This bygone era beauty is ready to be restored to its former glory, either as a fantastic family home or as an Investment property. The layout of this house is an amazing feat by the Architect that is seldom seen in an original Kensington home.
Comprising 3 large bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms (MES) with 2 of the bedrooms, lounge and the Kitchen interleading onto an open plan living space with lots of natural light. There is a large formal lounge or study and there is a mixture of original Oregon pine, pressed ceilings and beaded stained glass. Under the house there is a storage/ cellar area and there is an outbuilding that needs to be completed.
So if you are looking for a Heritage Home and are looking to renovate a historic gem, call me for your private viewing.
