Comments on 118 Walpole Street KEW

Got a really big family, or want one and are you on a budget? Ok, then 118 Walpole, this big rambler, is a good home to consider.

Yes, it's a B grader on any of its PPP's taken in isolation - but add the quality of the 3P's (Price, Property and Position) together and for me circa $3m it’s an A grader. It's a walk to the shops, there is some distant freeway noise and the block has slope.

However, its bedroom city - there are bedrooms everywhere - there are also nooks and crannies and additional rooms - I was thinking as I walked thru this - a modern day Walton's home - goodnight John boy - for those not too young to remember the TV series.

While there is a slope from south down to north and this is an east/west block, except for granny getting up the entrance stairs, I didn't see any issues - in fact the home is very well placed considering its size - for garden use and young child supervision and taking in the north light.

Personally, I'd soften the brick paving at the front for first impressions.

A few years back it sold for $2.35m and now the quote is high $2m's - the magic mark they are aiming for seems to be $3m - will it get it? Well it should have last year - this year, it’s early days – let’s see - however for what it is, for some families (the big ones) - this home is a big, beauty on a budget - and one to consider.
