With ideal property becoming increasingly more difficult to find in this blue chip location, this really is one to strongly consider.

The home on the site is a two storey timber framed house, Art Deco styled and clad in fibro, constructed in 1944. There is also a large shed at the rear of the property with access to Wordsworth Street. Access to the house is from Wordsworth Street via a large 1200mm wide ramp, giving wheelchair access to the upper level.

Interior is basically late 40's era, but the kitchen has been totally replaced recently and improvements made to the bathroom. The house has also recently been completely rewired so meets all current safety requirements with safety switches etc.

The upper level has two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, formal dining room, lounge room, sewing room, music room and internal stairs leading downstairs. All rooms are generously sized. There is also a large rear deck off the kitchen which is half covered. The ceiling space is insulated, there are ceiling fans in some rooms and a skylight in the kitchen.

Downstairs is unique, featuring a laundry, a large workshop, office area, photographic darkroom and a large home theatrette with adjoining bar area and separate projection room. The theatrette originally seated 32 people. (please note plant and equipment for theatrette and darkroom is not included and most has been removed)

The outdoor areas of the property are all garden, with ponds and paths throughout. While overgrown at present, the gardens feature a large collection of exotic plants and trees collected since the 1940's.

Due to its size and location this is a desirable property and would appeal to a number of different buyers with different plans for its development... Come see the potential before it's gone!
