Restore a budding beauty in prized Prospect territory, start over, or subdivide (STCC)
Half a century with one owner and character aching to glow again, let your designer juices restore, extend or start over (STCC) in a C1928 stone-fronted bungalow at arm’s length from the Prospect Road buzz…
On some 813sqm of prime soil with a north-facing, deep rear garden – currently flourishing with fig, citrus, loquat and vines dating way back – its block is well worth a look.
To a home holding fretwork, leadlight, a stone façade and decorative high ceilings, the rest is an honest, two-bedroom (plus a lean-to sunroom) blank canvas looking for design discovery down contemporary lane.
From its two large front bedrooms, the wide hallway meets a central kitchen, casual meals, and a living room which was once a third bedroom.
The rear lean-to sunroom (with attached laundry) and bathroom are all basic but there, steering thoughts to paint, flooring, joinery and the house and block’s broad scope to add (STCC) thanks to its wide eastern boundary with bountiful rear square metres.
And, attached to the house, a second WC gives you instant outdoor convenience, or more importantly, plumbing on standby for that new back end.
An original barn-door garage extends to a carport and roller door for off-street parking.
As for location, watch the throngs fight for car parks far removed from your quiet street end as you take a twilight stroll to Nova Cinemas, café after café for your select brew, authentic Souvlakia at Meze Mazi, or wood-fired pizza at Insta-acclaimed Anchovy Bandit.
Retail variety at the Churchill Centre, Prospect Road for all your grocery faves, or head east to Sefton Plaza or NorthPark.
It’s a blank canvas right now, but it could be a budding beauty in prized territory.
