SOLD AT AUCTION!
Have you be waiting and watching the market? Waiting for that elusive character home on a big corner block?
This absolute gem of a home not only has that long sought after corner location, but also has R30 zoning and 808m2 of green titled land (ripe for future subdivision).
An original red brick tuck pointed home circa 1920, has been substantially improved and extended. Boasting four bedrooms, two bathrooms, formal dining, open plan living and a light bright modern kitchen that over looks the generous back yard. Lead-lights, high ceilings, wide boards, and other original features lend the home a sense of time and place that a newer home just doesn’t have. If the walls could talk….
With new Delonghi appliances and gloss white cabinetry this farm house style kitchen is huge, with acres of bench space. Imagine mornings at the kitchen table, a cup of tea, surveying you back yard through the large timber framed picture windows.
The main living room boasts a feature gas fireplace of exposed brick. The room has double doors that open to the backyard for easy inside, outside living. The extension to this gorgeous older home really has capitalised on the outside space with lots of glass leading the eye to the extravagant outdoor space.
The modern main bathroom comes complete with a luxurious tub for long languid soaks and the second bathroom is a convenient “tradesman styled” shower and toilet room accessed off the laundry.
Bore reticulation ensures your fully fenced yard stays green year round. There is room for gardeners, roaming children, excitable pets, a pool or even build a granny flat. The huge brick double garage accessed off Manchester street is a man-cave of mega proportions. A place to park your toys or spread out that hobby you’ve never quite had the space for.
Up the beautiful timber staircase a fourth bedroom with plenty of built in robes and a covered balcony is a perfect escape from the rest of the household.
Located on the corner of Manchester street and Washington street the double corner gates are a grand gesture and once flung open invite you to a home of generous proportions and loads of future potential. Within walking distance of Victoria Park’s vibrant cafe strip, home to small bars, cafes, Friday night markets, Sunday morning Farmer’s market and a plethora of restaurants this home just ticks so many boxes. A short walk to buses that regularly run straight into the city, in the sought after Victoria Park Primary School local intake area and proximal to other primary and secondary school options.
Inspection is sure to satisfy.
