Small but mighty, this beautifully renovated home would suit a busy professional who hasn’t got time for gardening and loves all the benefits of city living.

Located in the well known McKinnon Street, the two-bedroom house at number 16 would suit someone who doesn’t like clutter, sales agent Bee Anderson from PRD Wagga Wagga said.

“It would suit someone who likes minimalist style,” she said.

“Everything has been renovated to a very high quality. The owners have kept the original character of the home but have had high standards when it comes to the style and finishes – they haven’t cut corners or skipped on anything.”

Inside you’ll find plantation shutters, a clean and sleek kitchen and a fresh, bright and stylish bathroom.

Outside there’s not much left to do either. The low-maintenance gardens have been landscaped and there’s space for entertaining, including an undercover area.

“The main appeal here is definitely the location and you also have rear lane access to a double garage out the back,” said Bee.

“Great for a car or two or something else like storage and there’s also extra concreted space where you could put a boat or a caravan.”

Located in a quiet pocket of Wagga, 16 McKinnon is within easy reach of local parks, the vibrant CBD and the hospital precinct. It’s a short walk to the Murrumbidgee River, and the property is close to Wollundry Lagoon and not far from the turf club.

“I can imagine a professional single or couple living here and being able to walk to work, go to cafes and restaurants on weekends and enjoy all the action. It would be a great lifestyle,” said Bee.

“The home has a supremely easy to maintain interior layout and has ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling which would make it comfortable all year round.

“I think it could also suit someone like a pastoralist who might be looking for a weekender for the time being with a view to downsizing and living in town when they move off the land.”

The property is on the market for $840,000.

“Look at that front veranda,” said Bee. “I can imagine sitting here in the morning enjoying a cup of tea or in the afternoon enjoying a wine.

“It’s a red brick charmer – I think it will be love at first sight for someone,” she said.

16 Mckinnon Street is listed for $840,000 with PRD Real Estate Wagga Wagga. To arrange an inspection contact Bee Anderson on 0415 680 892 or Ryan Smith on 0449 592 211. Don’t forget to check out all the latest listings on Zango.
