Your affordable entry point to Glenelg East & Brighton Secondary School zone. Renovate or build afresh.
A short hop to Broadway eateries, buses and local shops, let this prime 704sqm opportunity be your door opener to one of the coast’s hottest postcodes.
Offering further food for thought is the existing freestone-fronted bungalow, debuting on the market for the first time ever. Built in 1925, when Diagonal Road was nothing more than a dirt track, it’s one of very few homes to boast a one-family legacy of over ninety years.
But don’t let sentimentality stand in the way of contemporary ambition. When a generous frontage gives you the flexibility to customize your new home design with valuable side-by-side garaging, there are compelling reasons to start over STCC.
For others, however, a back-to-basics renovation will bring its own rewards; a chance to breathe new life (and meaning) into four well-proportioned rooms running off a central hallway. Where strapped ceilings of long-ago loftiness survey timber boards begging to be liberated from their various floor coverings – a solid starting point on which to hang family fortunes and any future additions STCC.
But, is it liveable? Kitchen, bathroom and toilet facilities are all functional enough for now, while the rear lean-to hosts an epic wall of storage. There’s also a modest two-room extension – think granny flat, extra bedrooms, work-from-home opportunity – to tide you over while you plan and save.
And while you wait, consider the opportunity a backyard blank canvas presents. With its level lawns and edible boundary of grapes and stone fruit, why not toss a pool and outdoor entertaining area into the mix?
As for location, Diagonal Road connects you like never before. Whether it’s an IGA, chemist, hairstylist, newsagent, bakery or chicken shop across the street, Jetty Road and Westfield Marion shopping experiences, beach walks, cool cafes or premier schools – Glenelg Primary, St Peter’s Woodlands, Sacred Heart, Brighton Secondary – your pick of the best is only minutes away.
Secure the future you’ve always dreamed of and get your foot in the door of a suburb that sells itself.
