Original Gem is Ready to be Polished
This lovely retro home deserves a standing ovation, for it has quietly and faithfully housed the one family since it was built, in the 1960s. Apart from all the familiar love and life that's passed through its doors, the continuity of ownership means it's almost totally and blessedly original. Lovers of mid-century design will appreciate the features of the era, which start at the decorative wrought iron front gate. Mint green weatherboards and a sloping flat roofline are also straight from the sixties. Inside, find a frosted glass entranceway, high ceilings, decorative cornice and a very cool, very retro kitchen in great working order. The floorplan consists of a front loungeroom and an open-plan kitchen and dining space, three bedrooms, a combined bathroom/laundry, separate loo and rear vestibule. The lounge has a gas heater set into its brick hearth, an air conditioning unit, and a period feature pendant light. The gorgeous dove grey-and-white kitchen has all the fifties trimmings, including an aluminum-edged Laminex benchtop, overhead glass display cabinet, curved shelves and a slow combustion stove - beside a modern gas upright counterpart! The home is set at the front of a 1079m2 block, on the corner of High and Fir streets. The backyard has a classic old shed/carport and is otherwise open to your imagination. Take advantage of two street frontages and investigate subdivision, subject to council approval. The location, by the YCW football oval, with the Bendigo Creek Trail beyond, makes it a brilliant development opportunity. Worth a nod is the gracious old peppercorn on the wide side nature strip, which reaches over to shade the backyard. It's been a loyal friend to this place for decades. The options here are many, but surely must start with the sympathetic renovation of this much-deserving home.
