It’s eccentric, colourful and unlike anything else on South Australian property market. So it’s no surprise this Mount Gambier renovator has buyers brimming with excitement.
Offered to the market for the first time in 60 years, 2 Clezy Cres, is for sale via an expression of interest campaign, with an expected sales price range of $275,000 to $290,000.
Painted in bright, rainbow colours throughout, selling agent Al Lamond of Key 2 Sale Real Estate, said the home had so far attracted the attention of a number of interstate renovators and local tradespeople.
“I think a tradesman will most likely buy it to renovate, but also because it has a big workshop,” he said.
“But I’ve also had interest from young people in Queensland. It’s the quirkiness and uniqueness that appeals to them.
“Many of them get inspired by reno shows like The Block, so they go looking for these type of properties to renovate and then put back on the market.”
Mr Lamond said the 878sqm property was a well-known landmark in the regional town.
Set across two levels, the timber framed home comprises five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple living areas.
Extras include a large gas heater, split and ducted airconditioning, an enclosed games and alfresco areas, large shedding, and a huge workshop area with plenty of separate storage.
“The gentleman who owned this property has been living here on his own for a quite few years, but built it on his own 60 years ago,” Mr Lamond said.
“He was a builder and once had a large family in there.
“It’s a property that we really don’t see that often and in terms of the colours, I guess he painted the house the way he liked it and to reflect his personality.”
