4a Ebden Street,
Bring Back the Character or Bring in the Bulldozer!Auction Location: On Site.
Auction | Monday 2nd July at 1:00pm On Site.
Please note, this is a freestanding home on its own title and not a dual occupancy.
The block is generous, there's a great north aspect to work with and there's no heritage. The 70's were a strange decade - a time when slick talking aluminium window salesmen convinced well meaning home owners into removing beautiful timber sash windows and replacing them with aluminium - a low maintenance choice, yes but aesthetically pleasing, no. Other than this, 4A Ebden Street has all of the original character of it's 1940's roots.
Built of the famous 'Canberra Reds' and full brick in construction, you'll find 9 foot ceilings and even the original Metters stove in the Kitchen. Under the carpet, there will be timber floors to polish and there is potential aplenty and lots of fun to be had. As mentioned, theres a great northerly aspect to the long left hand flank of the block, so if you choose to extend, there is plenty to work with. Of course, you could simply decide to start again and with 792m2 of land, at the city end of Ainslie, you will struggle to go wrong.
The location is worth noting because its walking distance from the famous Ainslie shops, as well as the wonderful Mt Ainslie Nature Reserve and the very hip Braddon precinct. The position is slightly elevated, so if you chose to build up, we have no doubt that you would have views, not only to Black Mountain and the Brindabellas, but across the CBD itself.
They are not making any more of these and not producing any more land in Ainslie and even better, the owners have made a definite decision to sell this at auction, so don't delay, come, see, buy!
