A GEM TO POLISH
106 Burt Street
MOUNT CLARENCE, WA 6330
Here’s an amazing opportunity to pick up a character home on a good-sized block less than a kilometre from York Street – and all for less than $300,000.
The old fibro and Colorbond house is in need of renovation and restoration, but an investor with a project in mind will reap the rewards many times over.
By retaining the original Jarrah floorboards and the high ceilings with decorative cornices, remodeling the floor plan and replacing the kitchen and bathroom, new owners could transform it into a modern, highly desirable residence.
Good bones are there already, and the home is in sound condition with generous rooms.
A hallway at the main entrance branches off to the bedrooms and living areas.
The lounge is a big, light room with a fireplace, there’s a sizable dining space, and the adjacent kitchen has a practical layout.
An extension at the rear of the original house has produced another living room, which could be used for activities or hobbies. This takes in a wide-ranging outlook towards Mira Mar and round to Mt Clarence, the views shared with an adjoining bedroom.
All four bedrooms are doubles, and the three in the main home have the characteristic decorative ceilings and Jarrah floors. The bathroom is fitted with a shower, vanity and toilet.
Another excellent feature of this property is the workshop at the back. Reached from outside the home, it has workbenches installed and plenty of space for completing DIY projects.
This is enhanced by an adjacent store room, and there’s further storage space under the house.
Also, reached from the outside is the laundry and a second toilet, for the convenience of people working in the shed or the garden.
A rainwater tank, security doors and screens and some original timber windows are other advantages.
Parking at the front is on a driveway separated from the road by a row of bushes, which also afford a degree of privacy for the home.
On the 684sqm block, there’s space for a garage and sheds, for growing veggies and herbs, and for recreation.
Whoever polishes up this gem will gain a lovely home in a top spot and get good returns on their investment.
Primary and high schools are just around the corner, and the city shops, entertainment and facilities are a short stroll away.
It’s priced to sell and offers will be seriously considered – so take a look and recognise the potential presented by this appealing property.
