Stylish & well appointed Bangalow home

4 Barby Crescent, Bangalow

As you enter the property you will feel the fantastic combination of views and privacy that this home offers.

The open living/kitchen/dining with polished floorboards stretch almost the width of the entire house and open on to the large covered veranda.

Downstairs is currently a huge garage that will easily fit 3 cars and loads of storage space.

Perfect for generating income or visiting friends.

All of this only a short walk to the centre of charming Bangalow with markets, cafes, and restaurants.
