Charming Bicton Character Cottage with Development Opportunity
Nestled in amongst lush green gardens and big old trees, this 1920 character cottage with a pool and a, more recently added, granny flat/bed sit lies on a sprawling 906sqm block of prime real estate in a sought after pocket of Bicton. Offering a charming, character-rich residence, this property boasts boundless opportunity. The original circa 1920 portion of the home with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, study, kitchen and living oozes a homely old world charm. Whilst the additional bedsit, complete with en-suite and separate laundry could be used as a second living or even a second dwelling, with provisions in place for a potential second kitchen.
The home also features a large verandah at the front to watch the world go by or engage with the community feel of this tree lined street. From the verandah at the back, which overlooks the substantial underground pool, you can entertain or just sit and enjoy the serenity of the fully reticulated cottage gardens.
With Bicton Primary School just metres away and so close to shops, cafes, transport and the river, you will enjoy a lifestyle that most people dream about.
In addition, the property also represents a fantastic opportunity to redevelop with plans/site survey already approved by WAPC to subdivide into two lots – this home has amazing potential! You'll have the chance to enjoy as is, develop or add your own personal stamp when the time is right. The choice is yours!
What a magnificent opportunity to secure a family home in one of Bicton's most popular streets. Be sure not to miss out – it could be another 50 years before this chance presents itself again!
