This property screams opportunity! Have you ever dreamt of taking a 100 year old house, restoring it to its former glory, and extending it, providing the facilities demanded by the 21st Century? If so, here is a property demanding of your attention.
When the current family bought this property in 1975, the house was 69 years old. It is now 112 years old. The integrity and authenticity of the house have been maintained, and it is in basically original condition, as you will see in the photos, requiring extensive renovations.
Accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms, lounge room, kitchen, meals area and bathroom.
Architectural features include: return bullnose verandah, magnificent stained glass entry, numerous decorative fireplaces, rare pressed metal walls, timber matchboard ceilings, and decorative plaster ceiling roses.
The land has 2 street frontages, and comprises 2 lots, each of 357sqm, and each having its own title.
The current owner had secured a conditional approval to re-subdivide the land in 2014, retaining the house on a lot of 364sqm, fronting the primary street, and a vacant lot of 350sqm, with frontage to the secondary street. He did not proceed with the approval, which has now lapsed.
The property enjoys an excellent location for families, being situated between Scotch College and the Swanbourne Primary School, and surrounded by extensive recreational opportunities, including Maclagan Park, Cresswell Park, the Scotch College playing fields, and Lake Claremont parkland.
The property is included on the Municipal Inventory of the Town of Claremont, and is classified Management Category B.
Exciting opportunities like this are becoming harder and harder to find, so if this one tickles your fancy, call me straight away, to avoid missing out to another buyer, equally passionate about character homes. GREG VOUDOURIS, 0438072531.
