Nestled on the serene shores of Lake Albert, this exclusive waterfront home is a rare opportunity in a tightly held neighbourhood.

In one of Wagga’s most prestigious and esteemed streets, 23 Lakeside Drive stands as a beacon of opulent and modern living.

Fitzpatricks Real Estate sales consultant/director Shaun Lowry said the major highlights of the property were its location and the renovations.

“Location is No. 1. I particularly like the easterly aspect of Lakeside Drive and it’s a very sought-after street,” Shaun said.

Built in the early to mid-1970s, the property hasn’t had many owners.

“This is a rare opportunity, as houses on Lakeside Drive don’t transact very often,” Shaun said.

“To be able to purchase a turnkey property without having to worry about extensions and renovations is also a plus.

“A lot of the houses on Lakeside Drive are still original and this is the only completed project we have seen come to market on this street.”

Shaun said potential buyers had shown interest already and had given positive feedback after the first two open inspections last weekend, with 47 groups in attendance.

“The outlook and view has been the favourite feature quoted from buyers,” he said.

”You can enjoy the sunrise and in the afternoon the entertaining areas are protected from the sun.”

Shaun said the potential buyers for the property included retired couples and families.

“Families and retirees who still require a bit of space can enjoy the functional floorplan,” he said.

From the moment you step through the front door into the welcoming entry hall, anticipation builds, promising a residence of distinction, where every expectation is not just met but surpassed.

The captivating facade boasts architectural finesse, setting the tone for the elegance within.

The recently completed extension serves as the heart of the home, featuring a carefully designed kitchen with Quantum quartz benchtops and a pantry. It seamlessly flows onto an entertainer’s balcony.

“The kitchen, and family dining area above the garage is a new extension completed by Higginson Homes, who build a lot of the prestige homes around town,” Shaun said. “They’ve done an excellent job.

“It was a smart decision by the owners to put the living area above the garage because the little bit of extra elevation makes the view so much better. It’s a really good design choice by the owners.

“The living zones are separated, which gives everyone their own space for their use and privacy.”

The versatile layout beyond the open-plan kitchen/living area, a rumpus room, sitting area with built-in storage and seating, home office/dining, and lounge room offers ample space for relaxation and entertainment.

The property comes with five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom and ensuite, with an eastern aspect, capture the beautiful morning light.

The thoughtful layout situates the second bedroom near the main, ideal for parents with young children. Three additional bedrooms at the rear, all generously sized and surrounding the main bathroom, provide separation and space for teenagers.

Both bathrooms have also been renovated, with the main one featuring a skylight, adding a touch of sophistication, and there’s a third toilet in the garage for added convenience.

Stunning engineered timber flooring in the open-plan family room, pitched ceilings, sliding doors and retractable screens effortlessly merge the indoor and outdoor spaces.

The outdoor oasis, complete with a built-in barbecue, offers sweeping views over Lake Albert, making it a showstopper for hosting guests or enjoying quiet evenings.

Multiple sheltered and protected entertainment areas cater to every occasion, from the undercover balcony to the inviting outdoor lounge with an open brick fireplace, perfect for enjoying both morning serenity and evening gatherings with a view.

The pool house cabana provides a tranquil retreat after a swim in the large, sparkling tiled swimming pool, surrounded by travertine paving, olive trees and bench seating.

The huge garage can accommodate several large vehicles, boats and trailers, and boasts ample storage options with built-in cupboards, under-stair storage and a practical workbench.

Shaun said the 953-square-metre property was low maintenance because the house, pool and cabana took up most of the block, with a small grassed area at the back.

The auction for 23 Lakeside Drive, Lake Albert, is scheduled for 20 April at 11 am.

An inspection is scheduled for Saturday, 30 March, from 11 am to 11:30 am and 2 pm to 2:30 pm.
