19 RICHMOND TERRACE, RICHMOND
2 beds, 2 bath, 0 cars
This two-bedroom cottage ticks all the boxes in the real estate lexicon for a home on Richmond Hill ... free-standing, double-fronted, north-facing and two off-street parking spots.
The home has combined its original features with an open-plan renovation at the rear, leading onto a paved courtyard which benefits from the northern orientation.
A central light-filled living area, comprises lounge, dining and a kitchen with a large island bench. Two bedrooms, one with wall-to-wall robing, a family bathroom with laundry fittings and separate toilet complete the interior.
However, there is still great potential to renovate further or extent, subject to council approval, to meet the requirements of a growing family.
Jellis Craig agent Luke Schickerling said Richmond Hill was one of the most desirable of locations in the area and to find a double-fronted home with off-street parking for two cars at this price-point, nigh-on impossible.
"The home maintains all of its period features and detail," he said. "It has got the classic bull-nosed verandahs, arches, cornices - all the period detail that you would like to see, even in the renovated parts. Arches are in place and it has the original sash windows.
"Still, there is room to put one's individual stamp or for further renovation. There are some interesting scenarios possible with a lot of land on the west side of the 130sqm block."
The property is ideally situated close to the restaurants and nightspots of the area as well as in easy walking distance of the MCG and other sporting venues. It is a stroll to most local destinations as well as public transport, with Richmond Station close by, as well as Swan St trams.
The home comes with split system heating and cooling and is listed for auction on August 20.
PRICE GUIDE: $1.2m to $1.3m
