Refreshed classic: 13 Davey Street, Sunshine West, 3022

On a corner block in a long-established area of Sunshine West, this classic weatherboard from around the late ’50s is likely to have first-home buyers and investors paying attention.

The house, a beneficiary of a smart revamp, is in a quiet spot tailor-made for families – Sunshine Heights Primary School and Marian College are within three-minute car trips. The Western Ring Road, for a city trip of less than 30 minutes, is just five minutes away, as is Sunshine’s shopping and vibrant multicultural foodie precinct.

The home has today’s look, with original polished floorboards in many rooms (including bedrooms), crisp white wall paint and completely refreshed kitchen and bathroom.

Picture rails and high ceilings reflect the home’s era, while aluminium-framed windows are dressed in vertical or roller blinds.

The three bedrooms share a bright new bathroom, all-white with contrasting tiling in a soft-coffee shade.

Living areas include a lounge room with a snazzy light fitting and a gas heater set in a tapestry-brick surround; a tiled meals zone abutting the kitchen; and a family/sunroom that opens to a remote-controlled carport doubling as entertainment area. This latter space is accessible from the side street, while a second driveway from the front provides additional off-street parking.

The sparkling all-white kitchen has loads of cupboards and pot drawers, stone-topped benches (including an island) and splashback tiles matching the bathroom’s, plus stainless-steel cooking appliances. A space is provided for adding a dishwasher.

Ducted heating and an air-conditioner take care of year-round climate control.

The front garden behind a brick fence is landscaped and, out back, the block has been subdivided – which translates to zero yard upkeep.

This low-maintenance property represents a great investment in a suburb that’s definitely going places.
