45 Hampden Street,
South Perth, WA
SOLD UNDER THE HAMMER!If you fancy the chance to renovate or you have been looking for a block large enough to build your dream home, this is clearly the 'once in a lifetime' opportunity you have been waiting patiently to find in your lifetime!
Sitting on the highest point of the street, this gracious South Perth residence is being offered for only the second time since it was built in 1929 and the lucky new owners are certain to enjoy it for their lifetime as well.
This lovely Californian Bungalow offers renovators all the features you expect from the wide front verandah to the timber windows as well as the exposed ceiling rafters and it presents as your chance to own a character home with an outstanding address.
Thankfully, the previous owners have resisted the urge to remove all the heritage features so you will find that the decorative ceilings and intricate lead lighting along with the Jarrah door frames as well as picture and dado rails are all intact. However, you will have the sleepouts, fluorescent lights, patterned carpets as well as a small 1980's kitchen to deal with and a large bathroom that has been untouched since the 1960's.
Some interesting history about the property is that there is a second with a front door which is believed to have been the resident doctor's consulting rooms. Also, the property originally included a full-size tennis court but that was sold in the 1980's while retaining an impressive 1,005 m2 making it the largest single land holding in the street.
If building a South Perth statement home is your desire, then this block will fit the bill nicely! You can certainly unleash your imagination on the approximately 23 metre wide by 44 metre deep block while not forgetting the northerly aspect with direct line of sight to the river and city from the highest point on the street!
This address also offers convenient access to public transport, the foreshore, Wesley College and Angelo Street cafes so if you love South Perth, large blocks and character homes, the only decision is whether to make it bigger, make it beautiful or even make it modern.
Whatever you decide, know that you will be etched in history as the third family to call this home so make sure you call Adam because it may be another 70 years before you have the opportunity again!
