SNAGGING a snook on your hook may not be as easy as it sounds to the fishing uninitiated, but getting hooked by this cute Snook Crescent home is a sure thing.
The appealing three-bedroom Hilton cottage will reel in potential new owners the minute they step into the lushly planted front garden.
Mature trees, soaring cacti, a pool of green lawn and mellow brick paving ensure this is private space for quiet contemplation.
The natural charm of this weatherboard abode, which sits on 413sqm, has been retained while the home has been updated and freshly painted.
Rich chocolate-brown jarrah floors contrast against crisp white walls, and high ceilings are a feature throughout, including in the formal lounge, with its open fire-place.
There’s no shortage of preparation space in the generous central kitchen/dining area, with its expanse of golden-hued benches.
Bold red cupboards make a vibrant splash, and I loved the exposed brick wall with its artistically placed solid timber shelf.
Two of the bedrooms are double, with a third, smaller one at the rear, where you’ll also find the bathroom and laundry, with their eye-popping lime-green and purple walls (believe me, it actually works).
The subdivided block offers more sitting spaces in the rear garden, under the sheltering shade of a couple of soaring mature gum trees.
This is a great starter home for a young couple, with Grigg Park mere metres away.
Wander up Paget and you’ll find a great local cafe and Hilton primary school, and check out the program of terrific activities for kids at the local PCYC next door.
