This split-level property, taking advantage of its sloping block to architectural benefit, has fabulous panoramic views that include a clear view of the city skyline, the Maribyrnong River, parkland and Flemington Racecourse.

Located at the end of a ‘50s era cul-de-sac and a stone’s throw from parkland, the location is coveted and the views, very rare indeed.

This property is a land-acquisition opportunity for the discerning developer looking for a multi-residence development location (STCA) or for those inspired to renovate this unique build that has the promise to become a dynamic residence with some of the best views in Melbourne.

The tiered design begins with a double garage and small courtyard with out building to the right.

Up older-style concrete and paved external side-stairs, you reach the entry, where french-style doors open to a large living space with floating floorboards.

Sliding doors lead to a large terrace.

There is a powder room on this level as well as a carpeted storage room.

Up an ‘80s-era black gloss staircase to the second level, you can see the opportunity to leverage off the fantastic views this property enjoys.

There are two balconies off this area, with floor-to-ceiling windows making sure every bit of the views are captured.

The ’80s style kitchen beyond the meals and living space is simple and in original condition.

Three bedrooms are also in original condition, are carpeted and have built-in robes relevant to the era.

The bathroom is located next to a separate shower and second powder room.

There’s a paved courtyard where retaining walls have been used to create useable outdoor spaces.

The sideway could be a great second garden space.

It is within walking distance of Victoria University and a three-minute drive to all there is to love about Footscray.

Here is a property on one of the best streets in Footscray, close to the culture the suburb is famous for.
