This earlier-era weatherboard is fine to occupy as is while potential is considered and dreams are discussed, especially in regard to the block of about 760 square metres – with a frontage of about 15.3 metres.
It’s prime redevelopment turf, subject to council approval, and in a location that ups the temptation factor.
Bayside P-12 College, Newport Gardens primary school and kinder, and Loft Reserve parkland are on the doorstep, as are Mason Street shops.
The house has three grey-carpeted bedrooms (ornate cornices and picture rails), a couple of bathroom areas, and a laundry with toilet.
The kitchen, with timber cabinetry and gas cooker, adjoins meals and sitting areas, while a carpeted lounge room with wood heater, ceiling fan and air-conditioner is at the back.
An older pergola is out back, as is extensive concreting, a couple of garden beds and a mature tree.
The deep backyard indicates the scope to carry out big plans, and a wide concrete driveway leads to a substantial carport and storage.
