Comments on 11 Hunter Street MALVERN

On first impressions, this home offers all you would expect of a renovated period home in Malvern: an attractive facade, period features retained in the front part of home and a modern extension in the back - with the bonus of a north orientation. However, weak car parking and weak floorplan flexibility will limit its appeal. The home is small on accommodation, although it is big on living spaces. This is a fully renovated home with three bedrooms and no study. The position of the master bedroom is curiously placed between the other two bedrooms rather than at the front of the home. Coupled with the location of the family bathroom at the end of the hallway and one of the bedrooms at the opposite end, this means the house is not preferable for living with teenagers. That said, there are two great-sized living zones to separate kids and adults entertaining at once. The one car spot is accessed by a narrow cobbled laneway and would not be used on a day-to-day basis. There is parking on the street, however this would not be suitable for families with very young children or the elderly. The lack of storage would also need to be considered by families although this could be compensated by utilising the three-sided carport. This is a pretty home with no work to do, which is situated in a popular area walking distance from Malvern train station and Malvern Primary School. It would ideally suit a couple (perhaps with an older child or two soon to leave home) or a younger family as a short term option. The key question here is how much you value the convenient location to weigh up against the weak car parking?

 

Gina Kantzas's Comments on 11 Hunter Street MALVERN

This is a neat and fairly typical period home in this pretty, family-friendly Malvern location. First impressions are good from the street and internally it has a functional, practical floor plan. Although the backyard is north facing and private, it is on the small side and the car access via a rear laneway may prove inconvenient if used regularly. Maybe a space could be achieved in the front yard (STCA). Not sure if formal living and dining rooms would be used; perhaps one of these could be made into a bedroom or study. I would also extend the lowered ceiling over the bathroom back up, and replace the fixtures.  This is a comfortable home, yet there is still plenty of upside here. It could be good fit for a family or couple that don't mind having a smallish backyard.
