Occupying a wide high-side block (approx 20m frontage) in a prized Essendon neighbourhood, this mid-century classic has been extended and partially renovated and now provides an incredible opportunity for someone to come in and add the finishing touches. High ceilings throughout, the home's generous floorplan comprises an inviting entrance hallway with hand-laid parquetry floors and three carpeted bedrooms (all with robes), dedicated study and central bathroom (incomplete), plus an expansive open-plan living/dining area and adjoining kitchen space (not installed). Here's what has been done - the home is fully restumped along with new weatherboards and cedar windows all-round, new yellow tongue flooring throughout, new plumbing (gas, water and sewerage), new plasterwork and Art Deco-style ceiling roses, plus a range of materials (plasterboards, skirtings, cornice, bricks, insulation and decking) to complete the picture. Add to this an al-fresco area, levelled backyard, levelled front yard with extensive bluestone paving, side driveway to original garage. Moments from the open spaces of Buckley Park, it's also walking distance to primary and secondary schools (zoned to Buckley Park College), trams, cafes, shops and supermarkets, as well as easy access to Essendon Station and Citylink.
