289 Pakington Street Newtown

Elevated, Elegant, and Charming, this circa 1854 cottage offers multiple options to maximise the 2 titles in one of Geelong's finest neighbourhoods. Set near the front of the block, the home offers the enviable proposition of rear lane access and a cleared back yard. The existing building offers a style that will have few competitors, and the open mind minded will work with, and enhance the property as it sits today. The allotment is approximately 535sqm with the 2 titles which will offer the ability to re-align boundaries and create a duplex STCA; potential for a small-scale subdivision taking advantage of the rear lane also dependant on council approvals; or simply grand scope to extend the property with a contemporary extension on the rear that will take full advantage of the northern sun. The property has town planning permits and architectural drawings which will be provided to the successful buyer. Significant infrastructure has been completed over the past year in relation to wiring, stumping & roofing allowing the new purchaser ease of transition in to whatever project they undertake. The exposed brickwork and open fire places capture the essence of the era and create the perfect platform to work from. The home is ideally located within minutes to the vibrant social end of Pakington Street, moments to the South Geelong train station, Chilwell primary school and the Geelong CBD.
