 HIA Home Ideas Show by the award winning kitchen builder
  • 2nd toilet not far from the rear door, perfect for when you've been outside
  • Restumped, roof repainted and repointed, updated bathroom and laundry, recent fences done, wiring updated, plumbing updated. There's not much on this house that hasn't already been done.
  • Potential for the rear verandah to become a huge entertaining area with decking (there are plans available on request), or plenty of room to extend the house!
  • Wardrobe in the master bedroom has lighting and plenty of storage in the custom inserts
  • Brand new window dressings including new S-fold sheer curtains and double roller blinds

Is there anything else?

We bought our home from the original owners nearly 13 years ago. We're sad to be moving away from our family home, but it has given us a lot of amazing memories over the years.
