If you’re in the market for a quirky home with plenty of character, this former butcher’s shop might just ‘meat’ your expectations.
The property, known as Jessie’s Corner, at 86 Mills St formerly serviced Clarence Park and Millswood as a butcher’s shop, with an attached home at the back.
Ouwens Casslery Real Estate agent Alistair Loudon said the property had been converted by the previous owners, with the vendors updating it to the charming condition currently on offer.
“It does have a lot of period features, the home itself has stained glass and era specific features, but the shop front itself is now the lounge and dining room,” he said.
Advertised with a price guide of $680,000, which is $31,109 less than Clarence Park’s median house price of $711,109 according to CoreLogic, the property is set to go to auction on Saturday, March 30 at 12.30pm.
Mr Loudon said the home was popular at last weekend’s open inspection, with 20 groups attending and particularly loving the charm of the home.
“It’s ready to go and has had overwhelmingly positive feedback,” he said.
“It is a bit quirky and it has that originality, people love the period features – the high ceilings, the fireplaces and the outdoor entertaining space.
“It’s the warmth and the feel of the home.”
The property features three bedrooms, one with an attached study, an updated bathroom and a beautiful kitchen with a statement tiled splashback.
It also features a consult room, a wraparound veranda, and a private entertaining area with a ceiling fan – ideal for long lunches with friends and family.
Mr Loudon said the area was a major drawcard for many potential buyers, giving that convenient inner-city lifestyle.
“It’s a great step into an area like Clarence Park, a home at this level is fairly rare,” he said.
“It’s one of the most convenient suburbs to live in, you have two train lines, the tram a short walk away, in terms of public transport it’s second to none.
“You’ve got everything you need from dog parks to football ovals to tennis courts to playgrounds for young children.”
