Exceptional Potential on the Banks of Throsby Waters

A tantalising proposition for the aspirational waterfront buyer, this double storey home is peacefully nestled on the banks of Throsby waters on a 352sqm dual access block. In wonderful proximity to lifestyle attributes, it represents an exciting opportunity for seasoned renovators and builders, with scope to add value though a cosmetic update or knock down and rebuild to your own personal design (subject to council approval). Comfortable as is, the home is ideal to live in or rent out while contemplating the potential to renovate or recreate and is currently returning $680 per week.

Nearby you will find the very best Newcastle's inner city has to offer, an easy stroll to popular Tighes Hill Public School, Islington Park, the swing of Beaumont Street's cafes, trains and vintage shops and minutes from waterside walks to Honeysuckle, harbour and beaches.
