Sandstone Splendour Seeking Stylish New Start & Ultimate Prestige
Everything the Grand Tudor was born to be bold, impressive and commanding the finest corner allotment in the whole of Woodville. After 44 years in the same family, this original trophy home is looking for a transformation worthy of its unrivalled contribution to the fine heritage streetscapes of Beaufort Street and The Grove.
It's towering sandstone gables, sweeping bays and exquisite Art Deco leadlight still serve as glowing testimonials to a family home that embodies the loftiest ideals on a magnificent 925sqm block. Even in near-original state, it easily assumes top-ranking status amongst its significantly restored and well-heeled neighbours. So, imagine what it could be renovated and recalibrated to new-millennium appeal!
Built in 1935, the ceremonial entry and formal rooms offer further insight into what has always been a life of privilege and prestige. High ceilings with central decorative motifs, jarrah floors, plate racks, fireplaces and more of that glorious leadlight express the pre-eminence of four principal rooms hidden behind two graceful street frontages, with the flexibility to rezone as your lifestyle and architect decree.
The existing footprint offers four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, (one blissfully bright and modern, the second sharing space with the laundry), a small but functional kitchen and four living areas, with access to ample North-facing pastures from the tiled and much later family room. With key ingredients firmly in place, you may well be tempted to work with what's already here. At any rate, it could be the breather that lets you live/let while plans form.
Asserting pride of position in Woodville, reserve your front row seat to shopping, dining and recreation the length of wonderful Woodville Road, catch the latest movies at Greater Union Cinemas, commute to town by train and avail yourself of local education including Woodville High and Whitefriars Catholic School.
It's a clich, we know, but opportunities like this are few if ever. So, dig deep and dare to dream; because if ever' will be a long time coming again!
