This classic three-bedroom weatherboard home is located in popular Brown Street, Armidale.

It is set on a 535.9sq m block.

The main bedroom has an en suite, while the other two bedrooms share the second bathroom.

All bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes.

There is a formal living room, with a disused fireplace and mantel.

The high-ceiling hallway has a classic archway just screaming for some contemporary paintwork.

This hall leads to the large, open-plan living area that includes the kitchen to one side.

This area all faces north, capturing the winter sun.

Heating is via gas central heating.

There is a large deck on the north side which provides further entertainment and outdoor living space.

The view looks across the town, with St Mary’s Cathedral in the distance, just to remind you of Armidale’s heritage.

The garden is tidy, with established trees and shrubs and there is a watering system.

A single-space carport is located at the side of the allotment.

The home is within walking distance of primary schools and shops.

It would make for a great base in Armidale, or a permanent residence.

Currently painted in neutral colours, someone with a little flair could easily add extra value to this beautiful old home.
