What’s your Munster dream?

The Lotto dream is a stunning two-storey, four-bedroom/three-bathroom home, on a meticulously manicured block and a pool, preferably with ocean views.

But the reality for most of us is more modest.

That makes this Munster duplex perfect for a young couple starting out, or for retirees wanting to down-size to a lock and leave, with cash left over to top up the super and travel—and still have a garden.

Priced well under $500,000, first-home owners won’t have to stump for stamp duty, saving around $16,000, nicely compensating for the much-reduced first-home-owners’ grant.

The vendor has renovated and painted the three-bedroom duplex and the result is a pleasant dwelling with nothing left to do but move in.

A lovely bullnose verandah overlooks a neat courtyard front garden facing a surprisingly quiet Barrington Street.

“The double garage is huge, with spacious storage that could be converted if you like into a second bathroom.”

Open the double frosted-glass doors and it’s even more peaceful as you step into the compact lounge, with its golden, floating-timber floor.

An arch leads to the open-plan dining/kitchen, where you’ll find a there’s plenty of preparation space on the all-white benches and plenty of storage in the white cupboards, including a double pantry. And there’s a dishwasher.

Split-system air conditioning keeps things cool, but for a refreshing change head to Coogee Beach, mere minutes by car.

There’s plenty of space in the garden of this 464sqm property for a shed, chooks and a vegie patch, a nice little nod to the suburb’s market garden history.

And I’d be erecting a patio/alfresco near the stand of peppermint trees on the fence line as a matter of priority.

The double garage is huge, with spacious storage that could be converted if you like into a second bathroom.

Lovely Smart Park with its waterfalls, lakes and gazebos is a short stroll down Barrington Street, Stargate shopping centre not much further, and Newton and St Jerome’s primary schools are nearby.
