Freestanding Home With Huge Potential In Quiet Pocket Mins To Beach
An incredible opportunity, an exciting chance… This much-loved 3 to 4 bedroom freestanding family home presents delightful living just minutes to schools, shopping, and a quick trip to Coogee and Clovelly beaches, complete with LUG. Set on an expansive 347sqm (approx.) corner block with access from 3 sides, it blends period features with updated touches to form a house of light-filled interiors with huge scope for an exciting range of options, beautifully positioned opposite the iconic Farnam House, owned by the late Fred Hollows.
Wrapping around the corners of Farnam Ave and Alison Rd and presenting to the street in charming fashion, the 1940-built home opens to a radiant living area, a versatile space for a relaxed lifestyle with soaring ceilings. Three bedrooms with built-in robes adjoin this space, the master with spacious study/office, while a large dining area is a fine zone with adjacent large gas kitchen. A flexible-use TV room/4th bedroom is handy, whilst a large sun-blessed family area with separate laundry overlooks a sunny paved yard with easy access to the LUG.
In good condition as-is, it also presents the outstanding prospect of a range of options. With the key factor of being zoned R3 for Medium Density, all options are thus on the table (STCA). The new owner may wish to do a light update or perhaps more comprehensively renovate or rebuild from the ground up, utilising the generous block-size to create a dream home, perhaps adding a 2nd level to grant sea views (all STCA). Alternatively, other options may also potentially be on the cards in light of the in-place R3 zoning - the options here are wide and enticing (all STCA).
Held in the same family for 30 years, the coming-to-market of this home represents a significant opportunity in this prized pocket. With LUG, laundry, and big outdoor space/yard, it is ripe for its next chapter. Just minutes to Randwick Junction and Coogee Beach, with quick access to local schools, parks, and UNSW, with good light-rail and bus links to the CBD, it all adds up to being something very special, awaiting the perceptive buyer.
