Bring your foresight and imagination to a viewing of this Flora Hill home. Packed with potential, it offers the chance to roll up your sleeves, get creative and engineer a bright future, whether you're looking for a fantastic new lifestyle or investment. Margaret Crescent is a beautiful little slice of Bendigo, between Carpenter and Sommerville Streets, and less than 2km from the Bendigo Marketplace. Number 12 has plenty of street appeal, thanks to its classic clinker bricks and leafy garden.
Past the facade, there is much work to be done in polishing the original features and finishing off the vendors' vision. (Any young couples looking to flip a home? Here it is!) There are three bedrooms; the main retains its hardwood floor, as does the spacious front loungeroom. Decorative cornice and original timber-framed windows are likewise all worth keeping.
The central bathroom has been upgraded with floor-to-ceiling tiles, a freestanding bath and frameless shower. The all-timber kitchen also needs some elbow grease, but with a pantry cupboard, dishwasher, pot drawers and stainless-steel stove, it has all the ingredients to get you cooking. The rear dining or living room is incomplete, but with its views to the garden through banks of French doors, it's a great space to retain and finish.
Outside is a magnificent elm tree which may just seal the deal on your decision. Its sprawling branches create a cool and inviting space to retreat to at the end of a day's renovating. Backyard storage, solar panels and ducted cooling are three features already established for you. Otherwise, the future of this home is yours to choose. Show it your love and attention and it will no doubt repay you financially, emotionally and creatively.
