About this property

Take a trip down memory lane. RZ2 zoned.

Buyer's guide price: from $865,000

The golden age of the 1970's has come & gone, but remnants remain in the least likely of places. From the warming natural timber feature wall & original cornices in the living room to the added space & convenience of an attached granny flat, 115 Kitchener is a home steeped in the charm & memory of a simpler time.

21st century buyers often look for opulence & architecture, forgetting that nothing can replace a flexible floorplan which can adapt to almost any resident. Even better, add a prime location in a stunning south-side suburb & alfresco entertaining options aplenty. Gather generations of family onto the raised terraces & follow the sun from front to rear. Watch as the children wander to school or day care just one street away. Follow others footsteps to the local shops, grab the paper & a coffee, & live life how it was meant to be lived - slow & serenely.

Some look to the future, others to the past, but in this home you can view both. A little love & a tender touch is all this house is waiting for. Get lost in the world of imagination. With RZ2 zoning, allowing future redevelopment, & vacant possession if you want to move in quick, this remarkable relic is ready for the taking.
