“Prestigious location, charming home and primed for capital gain”


At first glance, this charming Newtown property is a total standout – it will grab you and draw you in before you even step in the front door. But once it has your attention and you begin to unpack the unique living and/or investment opportunity in front of you, you will realise this is a rare prospect.

Located in the prestigious and beautifully treed Buckland Avenue, this home has so much to offer beyond its sought-after and quiet location. Set on a large landscaped allotment (766m2), the Californian Bungalow-style home boasts beautiful period features throughout. A walk through will reveal a large entrance foyer, formal lounge with bay window and a second living area with the added charm of an open fireplace.

The generously sized kitchen features modern appliances, while the dining/meals area opens onto a spacious entertainer’s deck with views across Geelong to GMHBA Stadium (did someone say free fireworks shows?). The home is built for family living with four bedrooms, and the option of a fifth or a study, two bathrooms, laundry, carport and side driveway with space for two cars. There’s also a single garage which has a workshop and extra bathroom.

But wait, there’s more! (and here’s the kicker)… Plans for a ground floor and second story extension already have planning approval ready for building approval. What a value add!

If you thought the views of Geelong were great now, wait until you can see Corio Bay and back across the Barrabool Hills. The costs of the renovation is likely to double the value of the property and you will reap the capital gain reward. Alternatively, you can buy as is and live happily and comfortably (with the option to build later) and still be assured significant growth based on the sales history of the property and the area.

This parcel of land, one of the largest blocks on Buckland Avenue, and leafy surrounds give you a feeling of endless space, privacy and ambience. Should you choose to revamp the backyard, there is ample room to get creative and even install a swimming pool (STCA)

All of this within walking distance to Geelong CBD, the city’s finest private schools and the fabulous Pakington Street café, restaurant and shopping district. The quality of life on offer in this quiet and family friendly region of Newtown cannot be understated so don't miss this opportunity to secure a wonderful home and investment opportunity in this tightly held location.
