At the rear of the property, the retro kitchen/meals area overlooks a stunning pergola and decking for entertaining, together with a garden that already has a cultivated vegetable patch.
Both bathrooms have been tastefully and sympathetically renovated. The property also has central heating throughout, a grey water system and a water tank.
A family could easily move in and make this their forever home, or enjoy the scope to personalise the property with recreational facilities, larger modern garaging or extend (subject to Council approval, past permit and plans are available to amend and resubmit).
Opportunities of this calibre are seldom offered and this one will excite astute buyers who enjoy original heritage homes. Make an appointment to inspect today.
