Like a determined dieter’s new year resolution, there’s no sugar coating to be had in describing this aging brick abode. Built in a semi rural neighbourhood in the reliable 1960s, ownership has remained in the same family for 56 years as the changing landscape around such has come of age. The 607sqm (approx.) land area gives lie to a range of possibilities for developers to demolish, relocate or rebuild. Then again, keen renovators who seek an entry to the Mount may take one look at the latent potential and envision a transformative do up to substantially revitalise the dwelling and surrounding grounds.

The largely original interior has native timber flooring and a classic Beazley esque floorplan with separate lounge handily fitted with newish heat pump. The adjoining dining area faces north for good natural light and is open plan with the kitchen. Again, some past modernisations are in evidence while the back door leads from here to the porch and washhouse area. Three bedrooms all have built in closets while the bathroom has incorporated a wet shower and adjacent toilet is separate. At the rear of the section, an oversize single garage integrates some workshop space which could be a handy lock up during the renovation, with parking galore for tradie’s trucks and utes. A mature magnolia in the front garden is nature’s noise absorber while erecting a more robust wall and gates would create more privacy.

In zone for Omanu and Arataki School and a short walk along the road to Bayfair’s retail precinct, the property sits opposite Omanu Golf Course and fringes arterial routes while the beach and airport are a mere five minute or so drive away.

Whilst not for the fainthearted, this home is more than ready for a wholehearted commitment to the transformation it so richly deserves. The owners are ready to relinquish their childhood legacy hence it’s your story to write now.
