Federation Home on 919sqm Block With DA Approval For 5 Townhouses

An outstanding opportunity awaits in this prime 'Waratah Heights' location, this period residence is sited on a north-facing elevated 919sqm parcel with approx 18m frontage. It will certainly catch the eye of every buyer with a sense of value, from the seasoned renovator to those looking to build a stunning new family home, a dual occupancy utilising the rear lane, or make the most of the council approved plans for 5 bespoke townhouses.

Set back from the street bordered by established gardens, the classic Federation façade of "Thainston" (Circa 1917) welcomes you inside to a generously proportioned floorplan that ideally caters to family life. The spacious lounge and dining sit at the heart of the home where a previous extension has created a versatile family room and two further bedrooms, 4 in total. Whilst both bathrooms and the kitchen could benefit from an overhaul, their proportions and layout offer an ideal canvas for either a cosmetic refresh or a full contemporary makeover. Step out the back door to an undercover outdoor entertaining area and a garden lined with trees and established flowerbeds. The wide block includes a long driveway to a double carport, while a rear lane provides access to a double garage. On your doorstep, Waratah Shopping Village, two colleges, two primary schools, regular buses and the Calvary Mater Hospital.
