Another property sold after the first Home Open by Baston & Co. Property.
This is picture perfect Australiana. The 1920’s corner store.
On 471m2 of survey-strata corner block this 3 x 1 original brick and iron shop-home is a coveted prize.
Reeking of equal parts history and opportunity.
A corner shop and sometime polling place in the late 1930’s, Giese’s Store, as it was known, has that quintessential Vic Park vibe in spades.
The amazing open plan living space that was the old shop floor, is now over looked by a contemporary custom made kitchen that boasts London grey Caesarstone bench tops, integrated dishwasher and loads of storage.
A light filled room in the middle of the house makes for a perfect casual second living space.
The once front formal lounge is now a generous bedroom, the old fireplace, with its original glazed hearth tiles still remains as a reminder of the room’s original use.
Now incorporated under the home’s main roof the old outside laundry room now acts as a perfect studio/art space, rustic and imperfect but with natural light and a patina that reminds you of more simple times.
With a fully fenced yard, mature trees, auto reticulation and an expanse of lawn, pets and kids will be right at home.
Ripe for a modern addition, whilst retaining the bones and integrity of this marvelous home, there is room to extend, add a pool, a double garage, park a camper trailer or a boat.
There are plenty of little surprises, for the shed dwellers there is three phase power, for the lovers of history 100 year old double hung windows from a Claremont mansion grace the back of the home.
Make no mistake for the new owner there is some work to do, but this piece of local history is ready for the next lot of people to add their stories to the home’s impressive history and truly shine this gem of a home.
