Whatever you do, don't procrastinate... That's right – this 1940's Queenslander cottage is ripe for renovation, and currently has two separate lots of land, totaling 653m2. The options are there for the lucky new owner – renovate the current house, and build on the second lot (subject to Council approval), or perhaps raise and/or extend the house. This much loved home has been in the same family for nearly sixty years, and offers a multitude of opportunities for an astute buyer.
Being in a quiet street, only two blocks walk from the water and close to the shady picnic areas at Shorncliffe beach and pier, it is an ideal area to raise a family. Shorncliffe State School is at the end of the street, as well as a choice of various private schools nearby. It is an easy stroll to Shorncliffe or Sandgate train stations.
The home offers three bedrooms, a dining room and eat-in kitchen, and has VJ walls underneath the linings. With extra high ceilings and fantastic sea breezes, you will hardly need the air-conditioning in the lounge room. The front verandah is the ideal place to enjoy the afternoon breeze and could easily be re-opened to show the original style of house. The timber fretwork above the bedroom doors is in excellent condition. There are security grills on most windows, as well as Roll-a-Shield blinds for extra protection. Underneath the house is fully concreted and can hold two large or three small cars, as well as tons of storage space. The block is fenced and includes a water tank and bush house. A large macadamia nut tree and various fruit trees flourish on this lovely level land.
This truly is a blank canvas where you are only limited by your imagination. This type of opportunity with 2 lots of land is rare in much sought after Sandgate or Shorncliffe, so act now if this is what you have been searching for.
