About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in March 2019.

Tucked away at the end of a quiet, tree lined cul de sac, this fabulous home is the perfect place to find some peace and inspiration.

Solidly built in the 1960's there are some special creative touches and a definite vintage vibe here, which can be enjoyed just as it is. However, there is certainly room to modernise and enhance, perhaps creating a funky blend of 20th & 21st century style?

Situated on a gorgeous 921sqm stream-bound section, with mature trees and plantings, this is a peaceful and private hideaway. Nestled to one side of the garden, a spacious studio with private bathroom & heat-pump, was once the base for the renowned artist Don Peebles to create some of his works. Light, bright and airy, this is a unique and versatile space. So, whether you are inspired to pick up your paintbrush, or pick up a wine glass and relax here, you will certainly enjoy the benefits that this lovely space offers this already good-sized home.

In an ever-popular location, zoned for excellent schools, close to Parks, the University, public transport and just a short distance to the CBD & airport, this is sure to appeal to a wide range of buyers. Our out of town vendors are not coming back, so their instructions are clear and they want this sold on Auction Day. Don't miss your opportunity to secure a lovely home in a leafy setting!
