While the downstairs of this retro Darlington property has been completely restored, there’s still a slice of groovy goodness hiding upstairs.
The circa 1965 home, at 10 Cameron Ave, features an upstairs master suite that’s ready for new owners to put their flare on it.
But don’t worry, the lower level has been completely updated into a seamless blend of modern finishes and retro features – ready to simply move in and enjoy.
Ouwens Casserly Real Estate agent Alistair Loudon said the home had been a long-term project for the vendors – but there was still scope for homebuyers to put their flare on untouched spaces.
“There’s one part that needs a little TLC,” Mr Loudon said.
“The current owners have been there for over a decade and they’ve done some work to the home, the main living spaces have all been updated over the past eight to nine years.”
Proving popular at last weekend’s open inspection, Mr Loudon said the owner-built home attracted a range of potential buyers and some serious offers.
“We had 36 groups through for the first open,” he said.
“It definitely attracted a lot of young families – it’s got a decent land size, it’s in a quiet cul-de-sac and the fact it has been partially updated means the vendors have started the process for you.”
Mr Loudon said the generous 751sqm block was also a major drawcard for potential buyers.
“It’s set opposite the creek and almost feels like you’re in the Hills,” he said.
“For it’s era, it’s quite typical for the area – but the size of the home is probably the thing that’s not as typical, as it’s quite large.”
The main lounge has a beautiful exposed stone wall, with timber cladding above the large picture windows. French doors open out to a beautiful balcony, ideal for entertaining friends and family.
The home also features a modern kitchen, three well sized bedrooms (one partially updated), an original quirky blue bathroom and a feature jelly-bean shaped pool that just begs for lazy cocktails on a hot day.
The property has a price guide of $440,000 to $470,000. Offers close on Tuesday, April 2 at 12pm.
