About this listing
Ripe for renovation or redevelopment....the choice is yours with this classic circa 1900 villa on a generous section. The home has been in the same family for 40 years and has been upgraded during their tenure. Retaining many of its original character features, the home is very tidy throughout with generous double bedrooms, two living areas, upgraded bathroom and kitchen, and quality carpet. An attached outbuilding contains a large laundry, second toilet and storage room. An added bonus is a large 35sqm studio built in the 1980's which has a multitude of uses, a workshop, art studio, or hobby room. All of this in a popular location handy to Merivale Mall, Edgeware Village, parks, bus route, cafes and restaurants, and the central city. The land zoning offers potential for redevelopment or the home could be upgraded for modern family living. Plenty of space for children, pets, vege garden and a family cricket pitch. EQC repairs completed. The elderly owner is now in care and the home will be sold. Opportunities like this don't come along every day. Make viewing a priority.
