This beautiful residence presents an invitation to restore it to its former glory and enjoy the true luxury of land amounting to about 1384 square metres.
Such an allotment in the heart of vibrant Williamstown is a rarity.
The block to the side of the residence is on a separate title, however the titles will be sold together on auction day.
There is plenty of encouragement here for those wanting to redevelop the tennis court or stables beside the main block while enjoying the large Victorian house and the good-sized land behind it.
There are so many features to this well-known property.
Rear access is one of many, as are its established trees, close in age to the house itself.
They create an ambience hard to create without the helping hand of time itself.
The main house has a wraparound decked porch.
The house has a large central hall, high ceilings and two large reception rooms with provision to restore the original fireplaces, which have been updated in years gone by.
Large sash windows are in original condition.
What was once a grand formal dining room is being utilised as a pool room. It has clear views of the tennis court opposite.
The central kitchen and meals area is tiled and offers enticing promise.
A later extension at the rear of the house includes the main bathroom, large laundry area and lounge room with a split-system.
Venture outside to find the hallmarks of bygone eras such as an external toilet and
a bricked barbecue, as well as a storage room.
The beautiful old stables have been converted into a self-contained guest house, although it is in need of restoration.
