1920's Inspiration Awaiting 21st Century Innovation

Built in 1924 for Marion and Fred Osmond on an allotment originally advertised as being equally suited to farming and fruit growing as it was to residential purposes, this residence provides a sought-after example of timber interwar homes built in the district. With very few changes made to its original spaces it has attracted a heritage overlay due to its significance to the district. Sitting on a 4137m2 allotment (approx.) and with the freedom and flexibility of an 1017m2 building envelope, it presents an incredible chance for astute buyers to secure a significant home. Then invest dedication, perspiration and inspiration in a comprehensive restoration creating a stunning contemporary family retreat behind the impressive façade (stca within specific guidelines).

~ 1017 m2 building envelope allows the introduction of sheds, pool, tennis court etc (all stca)
