About this listing
This beautiful turn-of-the-century home boasts superb character including its very own turret. Generously proportioned, it has been updated to offer open-plan living and other comforts, while losing none of its charm. Now offered for sale 'as is, uninsured', several options are yours to consider: live in as is, repair, renovate or land bank.

North-facing open-plan living with doors to decking is a welcome feature in a home of this vintage. Timber floors flow to a light-filled modern kitchen, while ornate French doors link an elegant north-facing lounge. Three bedrooms, including a huge master, and a study, plus a fourth bedroom (or third living) with a delightful turret space, give this property flexibility for family living or working from home. Two bathrooms, one with claw-foot bath, and a separate laundry ensure great practicality. Outside, the 794m2 grounds are a lush botanical paradise, with a double carport and fenced garden.

Handy to Edgeware Village, Merivale and the CBD, it's zoned for St Albans School and Heaton. Opportunities of this calibre don't come along often - call the agent today to register your interest.
