This double fronted Federation home in Hurlstone Park is the ultimate family home waiting to be restored. Situated in a prime position on a corner block, the home is just a stone’s throw from Hurlstone Park station and the suburb’s best parklands and shopping strips. The original federation style home has a generous floorplan, but is in need of some serious renovation and refurbishment. The ultimate renovators delight!
The three bedroom home is built on solid foundations, evident in the stunning original brick facade. Just take a look at some of the surrounding homes to see what a restoration could result in. Inside the home has many valuable original features including ornate high ceilings, fireplaces in the living room and two bedrooms, Federation architraves, picture rails and the original timber sash windows.
The current layout, which is spacious enough to be restored as is, includes three large double bedrooms at the front of the home and a large office, or fourth bedroom looking onto the large back garden. There are two decent sized bathrooms, one with a bath; and a generously sized separate laundry has access via the back garden. The original kitchen is in need of a complete renovation, and the removal of the adjoining wall would open it up to make a spacious open living dining space. A rumpus room at the rear could also be opened up to extend the living area. The formal living room near the front of the home is spacious and with some TLC could be a glamorous formal lounge with its high ornate ceilings and original fireplace.
12 Railway Street Hurlstone Park is situated on a huge corner block, boasting approximately 448 sq metres of level land. The double street frontage and corner position offer plenty of room for a driveway and vehicle access, perhaps even the luxury of a double garage. The level backyard gets plenty of sunshine making it perfect for a kids play area. The possibilities of development at this property are endless, whether you choose to renovate and restore, or a complete knock down and rebuild to create your dream home.
This is a not to be missed opportunity to secure a property at the lower end of the Hurlstone Park price spectrum, with all the freedom to create exactly the home you want. This area is highly sought after for families and young professionals, with prime access to schools, amenities and the adjacent Cooks River parklands.
