Californian Dreams of a Bright Future

On a large block of 654 sqm (approx.), this largely original, 3-bedroom, 1920s California Bungalow is a rare find that offers an incredible opportunity to create a bright future. Lovingly maintained by the same family for over 40 years, the home offers a rich character and strong bones to attract renovators, while also presenting a brilliant chance to extend, to completely rebuild or even to redevelop (STCA).
Inside a broad entrance hall, the leadlight windows, fine ceiling detail and picture rails indicate the home's heritage as it flows to a largely original kitchen / meals with semi-attached dining and a cosy lounge room. The potential here is undeniable.
Set behind a beautifully manicured front garden, the home presents superbly from the street with a welcoming front veranda and traditional pillars, whilst also offering split system heating / cooling, a lock-up garage, a carport and a long driveway that can accommodate several more vehicles while offering space for children to play.
The backyard is deep with established trees, veggie patches and the strong suggestion that an extension or multi-residential destiny could be on the cards.
Just a leisurely stroll from Regent St and its vibrant cafe scene, great shops, Preston market, Regent Railway Station and Tram 11 on Gilbert Road, the home is also well-serviced by fine schools and city-bound trams.

Statement of Information

Owners Notes

What we love about this home:
This is family home that has been in the family for 40 years. When it was first purchased, it was renovated. It is on a large block. The backyard was used as large veggie patch. This was the family matriarchs’ home and has given the family many happy and unforgettable memories. It is the first home the family had when they first migrated to Australia.

What we love about this suburb:
Sitting in the heart between Reservoir and Preston, this suburb has always been full of growth. Walking distance to the Regent train station, Gilbert Road tram 11, bus stop, Preston Market, short drive into the city, great schools and easily accessible amenities, it is the place to be with most things only a short walk away. Maritana Avenue is a quiet street with very friendly neighbours. It is your classic Australian neighbourhood, where neighbours have become friends over the years and are always there to help and support each other.

Why we are selling:
As one chapter closes another one opens. This was the first family home. 32 grandchildren were raised in this house.
