Lovely. Exactly the kind of house I would want to buy.

Nice house.

Does it need renovating? Your standards must be way higher than mine.

The lounge is from IKEA.

I love it!!!!

I love it... love it.

It doesn't even need work (I would happily live in it as is, and maybe do the bathroom in a year or two).

But the house is gorgeous.

This just depresses me that you can buy such a beautiful house for that price.  I'm in Perth and I can't even get a decent house in the dodgey suburbs for that price sad.gif

Beautiful.

Here in Sydney you can buy a one bedroom unit for $309K.

Depressing.

Our house for $335k is not nearly as nice!

I'd be getting a Very Good B&P inspection!

Where are the floor plans?
I noticed when looking at houses in Brissy a while back there weren't many with floorplans either.  They are vital when looking at houses I reckon.
Every single place advertised for sale, no matter how sh*tty or tiny in Melbourne will have floorplans in the ad.
But I agree with you, she's a beauty!

That's what I thought too.

Gorgeous house OP. Congratulations original.gif

There's no floor plans, but we've been inside. Like all houses of that era, it's a bit 'quirky' compared to modern day homes, but still perfectly livable for a family.

Don't get too depressed about the price, it's not the average price for this area. Although the agent has explained to us that 'family reasons' are behind the sale, and there's no obvious dramas with building and pest that we can see, but we're still anxious to see what the formal reports come back with.

I can see why you love it. I adore period homes.

What is the area like?

I know that house, my friend tried to rent it last year I think. There was a fair bit of competition for it. Its a great location, so close to the city.  I dont think the Yasi flood made it up that far either.

Looks beautiful and you could renovate anyway you like.

It's a lovely house. It depresses me that it's worth substantially less than the tiny two bedroom flat I'm sitting in...

Am curious, do you know why your friend didn't end up renting it?

Love the bathroom! Don't you dare get rid of it OP!

#24 ~iMum~

Posted 20 December 2012 - 09:53 PM

I love the basin, but the rest of that bathroom has a date with a sledgehammer.

Yes actually, on second look that's the only good bit. Congrats. Great place!
