We want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported Colgate-Palmolive's recent appeal! Thanks to the generosity of Colgate- Palmolive and Countdown shoppers, more than 10,000 toiletries and household cleaning items have been donated to Salvation Army foodbanks around the country.

Negotiable over $309,000

Enjoy peace, privacy and seclusion whilst being so close to everything this city fringe location has to offer. Just a gentle stroll and you are at the supermarket and handy amenities, whilst the beating heart of the city is just a quick uber away.

This tidy two bedroom townhouse is low maintenance and presents the perfect package for professional couples or first home buyers. Equally appealing to savvy investors wanting to add to their rental portfolio.

Inside, the open plan layout includes the kitchen and lounge whilst the sun soaked patio provides a natural extension of your living. The two bedrooms plus office are complemented by a good sized bathroom which has dual access off the master bedroom. A downstairs toilet and separate laundry add to the appeal. Year round comfort is assured by way of a heat pump.

Recently, the exterior has been fully repainted. Lovely easy care landscaping but plenty of scope for the green-fingered to potter in the garden. Tucked away down a long driveway the property is fully fenced with a double internal access garage and off street parking. Close to Merivale and The Palms shopping centre.

A highly sought after property and given the affordability and location we advise to act quickly - call today!!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated to ease her anxiety. There must be many other people out there with yhe same worries. Please help with information. Thank you.
