Ooh, those 80s updates did it no favours, but I always like the grand early 20thC ceilings.

It'll be demolished for higher desity development, like the ones next door. It's too small, too near the city and hosptial to survive.

Our current place had columns into the dining room which I'd assumed had been included by the previous Mediterranean owners. It was only when I was ripping them out that I realised they were original 1915, albeit very ugly.

Too much for me but good bones. 😳

Odd to have so many living rooms and only two bedrooms 🤔. And that large living room has too many doors opening onto it, it makes most of the room a walkway. My last house had that - the lounge room was largeish but because there were three entrances to the room there were very few spaces to put the furniture without it being in a walkway.

Of their time. Very common in the city when I was growing up, although a historical hangover even then.

Rather cute, but the wallpaper and carpet is terrible.

Clearly a deceased estate. I'm sure my parents probably knew the owners, or at least a person who knew the owners (Wollongong is like that)

The ceilings in the living and dining rooms are quite nice.  The house as a whole has potential with a lot of updating.

If you're on Facebook I can recommend the "Retro Houses  for Sale (and Renovation) Australia" group. It's where I found this and it's pretty active with lots of posts 🙂

I love the stereos built into the bed head.  I think my Uncle had one in the late 70s, early 80s.

I hate that it will almost certainly be knocked down.  I love seeing older houses around.

Seeing the time capsule I was fully expecting to see plastic cover on the dining room table and plastic hall runners on the carpet.

I was liking it right up until I realised there was no indoor toilet and then I noped out. I have few standards, but I flatly refuse to leave the house to use the loo.
