CLASSIC VICTORIAN BLANK CANVAS IN PRIZED WESTGARTH LOCATION
Not quite down to the ashes, but a substantial fire has destroyed the majority of this classic Victorian home. But as good fortune would have it, the charming Victorian façade with laced bull-nose verandah and solid red brick side walls remain to lure the seasoned renovator/builder and owner occupier to take up the challenge and turn this blank canvas into a masterpiece in this prized Westgarth location.
The arched hallway and two front bedrooms with chimney, providing a fireplace, in each are still recognizable. Therefore ideally, it would make sense to recreate the period character at the front, while the generous remaining space at the rear has all the right ingredients for a modern-day extension (STCA) and ultimately become the perfect family home.
Set on a 248 square metre approx block with side and rear laneway access, stands this once in a lifetime opportunity to resurrect the home's historic charm and enhance further with contemporary flair in arguably Westgarths finest streets with bike paths, parklands, train stations and, cosmopolitan cafes, shops and Westgarth theatre in vibrant High Street at its fingertips.
*Please note there is no bathroom at this home.
