Character, Charm and Potential on a Massive Block!

Auction Location: Online.

We are delighted to once again be able to show homes to buyers in person. Please note that whilst physical inspections are now possible, we cannot guarantee that all buyers will have the opportunity to do so due. This is due to high demand and the imposed limit of 4 people per property per day. If you are interested in personally inspecting this home, we urge you to request your appointment as early as possible. Please select the 'Book Inspection' or 'Request Inspection' button below to request an appointment. In the meantime, we encourage you to explore the home further using our suite of interactive inspection tools.

This charming original 1930's double brick cottage has enormous potential. A veritable city commuter home, located a short walk from the Ainslie shops and moments from several schools, buses, the fabulous light rail, inner-city dining and much, much more. With a gigantic flat block of 1,133m2 boasting a long North, North Easterly flank there is huge opportunity to add further amenity to this home and capitalise on your investment.

Front access is via the classic covered porch into the wide separate entry hall. As you walk through the house you'll feel the calm of the double brick construction, high battened ceilings, picture rails, beautiful timber sash windows, and solid polished timber floors. The bygone sturdy construction and period architectural features add character to the home not found in today's buildings.

The living room has its original fireplace which has been renovated and still in working order. This and the original mantelpiece are not commonly found in many buildings of similar vintage - Lucky you!

The large master bedroom with built-in robe has great views of the garden through its attractive timber windows. Off the hallway, which contains built in storage cupboards, are two further spacious bedrooms with timber floors, high battened ceilings and sash windows.

The eat-in kitchen has been recently updated and the separate laundry is located nearby. An extension at this point offers the potential to open up the rear of the house, taking advantage of the northerly aspect to the side boundary. Outside is a huge garden with trees along the fence line.

A character filled home combined with the lifestyle of the nearby Ainslie shops and cafes and the potential for future extension. If you love the Inner North lifestyle and in particular, access to the delights of Braddon, then call today!
