Perched on the high side of the road in a quiet court is this neat and solid as a rock 1970's brick home that is oozing future possibilities and potential for a discerning buyer! Right in the heart of the highly sought after Lake Weeroona/Bendigo Hospital precinct and a short walk in to the Bendigo CBD, the location speaks for itself in what has become a "boom" pocket of a Bendigo market that is bursting at the seams.
Renovate, extend or remove the existing dwelling (STCA) and develop the vacant block – the choice is yours but whatever you do here, expect to profit accordingly. Take full advantage of the elevated position and maximise the amazing views across the Bendigo skyline. Build up or build more windows and you wont be disappointed with the vantage point that you will enjoy!
In mostly original order throughout but with really solid bones to work with, the floor plan offers three bedrooms that branch off a central hallway – two of which have built in robes. Also off the hallway is the four piece bathroom (check out the sunken bath – a throwback to the era), which is functional but requires some maintenance to comply with tenancy laws if you wish to rent the property. The laundry sits at the back of the very retro kitchen, where even the oven and cook top are the original appliances. These are working fine (they don't make them like they used to) but will need an upgrade to re-rent, and there is plenty of storage thanks to the abundance of timber cupboards and pantry. Completing the internal layout is the spacious main living area, featuring awesome corner windows to take in the views beyond. Split level in design and still wearing the original and very plush carpets (in fabulous order but with timber floors underneath), this area could be truly stunning with some modern ideas. Split system heating and cooling control the temperature to the home.
Outside, the established 794m2 allotment offers space and room for future possibilities such as extension, an amazing alfresco area, or a blank canvass for a dual townhouse development (STCA). There is plenty of access at the side to the rear of the block, whilst a double carport at the front houses off street parking.
Cosmetically enhance, extend, demolish or subdivide (STCA), with good solid bones to work with, some minor maintenance needed to be able to live in or rent out whilst you decide what to do next. Walk to Lake Weeroona, local cafes, Bendigo Hospital and the CBD, this property has all the ingredients to be a very astute purchase! Call now to arrange a private inspection.
