Character home on 810m2 zoned LMR
Developers or Home Buyers – If you are looking for an elevated inner city renovator character home on a large double block or potential to use the extra land around the house for re-development this rare house and land parcel has just what you require. From the moment you walk through the front door it’s not hard to see why this authentic Queensland Colonial oozing character is so special. A real piece of history affectionately named “Athlone”. In the same family since it was built and featuring all of the much loved classic touches that make this type of home so lovable including high VJ ceiling and walls, stain glass casement windows, French doors and an enclosed L shaped wrap around veranda.
The home showcases pine floorboards and 3 large bedrooms as well as a sleepout/family room. At the heart of the home is the spacious lounge room framed by a number of French doors that open out onto the veranda offering added space and allowing airflow and plenty of natural light. The lounge also features a beautiful ornate archway which can only be described as a work of art. The 2 bathrooms (both with bath tubs) and kitchen are in original condition ready for the next owner to modernise at their own choosing. Adjacent to the kitchen is a breakfast room which could be utilised as a formal dining area for all your special family gatherings. The huge fully fenced yard is a near level blank canvas where the kids can run free. There is possibility to build under the house and utilise more space in this prime position or to use as extra storage area.
Located in central Fairfield means you won’t have to go far for the essentials, the local shopping centre and the Fairfield train station is just a short stroll from the front door. This area also has a lot of parks and good schools nearby and is close to the PA hospital and not far from the Green bridge to access The University of Queensland. On the occasion you would like to travel the short 6km journey into the city there is the option to catch either the bus or train.
They don’t make them like this anymore.
There is an opportunity to capitalise on the land now or in the future.
