Here is a charming little cottage tucked away in a peaceful cul-de-sac right in the heart of Wagga.

44 Evans Street is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home that epitomises charm and convenience.

Ray White agent Isaac Kane revealed what he found attractive about the property – its street appeal.

“The street appeal is fantastic, and it’s a nice, neat little property,” Isaac said.

“It’s the Australian dream home complete with a white picket fence.

“While it’s only a two-bedroom home, it does suit for further development because of its location.”

Positioned close to shops, schools, and public transport and adjacent to the racecourse, this property offers an excellent forever home and a solid investment opportunity.

“It is within walking distance to Central,” Isaac said. “But it is located in a cul-de-sac; it is nice, quiet, and has no major thoroughfares. The property is perfect for tradies, families, investors, anyone.”

Isaac said he had received great feedback on the property within a day of it going on the market.

“Buyers love the look and the location of the property and what it has to offer.”

The land the cottage sits on was subdivided in July 1912 and was part of the Parish of South Wagga Wagga, County of Wynyard. The home was built in 1957.

The fresh, renovated cottage features a welcoming front patio with ample space for an outdoor setting and a spacious backyard.

The home combines original features with modern conveniences, creating a perfect blend of character and functionality.

“As you enter the home, you’ve got the main living area on the left-hand side with a gas fire with a stone feature wall,” Isaac said.

“There’s split system heating and cooling throughout the property.

The property has plush carpeted bedrooms, and the sizable bathroom boasts a separate bath, shower, and toilet.

“On the opposite side of the living area is the good-sized main bedroom,” Isaac said.

“The wide hallway looks all the way down through the house to the backyard.”

The large kitchen with stone-top benches, a freestanding gas stove, stainless steel dishwasher, and generous storage is a culinary enthusiast’s delight.

The light-filled dining area with a sliding glass door overlooks the beautifully established garden.

“At the back end of the home, you have the second bedroom on the left-hand side and the opposite side, you’ve got your wet areas, including laundry, main bathroom, and toilet,” Isaac said.

The rear-covered patio is an entertainer’s haven with paved paths, a grassy play area, a firepit, and built-in seating.

The expansive backyard of the 600-sqm block also features a double lock-up powered shed with rear lane access, a shade house for gardening enthusiasts, and an attached single roller-door carport for secure parking.

The property is leased at $460/week until January 2025.

“It would be perfect for an investor as they already have great tenants there,” Isaac said.

“It is a pretty rare opportunity to secure a block in Central for this sort of price with the potential upside for future development and growth of the area.”

44 Evans Street Wagga Wagga has an inspection scheduled for Saturday, 10 February, from 11 to 11:30 am.
