A Retro Treat with a Great Future
There are choices here! Keep the home's retro integrity - or not! The beauty of retro style is that it can retain that ultra-cool vibe even when it is enhanced with modern amenities. The 3-bedroom (built-in wardrobes) residence could easily take a total interior makeover to become a salute to contemporary design creativity. And the solid brick construction of the abode means a 2nd storey addition is another definite possibility (STCA). Imagine the family space you'll have then!
Completely liveable right now, without alteration - and a great rental proposition - the home (which has high ceilings) has a wide entrance foyer with a full wall of built-in cupboards. Off to one side is the combined lounge and dining room, which can be closed off to make it cosy for winter. A sunroom at the rear of the house is a relaxing, alternative sitting area. In original condition - but definitely functional - the kitchen features a built-in breakfast booth adding much to the retro charm. The bathroom will delight period enthusiasts!
Well established plants and shrubbery fringe the private garden where there is a shed, a double garage, and pedestrian access to Anna Street at the rear of the property. Land size is approx 593sqm.
The location is brilliant - trams at the end of the street; trains in strolling distance; lively Glenhuntly Road village shops and cafes nearby; the spectacular new adventure playground mere metres away; and easy access to Caulfield campus of Monash Uni.
