Thirty Marigold Street is part of the rich, familiar tapestry of the inner-west. The facade is one of many post-war ‘spec’ homes built in the area, the very picture of the Australian dream of old.
This property’s location and its large block size are clear drawcards, whether for a developer or a young family with a view to renovate.

The triple-gabled weatherboard opens to a cosy hall where three bedrooms are off to the right.
All three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, two are carpeted and the main bedroom has floating floorboards.
The central bathroom was recently renovated and has a twin-basin vanity and a double-length frameless shower. Custom cabinetry has also been installed here, creating good storage.
Across the hall is the kitchen and family-meals area.
The kitchen has hardwood cabinetry, a brand-new Blanco oven and a six-burner gas cooktop.
A servery window from the kitchen opens to a large extension which includes a rumpus room (that takes almost the whole width of the house), powder room and laundry.
Beyond the meals area there is a cosy living area which gets plenty of natural light.
The block, of about 650 square metres, allows plenty of room for a big backyard. There’s a paved dining area with shade sails directly off the back of the house and several mature trees.
A backyard studio with power and a small deck out the front is a fantastic addition.
The lock-up double garage leads to off-street parking for two more cars.
Located within walking distance of Altona Gate Shopping Centre, St Leo’s Catholic Primary School plus Altona North Primary School, it’s a great central location for young families.
The bus on Millers Road takes you to the city, the bus to Newport Station passes by the house.
So whether you preserve the facade and renovate, develop or live in and update over time, the location and opportunity this little Aussie gem represents cannot be disputed.
