Just WOW ... Now That's a View
Every now and then, something special comes to market, and even for agents with over 30 years combined experience we are genuinely impressed by this property, purely on the basis of one factor alone: Location !
Passed through three generations, and first time ever offered to the open market since the home was constructed in the early part of last century, this classic Queenslander offers a very comfortable family home and presents in excellent condition for a home of this age.
And the location ... and the views ....
Positioned on the very peak of the Manly hilltop, 130 Ernest St, Manly has a direct north east aspect over the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, at out to the bay islands with views from the inner St Helena and Green Islands in the foreground, out to Moreton and Stradbroke Islands in the distance. Secure, permanent and panoramic Moreton Bay views.
And the land area ...
In a residential zone where smaller lots are the norm, this property offers no less than 632 sqm land area, with a very, very generous back yard to allow for either further extension of the existing home, or simply a great yard space for kids. Or for the savvy investor, land content alone supports the value of the property, with assured future capital growth given the elevation, views and surrounding property values.
And the home ...
A sturdy, classic looking, Queenslander, this three bedroom home, presents in very good condition throughout. Structurally, the home has been fully restumped underneath, and presents as a very level and honest home, as there is easy access and good airflow underneath the property. Similarly the home has been re-roofed during it's lifetime, and is well protected externally.
Internally the home has a reasonably modern and functional kitchen and bathroom, and has fresh paint throughout, so presents very well as a home which can be comfortably lived in now, with scope to extend and further improve at a later time. Very difficult to overcapitalise in this prime location, so buy now and make your plans to add further value!
Lifestyle options abound:
Take a walk along the Manly Esplanade and into the nearby village
Enjoy sailing from the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron
Al-fresco dining in one of many local restaurants and cafes
Ride your bike along the waterfront, south to Lota, and north to the Wynnum Mangrove Boardwalk, enjoying the wonderful water views of Moreton Bay.
