The Details
About The Property
Large block of land placed on a junction where Lockrose St, Kooya Rd and Karabin St all meet. The property has two addresses, however, the agent has advised that it's not strata titled. The property is a mix of existing and new features and as such, can present a little awkward. In saying that however, it still ticks all the boxes of a great investment property as a 4 bedroom home with three bathrooms and two living areas. There was two interesting quirky features, one being the random room off the back of the ensuite which was purpose built for a bathtub - but no tub has been installed; the second, the 4th bedroom adjoins the garage with a sliding glass door. So it seems the gararge was built after the house and they have built this flush to the property. It's not a problem, but just not something you always see. The property is located on a flat block in a really nice part of Mitchelton, where bugger 5 bedroom brand new homes sells for over $1 million dollors.

Our Thoughts
From the street and upon entry this property certainly catches the eye. It presents nicely in a well established and desirable part of Mitchelton. The internals of this property definitely present better in the photos than to the naked eye. It had some interesting quirks to it, such as a random room off the main ensuite that was originally built for an indoor/outdoor bath tub. There is not bathtub here so it is a random room next to the shower. However, if you put a bathroom there it could be a great asset! The living and dining to the rear of the house was originally a sunroom and this has been converted. It works well, however, it's not legal height for a bedroom if you wanted to convert it (not required i wouldnt think). 
The garden is adequate size, combined with the outdoor patio. The blue building is the next door nighbours wall (they painted it blue). Along one side of the boundary there was a low see through fence, so essentially no privacy to that side. Recommended to install a standard fence there to create more privacy. The internal living areas were nice, however on the smaller side for a 4 bedroom house.
The owners are two adults and 4 children and they have just brought a 5 bedroom home around the corner as this property was too small for them. They have rejected an offer of $590,000 as they would like to see a 6 at the front of any offer. After viewing the property, i would set a max purchase price at $605,000 with an initial bid of $592,000.
