The Radical Roundup: What’s Good (and Renovation Worthy) in the Low $2-mils
Coburg: 25 The Grove
Rad because: Hawthorn brick and boom-time architecture? Check and check. These bones be good.
The deets: John Sheldrick of Hocking Stuart. $1.8m+*
*Needs some extra love
Malvern East: 66 Central Park Road
Rad because: One of the best renovations of a Federation we’ve seen. Pair that with a prime Gascoigne Estate location in Malvern East (the better of the Malverns) and SCORE!
The deets: Michael Armstrong of Kay & Burton South Yarra has the listing. $3.5m+
**This is our post-renovation option :)
Toorak: 4 Matthews Court
Rad because: Unfortunately for Toorak, most of the 1960s-era mid-century modern “court” residences (homes situated on subdivided cul-de-sacs replacing the multi-acre 19th century estates) have been replaced by frightening McMansions. Enter 4 Matthews Court. 1960s bones-at-their-best. In need of a slight refresh.
The deets: of Marshall White. $2.2m+
NEW SOUTH WALES
Vaculuse: 32a Fitzwilliam Street
Rad because: WTF? A church-turned-scout-hall on primo Fitzwilliam Street? Bizarre, but it’s true. Not sure what this can become; but calling all dreamers!
The deets: Michael Pallier of Raine&Horne. $2.2m+
Birchgrove: 61 Louisa Road
Rad because: Louisa Road is Birchgrove’s Wolseley Road. However, most of the best estates are situated on the non-Harbour Bridge view (west) side. Therefore, this park-front pocket on the eastern side of the road is a rare one, with ample room for growth
The deets: Reg Window (real name?) of Richardson & Wrench Balmain. $2m+
Glebe: 13 Avenue Road
Rad because: This home cries at night. Crying for a great renovator. It’s a Late Victorian (with a bit of Federation flair!) in Glebe’s prestigious Toxeth Estate. Someone jump on it, fast!
The deets: Michael Glynn of McGrath. $2.25m+
