CENTRAL CUTIE ON APPROX 1/2 ACRESituated in the heart of Warrnambool just moments from schools, sports, botanical gardens and CBD, this renovated 1950s weatherboard offers charm and character on a lovely deep block with heaps of potential.
Set behind a high front wall and delightful paved courtyard complete with water feature, this lovely home is situated high on the block, enjoying an elevated view to the North, and will impress on inspection. Period features include formal entrance hall, 9' ceilings, decorative cornices and ceiling rosettes, cedar windows and Baltic pine polished floorboards.
Renovations over the past 15 years include some new wiring and new switchboard with safety switches, part replumbing, stunning bathroom with clawfoot bath, gas log fire in the original fireplace and a large pergola with elevated sundeck enjoying views down the block. There are 2 large bedrooms, one with BIRs, and a separate one room sleepout/ playroom; spacious front lounge room leading thru to a formal dining room, mostly original but very neat 1950s kitchen with solid timber benchtops, laundry with handy second toilet and second shower, large sunroom with French doors leading out to the sundeck.
The driveway leads down past the house and round to the large double garage and there is plenty of room here for additional shedding, second dwelling (STCA) or maybe a hobby/ business use. The block is a rare find in Central Warrnambool, measuring approx. 20m wide x 90m deep sloping down to the North, with plenty of open space to enjoy. The block can be subdivided (STCA) but the back approx 20m of the block is unlikely to be built on as it is within the North Warrnambool Flood Study area with levels under review pending works along Russells Creek in late 2017. Neighbours have taken a single block off with a simple 2 lot subdivision; the same idea for this property should present no problems with Planning either.
All in all, this is a very unique Central home, ideal for FHBs, downsizers or investors on a block that must be seen to be believed. Endless possibilities, lots to like in the original house and room to extend further and create a substantial family home if that's what you want.
