Here is an opportunity for those hunting for a project. Whether renovating to move in or flipping, this property has loads of potential.
An almost identical property at 54 Ardoyne Street, on a smaller block – but with three bedrooms, not two – was sold in 2002 for $200,000. It sold on May 6 this year for an astonishing $940,000.

Adrian Kay, the agent representing this property, says that is a clear indicator of how this part of Sunshine is changing.
“This property represents a fantastic flip project for a young couple looking to step into the property market,” he says. “Here, west of central Sunshine, you didn’t used to see those kinds of prices.
“However, that particular result is a clear indicator of where the market in this region is heading. It’s a stand-out opportunity.”
The house at 64 Ardoyne Street, set on the western fringe of central Sunshine, has been maintained by the one family since it was built in the early 1950s.
As is clear from the interiors, it has been a much-loved residence, but due to the era of its construction, the room sizes are larger than in a lot of modern builds.
This particular property also boasts a large backyard thanks to a block size of about 612 square metres.
Blowing out the back could create a large contemporary open-plan living area with ease due to all the space on offer.
There’s also a wide side drive leading to an undercover carport with through access to the backyard.
Two comfortable carpeted bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
The charming weatherboard retains some period features including original facade, floorboards and ’50s-style windows.
The main bathroom was recently updated.
On an old-fashioned, quaint and quiet street, with Arthur Beachley Reserve just a brief amble away and with Koroit Creek trails beyond, this house is in a good location.
