8 Goddard St, Turella. so, yeah, where is Turella? Well it has a train station, is 10 kms from the CBD, 5 minutes from Ikea Tempe and 10 minutes to the airport. This house is priced at $1.4M which is on the high side for Turella. Average price is about $1.1M. The last house that made an impact was this one for just under $1M.
For those priced out of Marrickville and Tempe (insane but yes) Turella is across the Cooks River and with surprisingly better access to roads and much less airport noise due to flight paths. Rave over – lets just take in this glory box of a house.
I’m fascinated by the current owners art collection. This is the best natural styling I have seen and strangely closely resembles the artistic clutter of a family home but with more plastic.
Kitchen is perfect for families. You can gather here and do homework and all sit around on screens.
This has parent’s retreat all over it.
Everything old except new bathroom. Big Tick.
Happy family verandah. Notice the canoes stored? Down the road is the Cooks River with its own canoe club. I vote to lie on the day bed and supervise the kids playing.
Family Factor. Single level always works for small children. A large open kitchen/ lounge and access to safe outdoor space is also perfect. Three well sized bedrooms and north facing backyard, large trees and this house is rambling childhood perfection.
