Land, Location and Approved Development Potential

House Sold - Essendon West Victoria


Set on a wonderfully wide block (approximately 769sqm), this elevated home provides an immediately comfortable family environment along with outstanding scope to build a new dream home (STCA) or utilize the approved planning permit to construct four stunning new townhouses. Retaining its unique mid-century flavour, the home’s impeccably-presented interior comprises three large bedrooms (all with BIRs), study/fourth bedroom and updated central bathroom, light-filled lounge through to the open dining area and adjoining kitchen with dishwasher. Key features include ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, solid hardwood floors, stained timberwork and original steel-frame windows all-round, laundry and second WC, plus an enormous backyard garden with studio/workshop and garage via side driveway. Endorsed plans highlight four impressive two-storey townhouses – each with 2 or 3 bedrooms, 1 or 2 bathrooms, open-plan living/dining/kitchen areas, private courtyards and garages (one with carport). Moments from the open spaces of Heinz Reserve and walking distance to Buckley Street buses, riverside trails and acres of parkland, it’s also close to some of the area’s most popular schools (including St Bernard’s College) as well as local cafes, restaurants and vibrant shopping precincts. Live in, rent out, rebuild or redevelop – perfect choices either way!
