Rescue Remedy Required!

SOLD - This listing was sold in December 2019
One of the hallmarks of good property buying is the proverbial "worst house, best street" scenario. This is what is on offer here with this circa 1890s two level cottage in blue-chip Mt Victoria. Yes, it's tired and yes, there's a project here for those with vision and energy, but there's still so much going for this 120+ year old property that has been a happy home for countless tenants and owners. Largely built with native timbers, with some alterations over the decades, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms (which both need repair and upgrading), a sizeable open plan living/dining room and a superb, sunny garden crying out for a makeover. The kitchen is largely original - but functioning - and there's a second w/c and washhouse outside. Surrounded by beautifully renovated villas in this neighbourhood, you can see what is possible. This is a real opportunity for astute renovators, builders, and champions of character homes - LIM and builder's reports available - don't miss out on this rare chance to own in Mt Vic - see you at the open homes!
AUCTION: Friday 13 Dec 12:00 p.m (unless sold prior)
