This Double-Fronted Delight is Northcote’s Greatest Untapped Potential
There are very few opportunities for renovation and transformation as beguiling and coveted as this largely original three-bedroom Victorian double-front Northcote home (c.1890).
Commanding a prized position just steps from all the best Northcote has to offer and on the cusp of Clifton Hill and Fitzroy North (hello, exciting inner-city lifestyle), this period residence – a vestige of architectural history in a modern world – is simply awaiting an owner-occupier with a strong vision and a loving hand to breathe new life into it.
Original fireplaces, high ceiling roses, creamy walls beautifully framed with peach trimmings and rich hardwood timber floors beneath the fluffy carpet underfoot characterise each of the three enormous bedrooms, an epic kitchen, large dining area and living room.
But it’s as you walk down the hall and beneath an ornate archway, taking in the grandeur of each vast and light-filled space, that the classic framework and bygone era design will ultimately call to the keen, clever and creative who are willing to reimagine this otherwise exquisite blank canvas. The possibilities? Endless.
Beyond the interiors is a secluded north-facing back garden, laneway access and off-street parking.
A leisurely stroll to schools, every kind of public transport, High Street’s fabulous dining scene, shops and the iconic Westgarth Cinema, parklands and trails, as well as just five kilometres from the CBD, you’ll want for nothing – because you’ll have everything.
