This is what the heart of heritage Bendigo is all about; gracious period homes, views of the cathedral and golden opportunities. 140 Queen Street epitomises it all. This is one of those properties that's known and admired for its picture-perfect street appeal and prominent location.
Will you make it your business, or a private home? The property has been both over the decades. As it stands it offers potential to develop into either. Will you retain the backyard or subdivide and truly capitalise? Subject to council approval.
The facade is something special, with its iron-lace veranda, finials, bay window, picket fence and garden. There is all-abilities access to the front door, which opens to a classic floorplan. A central hallway separates three bedrooms and a front lounge, which boasts that beautiful bay window. Original stained glass in the front bedroom is gorgeous, as are the high ceilings and wide architraves throughout.
The home opens at the back to a large kitchen/dining/living space, with raked ceiling. The fully-functional kitchen will get you through for now, and the wood heater will be welcome come winter. Double glass doors lead to an elevated, undercover deck, where you'll never tire of seeing the Sacred Heart Spire reaching up towards the heavens.
This property has such a superb sense of place, as one of inner-city Bendigo's precious period gems, and it's ready and waiting for its next incarnation.
