Subdivide or Reside? You Decide!

SOLD - This listing was sold in June 2018
Shakespeare's signature, sightings of the Loch Ness monster, the correct use of an apostrophe and 2,390sqm sections in Bishopdale are all things that are scarce as hen's teeth these days, but the latter, at least, is available right now. However, with 2 driveways off 2 roads, multiple options to subdivide, a gorgeously retro 1970s boomerang-shaped house, an enormous 2 storey workshop (with 3-phase power), multiple carports, sheds and a lined studio - you'll have to be quick if you're hoping to snap this real rarity up come auction day.

Downsizing to a retirement complex, the current owners had the foresight to buy two adjoining sections in 1964 and spent many hours determining the perfect spot for their fab, shagadelic home. Architecturally ahead of its time, with a mono-pitched sloping roof, large expanses of glass with high-louvered windows to control air flow in and out of the home, the house is perfectly positioned to capture all day sun and warmth. Offering spacious living, 4 bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes, and the master having private views across the spacious grounds) and excellent flow to an expansive deck, the 70s vibe could be amplified with appropriate d├ęcor and styling, or updated altogether with a contemporary make-over.

Developers and investors will surely see the golden opportunity that exists here, with the chance to build up to 4 homes (Council conditions apply) on this site, while home owners looking for a family home to raise their kids, will treasure the huge parcel of land confident in the future value of the section with its sub divisible options. Any potential purchaser should be aware, however, that some serious repairs are required to one end of the house where the passage of time and a patch of unstable soil have been less than kind.
