Held within the one family since its late 1940’s construction, this treasured home sits on a sprawling 744m2 near the exclusive Balmoral-Morningside border.
Immaculately maintained, solidly constructed and boasting a spacious floorplan, the north-east facing home promises immediate family liveability. The inside offers plenty of original character, featuring high ceilings with ornate cornices, rich timber picture rails and a charming leadlight front door. All bedrooms and living spaces are generously proportioned, while both kitchen and bathroom are spotless.
Outside, expanses of lawn will delight families of any age, while the elevated block presents more than enough designated space for a boat, caravan or whole fleet of trade vehicles. A bricked barbeque area, large shed and workshop also feature.
Investors wishing to landbank the property would have no difficulty obtaining immediate solid rental returns, while scope certainly exists for a value-adding renovation. Alternatively, take advantage of the rare opportunity to build a new family home on a large block just 6km from the CBD*.
Either way, this expansive and versatile family address is desirably positioned just footsteps from transport, the locally renowned “Monocle” café and a childcare centre. It is also a short walk to a choice of schools including Sts Peter and Pauls, Morningside State School, CHAC, and Balmoral State High, playground, bike track, Skate Park and the popular Bulimba Bowls Club or Beelarong Community Farm. Less than five minutes from restaurants, supermarkets and recreational amenities at either Morningside or Oxford Street Bulimba, it boasts quick access to the airport and coast via the Gateway motorway.
Perfect for now, but packed with possibilities, this is a great opportunity to “buy big” in one of the inner-east’s most sought-after suburbs.
