Rare Dream Site (1,472 sqm) - Balwyn High School Zone

Developers, families and renovators, now is the time to realise your dream in the coveted Balwyn High School zone. This huge 1,472 sqm (approx.) allotment, boasting broad frontage of 27.91m (approx.), is the perfect site on which to build your new grand luxurious residence with space for a pool or perhaps a tennis court. Alternatively, subdivide and build two new prestige homes (STCA), taking advantage of the north-facing rear aspect and potential beautiful views towards the Whittlesea ranges with a second storey.

Currently on site is a Victorian weatherboard residence built in 1890. One of the area's original homes (not heritage-listed), it's been held for over 52 years and could possibly be restored.

In a pretty garden setting, behind a picket fence and double gates, you'll discover easy access, ample off street parking and a double carport. The home has had some modifications and needs work, but promises you yesteryear's charm, from the soaring high timber panelled ceilings, diamond rosettes, claw foot bath and traditional verandahs, to the thick cornices, big rooms, natural light and serene garden outlooks.

Two bedrooms and a sitting room or third bedroom (with wood fire heater and mantelpiece) are zoned off the vast hallway. A large bathroom (with claw foot bath and screen) and laundry complement these. The kitchen/meals area features a combustion stove, while the formal dining room has French door access to the verandah and tranquil, private garden.

Land dimensions: 27.91m x 52.43m/53.08m (approx.).

This most prestigious address is opposite Maranoa Gardens and Beckett Park; walking distance to Balwyn village, 109 tram, buses, Balwyn Primary and Fintona Girls' School. Close to leading public and private schools, Boroondara Sports Complex, Balwyn shopping precinct and cinema, shopping at Westfield Doncaster and the Eastern freeway.
