Authentic 1900’s Workers Cottage On Corner Block – Raised To Regulation Height With All The Hard Work Done!
This genuine Workers Cottage is over 100 years old and is full of character and charm. With a change in forward plans imminent for the current Owner, an opportunity to purchase this fabulous property has just come about.
A perfect opportunity for a buyer who appreciates the history of such a unique property and relishes the opportunity to highlight and enhance what has been hidden for so long. The house has already been raised and tastefully built in on ground level (doubling the living space), so with all the challenging components of the renovation already complete, the new owners’ own style can be let loose!
The house was raised to regulation height in 2015 and renovations were commenced soon after. All work has now been completed and the final Building Certificate has been issued with full Council Approvals in place. To date, renovations have included:
– Brand new structural slab (fully approved & Engineer Certified)
– Brand new footings and stumps
– Roof refurbishment
– Brand new front stairs, rear stairs and railings
– All new plumbing and wiring
– Brand new driveway
Features of the home include:
– Soaring 10-foot ceilings
– Beautiful hoop pine floors
– VJ timber interior walls
– 3 bedrooms (upstairs)
– Open plan living
– Semi original kitchen & bathroom
– 4th bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette & open space (downstairs)
The possibilities for further renovation are exciting as the block is so well situated. Upstairs you may choose to add a deck, reassign the floorplan or enhance with clever cosmetic touches. The downstairs area is huge, ready for you to create a rumpus room, develop dual living opportunities, enjoy extra living areas or simply take advantage of the massive storage space. This would be a great space from which to operate a home based business (with good road exposure) or generate extra income by renting out the lower level.
The elevated 419m2 corner block is only minutes from the beautiful Manly Waterfront and captures fantastic bay breezes. Position is paramount with easy access to popular local schools, the Manly Shopping Village precinct (with cafes, boutiques and restaurants) and lots of parkland. For commuters, bus transport is practically at your door and the Manly Train Station is within walking distance.
For Home Owners this is a chance to embrace the laid back bayside lifestyle in a special character home. For Investors, the property has the potential to return a healthy rental income either as two separate properties (if you wish to fully take advantage of the dual living opportunities) or as a whole house with an expected rental return of approximately $550 per week.
