When a pearl of a fifties home puts a park and project-friendly 800 square metres on the table…

From a location eyeing Hamilton Park Reserve at ten paces, transformation is just around the corner for this stuccoed mid-century original and its made-for-two frontage of 19.05m.

Needless to say, it’s never left its founding family’s hands. An opportunity 65 years in the making.

The sole survivor in a cluster of smart new builds, it’s easy to envision what might be, notwithstanding a top to toe renovation undertaken with heart. Solid and ready for the young family or first-time buyer to bring into the now, consider your starting point:

Sun-letting large windows, Deco ceiling detail and an original fire surround instil their trademark character into carpeted lounge and dining spaces – the latter holding the key to a third bedroom as per the original floorplan.

For now, two bedrooms offer kingly sufficiency, the master touting an abundance of built-in furniture: bedhead, side tables, drawers and a five-door stretch of floor to ceiling robes. Majorly extended and again with spacious storage, another delivers studio-style accommodation with direct backyard access – ideal for the tribe or a home-based start-up.

Modern comfort comes in the form of ducted heating and cooling, a small but perfectly formed bathroom with both bath and shower, separate toilet and a simple white kitchen with vinyl flooring, plenty of good storage and a full range of electric appliances including a dishwasher.

As a tumble of pink pandorea fills your sightline, sun and treed backyard seclusion merge seamlessly to wash over the adjacent meals area and a slate-paved patio marshalling all-weather polycarbonate protection. Like those before you, savour the fruits of green thumbs past, brilliant birdlife and the opportunity to enhance this special place as you see fit.

Paint for an instant refresh, move in or land an instant income stream. If redevelopment is your end game, be inspired by your closest neighbours – those striking family abodes and executive pairs, single or double storey.

Some things never change though… Like being able to walk to nearby Warradale Primary School without crossing any major roads, unlimited free access to tennis, basketball and play equipment across the way, and excellent public transport links. With Westfield Marion, beaches, coastal dining and more just minutes away…

Here’s your oyster, now grow your pearl.
