44 Harvey represents the rarest of things. An original home on a near-city big block. 1012m2 of R40 zoned land.
One of the few full blocks left on Harvey Street.
A gorgeous brick and clay tile 3 bedroom 1920’s home sits amongst a verdant bore-reticulated garden. Eden-esque in its lushness and for its variety of fruit trees and other edible delights. Pears, apples, mangoes, grapes oranges, olives, figs, chillies, sweet potato just to name a few! For the serious gardener there are raised beds in place ready to produce again.
The home is elevated above street level and boasts two big bedrooms and an enclosed front verandah that could easily be a smaller third bedroom. Quintessential character features abound. High ceilings, polished jarrah boards, big rooms, fireplaces, ornate ceilings and much more.
The big master bedroom has a bay window that overlooks the front yard and boasts a fireplace for extra ambiance.
An impressively large formal dining room harks to another time when the silverware was polished and the best crockery was brought out to impress those distant relatives that you didn’t really like.
The home features a light bright modern kitchen with a 900mm free-standing oven, plenty of practical bench space and storage. A relatively new bathroom with shower and bath makes easy modern living a reality in this well maintained character home.
With the ability to retain the existing character home and with easy access to the rear of the block, this property provides the holy grail of retain and subdivide opportunity. Any homes built to the rear of the block will enjoy skyline views. I am reliably informed that the current owner’s children and their friends (now grown up) would sit on their roof to watch the Skyworks.
The home also features NBN (FTTP), a new bore pump, amazing access to just about everything (seriously you can walk to the Stadium, River, Crown Resort, Vic Park cafe strip, supermarket, private and public schools, trains, buses, you name it!), a covered car park and probably the shed with the most ornate ceiling I have ever seen!
44 Harvey Street has been an oasis and home for a long time. It is now someone else’s turn to enjoy the fruits of this near-city piece of paradise.
