10 Silky Oak Drive, Nimbin
Cute, Convenience, Character
In one of the most desirable streets in Nimbin Village, this 'diamond-in-the-rough' offering is a real gem for the discerning buyer. On a large 786m2 almost level block, this pre-war home with enormous character is set toward the rear of the block, with a lovely rural outlook toward farms and a huge dam. There's plenty of space for extensions or for the option of a secondary dwelling - affording enough privacy for dual living with ease. The block has been home to lovely gardens in the past with a couple of larger specimen shrub/trees remaining. A gardener would delight in resurrecting the existing plants to once again become park-like lawns and gardens. And although there's currently no formal garage, there's plenty of room for off-street parking for multiple vehicles.
The 3 bedroom 1 bathroom high-set dwelling is, like so many homes of its era, built of (now virtually unprocurable) hardwood. Unlike so many homes of its era, however, this one is stacked full of Deco / Edwardian features. With a multi-hipped roofline and T-shaped floorplan, the wide verandahs are an external feature wrapping around the home on 3.5 sides. The interior features are of special note, and include super-wide hardwood timber floors, very high ceilings, divided wall paneling with a high picture-rail or ornament shelf and Deco timber brackets, glass fan-lights and ornamental hallway fretwork. There's plenty of period glass (textured obscure) in the hopper, bay and double hung windows as well as doors, and although this home would require a kitchen and bathroom renovation, both are currently usable - and there's some great old hardware features ready for an authentic restoration. A rare find indeed is this livable old character home with great bones and plenty of features waiting to be given new life.
The location is sensational...in a quiet cul-de-sac with district views to Blue Knob mountain, you can walk to the village for your groceries or enjoy the cafe-culture of Nimbin. The K-12 school is literally around the corner, and the local swimming hole for those hot summer days is a short walk away.
The best feature however is left until last...the price! Realistically priced for a savvy buyer or investor, this one's not to be missed.
