Retro ripper

I LOVE 1950s houses.

They were built to last and have a timeless look and appeal.

This circa late 1950s Inglewood home is in immaculate condition and has loads of kitsch period features including an arresting bathroom with black wall tiles and a pink sink and bathtub.

There’s also a quaint kitchen with an original Everhot wood stove, and a second gas oven.

The whole house is a bit of a pleasing time warp and when you step into the living area you can’t take your eyes off the original stacked stone feature fireplace.

All this will be a welcome dilemma for the new owner, who can cherrypick what heritage features they want to keep and what they want to modernise.

The options are endless for this three bedroom, one bathroom house, but it’s super tidy and neat so you can move in now and plan your upgrades later.

There’s a study which could be turned into a fourth bedroom, a large laundry with a seperate toilet that could become a second bathroom, and a large single garage.

All three bedrooms are queen-sized and the family bathroom has a seperate bath and shower. 

When I was house hunting a few years ago, every one I viewed had been subdivided within an inch of its life and had a negligible backyard.

Thankfully this property has a large, largely untouched rear garden with plenty of room for a small pool, ancillary dwelling or shed.

There’s a couple of patches of lawn, with bore reticulation, but it really is a blank canvas to do what you want. 

Or if you like things simple, just plonk a table and an umbrella out there.

Situated on a 562sqm block on Crawford Road this property is close to popular primary schools, parks and shops, and a short bus ride from the city.

Given the size of the block and its Inglewood location, this is a good entry point into the suburb for astute buyers who like some retro flair.
