TUCKED AWAY

This stylish brick home is tucked away on South hill in an elevated position, with mature gardens. All three bedrooms have built-in robes & the main also has an ensuite. The kitchen/dining living area with a second dining/ living area gives you some excellent family space. The northern living area opens out to the private gardens with a peaceful outlook. The double lock-up garage has internal access. There is also 8 kilowatt solar & insulation even in the walls. Walking distance to New England Girls School and not far to the new Armidale Secondry College due to open day one of Term 1 in 2021.
