'Reno the Original, Build The Dream’
Step out of the past and into the future in today’s most family-wise locale. Built in 1940 and beautifully maintained by the same family ever since, this classic brick beauty comes with around 715sqm of family-wise land and Hampton’s most family-friendly location.
Take inspiration from the neighbours and build a dream home for a new era within a walk of the primary school and South Rd colleges, a kick to Castlefield Reserve, and a weekend wander to Hampton St. Or capitalise on this prime Bayside position with a rewarding dual occupancy development vision (subject to Council approval).
But don’t be too quick to move past the existing three bedroom home. A superior example of the era offered in immaculate vintage condition, this superbly solid home retains every late period detail including high deep-corniced ceilings, rich timberwork and beautiful tapestry brick mantles. There’s even the original airing cabinetry in the vintage kitchen!
Updated for today with a streamlined easy-access bathroom plus second WC, and a gas-log fire plus air-conditioner, this wonderful one-owner home is set in groomed gardens with a lush fernery, big backyard and two-car garage plus workshop. A solid base for future renovation, this comfortable home is, at the very least, a rentable option until it’s time to build the dream.
