4 Elliott Street, Silkstone
1920’s Past… 2021’s Future, timeless example of a very popular 1920’s Silkstone property. So let the tradition and desire of owning an Ipswich character home live-on. If you love everything old and with character, but do not want the hard work then you need to take a look at wants on offer here. Major money has already been spent but the time has come for the owners to downsize, so this fantastic home is now available for the next family.
It’s hard to tell, but this lovely home is over 100 years old but still has all the charm and character you would expect, beautiful pine floors, extra high 10ft V.J. walls, timber features etc but with a few modern touches.
The first thing that you would notice it that it has been raised and sitting on a full brick base, being 2.4m (8ft) high it now offers full use to the lower ground level. The roof has also been recently replaced so the two biggest expenses associated with older homes have been completed.
The modern touches add to the convenience, but this home still retains that lovely, homely feel. The high VJ walls and original glass & timber features inside add to that feeling. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, lounge room and dining area separated by a classic timber archway. Family sized kitchen with timber cabinets, 900mm natural gas cooktop and electric oven. Very useable side sleepout that offers extra living space or could easily convert to a large walk-in robe and ensuite. (Seems to be a popular renovation option these days). The main bathroom is very neat & tidy, complete with spa bath/shower and works well for the current owners.
Internal timber spiral staircase allows easy and convenient access to the lower level where the options are massive. Let your imagination run wild…there is a huge amount of space & height to do so many things. Currently there is a full length carpeted open living space, with options to build extra bedrooms if required plus a separate hobby room. The 2nd downstairs bathroom offers convenience if the lower level was to be converted to other bedrooms. Two external doors also add to the convenience. Double car garage offers great security as well.
The added bonus of this property is the large flat 698 sqm corner block. Easy access from either side to build a big shed or park a big van. Fully fenced block right in the heart of Silkstone, surrounded by other quality period homes, this quiet street is often admired by the locals.
Easy walk to local shops, tavern, schools and very short drive to Booval (park&ride) train station. This is a hot property, with a very realistic price so don’t delay, as it won’t be there for long.
