The Greatest Renovator in Wilston. What a Cracker!Property ID 1837162This is something special. Originally owned in 1900 by Tom Daffurn, a local railway bridge builder and painter, this gorgeous cottage has only changed hands a couple of times in over 100 years. You won't believe the potential of one of Wilston's first homes.
With an enormous 17 metre frontage and situated on a 683 square meters block, the dimensions are in place to build something extraordinary. The pre-war cottage boasts lovely vistas off the rear, and in all its form is a true renovator. It's important to note that the house is perfectly liveable and charming as is so you can move straight in. The current owners bought it years back with plans to do a build, (plans upon request) however their circumstances have changed and have purchased another house to cater for their growing family. Regretfully, they have decided to sell on or before March 25th.
There is a classic wide central hallway with 3 double sized bedrooms and open plan lounge and dining room. It features beautiful high ceilings, wide beaded VJ walls, breezeways, timber floors and a bull nose enclosed front veranda than can be easily opened. There's a genuine warmth and comfort throughout. This home has retained all its original features of the bygone era.
The home is structurally sound and it can easily be transformed into exactly what you want, on your terms. There's an abundance of storage underneath and is surrounded by elegant landscaped gardens. With some creative flair and TLC, this incredible house will no doubt be something truly exceptional in time.
Further features include:
Fully fenced for privacy & pets
Three split system air conditioning units
