Comments on 3 Tennyson Street BRIGHTON

First up Tennyson is a much underrated street - one back from the beach and 400 metres to rail and coffee at Brighton Beach, not to mention Milanos. A 1 minute drive to the Were St shops for groceries and 3 minutes to Church St by car. No 3 is a great summer feel home that could be a lot better - meaning it has good views of the water but some ugly ones of the neighbours air-con. The floorplan flows pretty well but for some reason an indoor pool was put in breaking the whole flow. The land is a good size and the garden is private, steps or the slope make changes a bit tricky but the locale means a great reno would provide a return on the investment. Bedroom separation is a plus. And I like the use of the void. Price - right now its very livable but those who tend to have this sort of cash want a better final result; so for me it's a 300,000 to $750,000 refurbishment and so work your buy price back from your end value.

Large Modern home which is little dated internally in terms of finish/fitout, yet it is light and bright and the floor plan is quite functional. Privacy of backyard and location are key pluses, not quite sure about the indoor pool.

This is the third property I have purchased using James Buyers Advocates in a 13 year period. Mal and his team have been fantastic and each property has been both a great home and financial investment. Howeve ...more
