Classic character, inimitable charm, and a beautifully peaceful location are the hallmark of this original 1900s villa which is presented on an ‘as is, where is’ basis in the heart of Sumner. Surrounded by reserve land on two borders with gorgeous mature trees embracing the section, this property presents 895sqm of pure magic to create your Sumner dream.
Currently fitted out as a much-loved local community pre-school, the property offers an incredible opportunity to renovate, rebuild, or start anew and develop the section into multiple dwellings, or a spacious new home.
The lower floor of the villa is a large open plan space that is a blank canvas for a designer’s eye. With an attached sheltered conservatory, and an accessible upstairs eyrie ideally suited as a bedroom or second lounge, there is potential to expand the floor area and create a magical cottage that retains true turn-of-the-century charm and blends it seamlessly with modern convenience.
Keen gardeners and avid landscapers will appreciate the lovingly tended mature planting that has created a truly private feel to both the front and backyard areas, providing sympathetic landscaping that allows space for a new vision to integrate these beautiful elements.
Situated just off of Heberden Avenue, the home is in a quiet and residential part of Sumner that has a true local community feel. On the doorstep of the attractive St Leonard’s Park, and only a short walk from the in-zone Sumner School and the lively environs of the beach with all of the cafés, shops, and local amenities, this is a location ideally suited for family living.
