Let's not beat about the bush: these homes won't win any beauty pageants currently. But, what they will give you is a rare chance to bring in up to three incomes on a substantial site in a superbly -accessible spot. Are you up for bringing this 1920s' home roaring into the 2020s?
Sharing a whopping 2000m2 cross-lease site, 81 and 81a Luke Street offer a combined six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The rear two-bedroom property - 81a - is currently tenanted at $420/week and they are keen to stay on, offering you cash flow from the get-go.
And, the income potential doesn't end there. The front, four-bedroom home has a self-contained space - with a bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom and laundry. As it has its own entrance, it could be rented out easily too.
So, if you're a first home buyer or a keen DIY-er ready to add flair and finesse to a project, this is your chance to bring in an income as you start revamping.
High-stud ceilings add volume and light, while bedrooms are spacious and bright. Vintage features - such as the original hardwood floor and bay window - are just waiting to be highlighted by your sympathetic and edgy renovation.
These homes are SO ready for your creative mind to let loose on their restoration. So much so, that the vendor can even include some of the materials, including the kitchen units and fencing timber, in the sale.
And, what's not to love about the location either: motorway access is swift, Middlemore hospital is close and local amenities are within walking distance.
I know you can make these homes drop dead gorgeous and create a dazzling future for yourself. This is not a drill, the highly-motivated vendors will look at *every* offer. Make yours now.
