Built as workers’ barracks, converted as a rooming-house, and facing the future with unique period home potential …this approx 470 sqm property is an historic buy! Situated in a tightly-held section of homes on the Bay St retail strip, this c.1865 solid-brick Victorian has lived many lives – first as quarters for the area’s market gardeners, then as a registered boarding-house, and now as uniquely versatile renovation, investment or re-development opportunity STCA.
Stretching deep beyond a traditional double-fronted floorplan to offer eight principal rooms, two kitchens and two bathroom areas, this substantial home retains all the grace and space of its original plan with high ceilings, grand proportions, a wide arched hall and immensely solid construction, including bluestone thresholds for the rear, veranda-access rooms.
Take inspiration from the neighbours and work within the boundaries of the Heritage Overlay to create a landmark Victorian villa in this well-resourced location. With rare ‘blank canvas’ potential, this superbly solid home offers superior family position within a short stroll of the central Brighton private schools, the station, cafes and Golden Mile beachfront. Subject to Council approval, there may even be scope to re-think this prime land with an additional dwelling or an alternative use.
Alternatively, take a relaxed approach, continue the current use and capitalise on existing registration for eight boarding-house rooms offers an exceptional return on investment …until you decide to invest the time and creativity to rewrite history here.
