Blank canvas awaits those seeking to capitalise on untapped potential

2 1 2

Neat as a pin, this picture perfect weatherboard, brick and tile cottage framed by large trees in sought-after New Lambton is ready for its next chapter. In original condition, it is packed with untapped potential for the first-home buyer or investor to realise.

Featuring a traditional two-bedroom layout, the kitchen, dining and living could be transformed into a modern, multifunctional open-plan space simply by knocking out walls. The tidy, liveable bathroom could be left until last while you reimagine the rest of the home.

An enclosed alfresco leads to a paved patio and a level, grassed backyard with a single-car garage and adjoining carport, making it ideal for backyard barbecues. Rear lane access to the property makes this home a rare find with added flexibility.

Centrally located in a family-friendly suburb, just a short drive from Westfield Kotara and 10 minutes to Newcastle CBD and some of the best beaches on offer, this home ticks all the boxes for convenience and lifestyle with scope to make it your own.
