With a big block size and proximity to shops, the community hall, the local pub, and the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail, this property will suit a small family or a couple seeking their forever home. However, at over 100 years old it does need an owner with the ability to show it love and address some items, such as restumping of the front lounge and main bedroom. The agent can provide more information on request and help you figure out which element of the home you should sprinkle your own reno-love on first!

For lovers of vintage.
