Extended Bungalow with Versatile Studio and DA Approved Plans

This bungalow's classic façade gives little away as to the features and sheer sense of space that lies beyond its white picket fence and arbour. As you would expect from a home of this era it's full of charm and character, from the fretwork and dark timber architraves to the wall strapping and ornate ceilings. An upper-level extension has created a bright and spacious extra living space along with three of the five bedrooms, second bathroom, and a handy carpeted loft retreat. Back downstairs, the floorplan opens at the rear to a brand-new timber deck that's covered for all-seasons alfresco entertaining against a backdrop of northern sunshine, and a studio with its own kitchenette and bathroom adds further appeal. Ready for you to move in with your growing family, there is scope to further value-add with some modern updates, while you may wish to complete the visionary ideas for this property and act on the DA approved plans for a second dwelling. 78 Turnbull Street is just 400m from Hamilton South Public School and less than five minutes to both Market Town and The Junction as well as a choice of beautiful beaches.
