This is simply one of the best renovation projects to be offered for sale in Ipswich for years. The bones are fantastic – the rest is up to you. The central hallway boasts a pressed metal ceiling and is flanked by two bedrooms on each side at the front of the home. A large dining/lounge area at the back of the home is graced with a very stylish timber, cast iron and tile fireplace and naturally finished VJ walls. While the kitchen and bathroom need upgrading, they are perfectly serviceable so you can renovate at your own pace. There is plenty of space for an en-suite and walk-in robe too off the master bedroom.
A home couldn’t possibly be more centrally located than this absolute stunner in much sought after Woodend. If you don’t own a car, and like to eat out, shop and go to the movies, you will be right on the doorstep of the Ipswich CBD with loads of cafes, restaurants and shops to choose from. A ten minute walk tops will get you to the train station and the River-Link Shopping Centre.
If you would like your children to attend one of Ipswich’s most prestigious private schools – St. Eddies, St. Mary’s and Ipswich Grammar are only a few minutes walk away.
This very large four bedroom home was built c. 1880 with all of the features that come with that era – archways, tongue and groove walls and ten and a half foot high ceilings. Six inch pine flooring is hiding under the carpets and it looks like it has never been sanded and polished since it was laid so they will come up a treat. The internal doors, architraves and skirting boards are all of unpainted cedar. This classic home even has a recently refurbished corrugated iron roof, a broomstick-balustrade front verandah and a white picket fence.
Cleverly, the build was kept off-centre on the block which allows side access to the back garden, which needs attention but will reward your efforts as a lot of effort has obviously been put into the grounds in the past.
