It’s not every day you could move straight into a home and start earning an income from it immediately.

That’s what this property at 61 Best Street, Wagga Wagga, offers – the best of both worlds – a stunning home complete with a separately metered one-bedroom apartment, right in the heart of town.

“It’s a beautiful home,” says One Agency’s selling agent Harry Mangelsdorf.

“It’s been very cleverly designed in that it looks like an original 80-, 90-year-old home but was constructed a lot more recently.

“This means you’ve got all the convenience of a modern build and modern renovation without the heartache of an old home.”

The home features three bedrooms with the main bedroom complete with ensuite and walk-in robe.

Outdoors you’ll find a pool, covered entertainment space, manicured gardens and a courtyard.

The jewel in the crown, says Harry, is the rear access via Biroomba Lane to an oversized double garage complete with the fully approved one-bedroom apartment on top.

“The apartment is one-bedroom, one-bathroom and it has a loungeroom and kitchenette,” said Harry.

“It’s separately metered and has its own bin so you could either rent it out long-term, or it would be perfect for overnight accommodation or overflow for the family.”

Interest has come from all angles, with Harry fielding enquiries from families, owner occupiers, investors and downsizers.

“It would suit anyone and I can really see a downsizer loving it. Someone who is leaving a large family home who wants to live in the front part of the house and make some income from out the back, how ideal would that be?”

On the market for $1.295 to $1.395 million, Harry says it’s a competitive price for the offering.

“There’s a lot going for this house – space, location and convenience being at the top of the list.

“One of the biggest things to note here is that the owners did not hold back with quality on it.

“From the benchtops, appliances and heating and cooling to the window coverings, everything – it’s all quality.”

The location has been a highlight with inspections so far. One block from the main street, it’s an easy stroll to parks, pubs, clubs, shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the hospital and nearby schools.

There’s no off-street parking hassles and it offers space in the garage for your bikes if you prefer to travel on two wheels rather than four.

Harry said it was the outdoor entertainment space that resonated with him on his first visit.

“I love the undercover alfresco area, the space looking from the kitchen toward the pool.

“The stacker doors that open up mean you can really enjoy the living space from inside the house to outside and the flow from one to the other.

“It’s really a hideaway from the hustle of the CBD, but your own patch of privacy right in town.”
