Dreaming the day

This circa early-1950s house has gorgeous ornate plaster ceilings, tapestry-brick fireplace, and stained timber trims including picture rails.

While the two-bedroom house is definitely liveable as is, it does need lots of attention.

There are approved plans and permits, from design to delivery, for two distinctive townhouses on the block of about 490 square metres – should that be your direction.

On offer will be three fitted bedrooms upstairs, accompanied by a generous retreat space. The main bedroom’s en suite is set to match the refinement of the main bathroom, while a downstairs lounge room could serve as fourth bedroom. The kitchen, described as faultless, will accompany a family-meals space.

Outdoor entertainment will be catered for, while a studio with en suite will perch above a secure garage at both dwellings. A rear laneway will provide garage access.

Adding further attraction is the locale, close to Mason Street hub, Hudsons Road village, schools and two train stations.
