IT has been said that every home tells a story and if the walls could talk, there would be many a story to be told with this great old home at 14 Drysdale Street Portarlington.
Coming to auction in September through Neville Richards Real Estate, this is a fantastic opportunity to secure a property in the prized location of Drysdale Street.
Selling agent Trevor McManus said that it was refreshing to be given the opportunity to auction such an honest, well maintained, original 1950s cottage.
“This perfectly located property will be well received within the market place, one which is still seeing properties in high demand,” Mr McManus said.
“New listings in the winter months have been scarce, though buyer numbers are still strong. “With this property being in one of my favourite pockets of old Portarlington, and being so close to everything, we are expecting a great result.”
This well-maintained retro home sits upon a 1,012sqm allotment just a few minutes’ walk to the town centre, bay shore and Port Phillip Ferry.
Full of memories, this property has been held by the same family since its build in 1959.
This quaint, “step-back-in-time” retro home has maintained much of its original character and charm, along with beautiful gardens and an abundance of fruit trees that includes plenty of space for entertaining, gardening, lounging and epic games of hide-and-seek.
Property features include:
- Three spacious bedrooms serviced by central bathroom
- Large kitchen, perfect for the budding chef
- An open-plan dining and lounge with the ambient gas heater
- North-facing sunroom with large windows to capture all the winter sun
- Studio that could be converted to parents/teenager retreat
- Ample storage sheds for gardening tools
- Single lock-up garage
- Subdivision potential subject to council approval.
The Bellarine Peninsula is thriving with activity and the Port Phillip Ferry now running daily to Melbourne Docklands.
Check out the Bellarine “Taste Trail” with farm-gate producers, wineries and award-winning cafes and restaurants.
A wonderful holiday home, family home or investment, this one is well worth pausing to inspect.
The auction will take place Saturday September 15 at noon unless sold prior. For more information, phone Trevor McManus on 0448 810 074.
