Located on the ‘Paris’ side of Invermay Road and set amongst charming cottages and homes, “Inverleigh” at 16 Albion Street, Invermay (c1900) presents as a wonderful opportunity for purchasers to continue with the restoration and improvement of one of only a handful of double storey homes in the suburb.
With commanding street presence, this once grand home longs for new owners to continue the downstairs renovation with a flexible floorplan and simply charming features to work with. Enter the wide hallway to soaring ceilings, fabulous polished floorboards, incredibly ornate ceiling roses, decorative and original fireplaces and generously sized rooms. A large, open plan space has been created at the rear of the home and provides a terrific opportunity to design a fabulous living space and kitchen that could open to the sunny rear yard.
Much of the hard work has been completed with under floor ventilation to assist with airflow beneath the home, insulation in the ceiling, external walls and some flooring as well as the utilisation of recycled old growth forest timber.
A majestic timber staircase leads to the renovated upper level with four roomy bedrooms, all enjoying expansive, elevated views. Along with a modern bathroom with freestanding claw foot bath, walk-in shower and separate toilet, a laundry and kitchen/dining space has also been accommodated upstairs.
Positioned on a large 970m2 (approx.) block there are fittingly old historic sheds now in poor condition but once original horse stables and there is good off street parking for at least five vehicles.
Conveniently located in a quiet, leafy street, close to the local park and leisurely stroll to Heritage Forest, UTAS Stadium, the iconic Star Theatre and local eateries and retail stores. Only a few minutes’ walk to the nearby supermarket, medical centre and vet surgery and easy walk to local primary schools and the Inveresk Precinct which houses the Museum along with the current and future University campuses. Even walk to town in under thirty minutes!
Eagerly awaiting a transformation with potential galore, if you are looking for a restoration project, please call me today to arrange an inspection – I look forward to showing you through.
