Character family home – first sale in 77 years!
“This is literally a once in a lifetime opportunity, with a home that hasn’t been sold since its debut back in 1940. A wonderful chance to restore or simply adore…”
• 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom solid brick home
• Built in 1940 and owned by the same family ever since
• Gorgeous character features throughout
• Ample 613sqm block including single lock up garage
• Impressive panoramic views of the lake and ocean
• Front sunroom and sunny north facing backyard
• Ideal for a 21st century restoration project!
A lot may have changed since 1940, but this home on the high side of one of Port’s view-tastic streets has retained perfect bones and all the right hints of character within its unique brick construction. What’s more, it has been lovingly held in the same family since the day it was born – and now it’s ready for a new chapter!
The story here is one of a good old-fashioned quality. Solidly built and showing off its period features at every turn, including 9-foot ceilings, cornices, picture rails and timber floorboards. Of course, along with sought after character comes a little elbow grease and vision to restore to its former glory – but the inspiration is all here.
Natural light is never far away, along with the views – best enjoyed in the street-facing sunroom (ideal as an office or studio). The remainder of the floor plan is of the era – with real potential to open the whole thing up and play with the spaces.
Those spaces are three bedrooms, a lounge, sunroom, separate dining room, bathroom (updated in recent times), kitchen, along with a central hallway. A separate laundry (with second toilet) is located out the back, along with the single garage. Solar panels have also been added.
Maybe it’s the unique brickwork, the sun-filled yard or the water views, but this home has a real character to it – which wouldn’t be lost in any modernisation you may choose to do. It’s certainly a rare creative opportunity for savvy buyers. And it’s certainly worth contacting the Robert Dimovski Team about today on 0418 868 978.
