This Renovation Project Near Croydon's Queen Street Will Have You At hello
- 5 Beds
- 2 Baths
- 1 Car
Grab a coffee to go and get stuck in. A 4-bedroom return veranda villa on a corner block deserves a second coming in line with its stylish surrounds, a short walk to Queen Street cafs and a train commute that's covetably quick - just two stops.
For those with the spirit of adventure (and a city day job), an air-conditioned granny flat with all mod cons offers ideal digs for an on-site project manager or after-hours renovator with DIY passion burning in their soul. (Bunnings stores at Woodville and Prospect are super handy for those determined to go it alone.)
Long term, your one-bedder with bathroom and ample 6m x 5.6m open-plan could furnish independent dreams for aging parents, transiting teens or stay-awhile guests, or yet yield a nice little earner with its own separate entrance off Harriet Street. Rear access that will undoubtedly be an asset during the lifetime of the renos and facilitate off-street parking of the garage or carport kind STCC.
Blessed with corner prominence and a duo of sunny freestone facades dressed in sign-of-the-times brick quoins and topped with fine chimneys, the main residence reveals an upper-crust past that's coming full circle again
Ready to stage a return to dream family abode.
Let solid bones and a lavish original footprint - seven main rooms plus a sunroom, bathroom, laundry and walk-in store - headlined by a living room of some 28sqm alone, guide your renovation story.
And while the sixties and seventies have made their mark in the style stakes, a little vim and vigour will quickly unveil the polished boards and fresh family canvas you crave. A rethink of the rear is warranted but can wait.
With lifestyle supplied spontaneously in nearby Queen Street, grab coffee to go en route to train and playground, browse designer vintage at One Small Room, or bag a table at any one of the footpath cafes in your fashionable neck of the woods.
Inner-west chic and a reno opportunity bar none; only Thomas tempts like this.
