After 29 years the owners are tree changing and moving on. In the elevated Wooloowin/Clayfield corner, sits this circa 1892 colonial of grand proportions and character, needing substantial renovation, and just waiting for your builder to transform her. You've heard the expression "good bones" before, but this is the house that clearly demonstrates the concept; "Whiteside circa 1892".The wide frontage, wrap around verandas and central hallway will draw you in to the charm of this home.
With four bedrooms and two bathrooms already, plus a walk in robe that could be converted to an ensuite, your renovation options abound.The generously proportioned lounge and dining rooms, with french doors opening to the verandahs, offer a great opportunity to create a very welcoming family environment.Gorgeous character features remain intact inside and out. Inside are wide polished floor boards of good quality, high ceilings and VJ walls, ornate room dividers and ceiling vents, and beautiful coloured glass surrounds to the front entrance door, and in the back door. Outside are the beautiful front and side verandahs with ornate balustrades and coach lights, and the house name plaque, "Whiteside" circa 1892.
