My favourite home to hit the market this year, this attractive Victorian has been exceptionally renovated, with the layout of the floor plan working well for a family with primary school aged children and up. Positioned in arguably one of the best locations in Brighton, this home will attract many buyers, some of whom will fall in love with the home and its proximity to Church Street, the beach and the many exceptional schools within the area. The rear yard is a highlight with the soccer pitch and large, 25 metre lap pool and spa.
Some buyers may be challenged by the sunken kitchen which minimises the view over the living space and out into the rear yard. In addition, the off street car accommodation is lacking for a home in this price point with the single garage being the only undercover parking available.
Upon touring the home, the master bedroom stands out as not being 'grand' enough to match the rest of the home. It is certainly functional but is lacking something special.
The owners have clearly invested significant capital in the renovation and homes within this area typically sell for around $4,500 per square metre for an unrenovated property through to $7,500 per square metre for a renovated home. There are some outliers up to to around $8,000 per square metre, such as this home and that price may not be achievable however, there may be some buyers that will fall in love with the home.
Things we love
