Do you fancy yourself a contender for the 2020 series of the hit TV show, The Block? Well we have a property project for you!!
Brisbane’s architecture has changed dramatically in the past 100 years. From early timber and tin cottages, to the war service homes of the 1950s, to the orange brick of the 1970s and the modern masterpieces of today – the Queensland capital has carved out a distinct style of home. The first three decades of the 20th century saw the development of the iconic Queenslander complete with intricate detailing and a plethora of verandah styles.
This year The Block are taking a step back in time to pay homage to our humble beginnings. The stage is set on a 2761-square metre parcel of land in Melbourne’s affluent suburb of Brighton which was purchased by producers of The Block as the location for The Block 2020.
The land was subdivided into five lots and five run-down houses – each from a different era; the 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s – have been relocated to the site and now, it’s up to The Block 2020 contestants to restore them to their former glory while updating the home for modern day living.
24 Garfield Street is typical pre-war home (built before 1947) with a traditional building character home overlay, these homes are generally called character homes (and for good reason). With ornate pressed metal ceilings, vintage porcelain chandeliers, decorative ceiling roses, period lighting, VJ walls and ornate gables, all one of a kind. These charming historic character pieces are just waiting for someone to see the potential in this amazing gem. If you are looking for a project to create your very own “Block in Brisbane”, it doesn’t come much closer than this!
This charming Queenslander on a lovely, level block in thriving Nundah is only 400m to Kalinga Park.
It is filled with potential and is waiting for the lucky owners to bring it back to its former glory. The perfect home for a family looking to add value by renovating and extending or raising and building in under. Re-open the enclosed L-shaped veranda to truly bring this gem back to life. The home currently offers a huge living room with stunning original features, 2 bedrooms plus a sleep-out (potential third bedroom), a large eat in kitchen, an additional multi-purpose or informal lounge, neat and tidy bathroom and a separate toilet, plus a back deck.
The potential is fantastic – Renovate the Character filled Queenslander & potentially build 1-2 exquisite townhouses at the rear of the block (STCA). Alternatively build a granny flat or second smaller dwelling at the back of the block, perfect for dual or multi-generational living, or additional rental income (STCA).
With a 15m frontage and Medium Density Residential zoning (MDR), the prime location of this property is second to none.
Additionally, now is a great time to embark on a project of this nature, as you can take advantage of the Government Building Boost Grant, for renovations over $150,000, the Government will contribute $25,000
Owner Occupiers, Investors & Developers alike – this is an opportunity not to be missed!
