The property has a lot of potential.

“It is a decent sized block and they have young kids so they will be able to take advantage of the sporting ground across the road,” Mr Carroll said.

“It is not your average house and the buyer is looking through the house with an architect to see what they can do with it.”

The house is set to be transformed.

The location opposite a sporting ground was a big drawcard.

The house is on 688sq m of land and has four bedrooms, two share an ensuite and all have built-in wardrobes.

An open-plan loungeroom and meals area has a bar along with the stone features walls, timber lining and patterned carpet.

There is also a bungalow and workshop at the rear of the property.

The median house price in Herne Hill has increased 16.9 per cent in the past year to $545,000, according to CoreLogic.
