If you love a home that tells a story, some history, that’s well built and full of character, charm and, frankly, architecturally interesting, then take a look at this home, right in the centre of Ballina. It has all of that in bucket loads.

This beautiful example of 1940’s Californian Bungalow design – stunning ornate plaster ceilings, the deep verandah with setback entry, central hallway, timber lined walls – it’s actually one of the best examples of this style I’ve seen in the region, and in impeccable condition. All you have to do is add your own colour palate and you’re done.

And while we love the formal layout of the original home, modern life is catered for too with a fully renovated main bathroom, and fabulous entertaining and living space at the rear of the home. It includes a wall of north facing windows overlooking the back garden, modern kitchen with oodles of bench space and plantation shutters to bring the style.

The green space is huge with approx. 740 square metres and there’s dual street frontage with Websters Lane behind. That means there could be loads of scope for development here (subject to council approval of course). Or it could be a great way to bring in a caravan, boat or other vehicles to the security of your yard.

The location is one that gets people excited. The centre of Ballina island, with the beautiful Richmond River just 4 blocks, the brand new ultra-modern Ballina Coast High School is only 3 blocks and in a 5 minute drive you’re on some of the best beaches in the world – Shelley, Lighthouse, Angels, Sharpes beaches are all close by. Walk down to Belle Central for great coffee or enjoy the Richmond River ambience at twilight or sunrise.
