Community living in leafy Floreat
Retire in Leafy Floreat – corner ¼ acre [just over 1,000m2] overlooking mature Tuart treed parks
This property has a well-built 1960’s 3×1 home – the owner aims to sell in June 2018 after restoring garden, and looking for around $1.2million. It’s amazing value, blue-ribbon safe suburb. ABC radio investment advisors say snap up Blue- ribbon areas which are currently relatively good buying, but starting to rise because people are upgrading.
The current house with northerly aspect is in good condition, so immediate rental income whilst building 2 purpose-built dwellings in the rear 2/3 of the block. Rear is slightly elevated for better northerly aspect and park views from top level. The house could be converted to 2 grannyflats. There is another 22.2m depth into the block and almost 22.5m width across the back fence. It’s 21.5m wide across the front of the house which is placed on the front edge of the building envelope, taking 10.6m depth into the block😊
Bus stops each way are 100m away between the parks, and it’s only 1km [5min walk] from Floreat Forum, library and many more buses…. The beaches are about 5km west through bush or parkland so walk, cycle or gopher to beach😊
Town of Cambridge Planning staff said that each ‘grannyflat’ must be max 100m2, plus possibly a big common kitchen/family area in the middle adjoining the house kitchen and laundry. There can be 2 strata titles, so perhaps 2 owners who rent out the 3rd unit.
See R-codes Part 5.5.2 (below) and Local Planning Policy 3.11 which refers to “Aged Independent Persons Dwellings”…. Which is anyone over 55yo.
I’d love to hear from anybody interested in joining me to retire there or just invest 😊
