An untouched time capsule, this gorgeous old-school property presents multiple and diverse opportunities for its incoming owners.

The house was built with the finest makings of its day and has been well-maintained by the sole owners.

And the location is an outright winner – just a block from the inviting hustle and bustle of Alfrieda Street, including library, with St Albans train station and community centre and Victoria University St Albans campus just a little further away.

The pale brick double-gabled house has a wide side drive that leads to a lock-up tandem double car garage with an over-height roof to allow for boat or caravan.

The entry has french doors with original venetians.

Open the front door and every fashionable decor choice of the house’s era can be seen.

They range from floral carpeting, a top-of-the-range gas heater and light fittings in the lounge room, to the pink-tiled bathroom and brown-and-cream colour tiling in the sun room and kitchen.

Star-design hand-layed parquetry flooring is perfectly preserved and awaits discovery beneath the carpet.

The window frames are all steel and could be easily restored.

There are three large carpeted bedrooms in all, the main with a built-in robe.

A trap door in the sunroom leads to a cellar – great for a wine buff or for general storage.

This could be a fantastic investment for a young family looking for a renovation project.

Visit this property to see the past, and perhaps consider your own future.
