Unmissable Opportunity: Nab your Own Piece of the Peninsula
Property ID 1885189Affectionately dubbed the Tardis', this renovated 1890's Colonial looks deceptively small from the street. However, step inside and it's immediately clear: you've just uncovered one of the Peninsula's best-kept secrets.
There's no denying it's a smart buy. As a 5 bedroom home sitting on a level 465m2 within the New Farm Neighbourhood Plan, it's poised for future capital growth. But that's not what makes this home special. It's the quality of life the lucky new owners will experience, each and every day. Allow us to paint a picture
It's Saturday, and you didn't get around to making weekend plans. Don't worry - you've got plenty of options. You're mere steps away from the James Street precinct and its carefully curated mix of boutiques, cafs, bars and cinema. You could meet some friends at the brand new Calile Hotel before finding a comfy spot in Ada Lana, the almost-complete bar and eatery-filled micro-precinct. Or, walk the short 450m to the glass lifts connecting the $110 million restoration of the heritage listed Howard Smith Wharves to neighbouring Bowen Street - where you could start the afternoon with a spritz at the Overwater Bar before heading into one of the world-class restaurants. Or, perhaps meet some friends at the craft brewery before you meander down the riverwalk. You're never far from home.
After a busy evening, a lazy Sunday morning is called for. Entertaining over brunch? What a grand idea. The sunroom is designed for hosting, with bi-fold doors leading down to the backyard and BBQ area. Although you're the host, you're never far from the action. The kitchen is designed to be seen - beautifully appointed and finished with lava stone and glass splashback, it also features a large servery window into the sunroom. It's the heart of a home, after all.
When Monday rolls around again, leave your car safe at home in the double lock-up garage - or even in the additional off-street parking spot that's got your name on it. The CBD is an easy walk, bike or bus ride away. Less traffic, less petrol - your commute just got a whole lot better.
And at the end of a long day, you'll love coming home to number 135 - with its high ceilings, timber floors, VJ walls, French doors, original windows and period elements throughout. It feels like you're stepping into your own slice of history.
In fact, you'll love living here so much you may never want to leave - and who says you have to? The downstairs level could easily be turned into a homestyle office. This space is versatile! Of course, you could continue renting it out through Airbnb. It is generating an impressive $30k per year as a self-contained 2 bedroom apartment, after all. And, given the much-anticipated opening of the Wharves, it's likely to become an even more coveted location.
