Character home awaits the next chapter
Built in 1940, Willanndale, named after the former owner’s two children, was constructed as a labour of love, a wedding gift from Jim Duncan to his bride Jean Soutar.
Jean later became a notable Warragul figure involved in numerous community groups and activities until her death in 2017 at the age of 100. The weatherboard home, full of history and character is poised for the next chapter. Although in need of renovation and refurbishment for a modern lifestyle, there is huge potential to create a wonderful family home for the fortunate buyer. High ceilings, decorative Art Deco ceiling panels, ornate cornices and fretwork, deep skirtings and two brick fireplaces are original features. Positioned on an approximate 2,700m2 corner allotment, number 41 Rulemount Road also offers multiple investment and subdivision options (STCA). The elevated site has an uninterrupted vista across the township to the Baw Baw Ranges whilst being only minutes from the freeway, town centre and train station.
Three bedrooms, central bathroom, spacious living and dining rooms, vintage kitchen and a fourth bedroom or an additional living area are included in the layout.
There is also a double carport, garage, an external laundry and a storeroom. At the rear is an in-ground concrete pool, installed around 1956, only the second pool to be built in Warragul. The pool and the surrounding gardens of majestic trees and rolling lawn were the centrepiece of many family gatherings during the summer months.
An enclosed front porch and double entry doors lead to a broad entrance hall flanked by the main bedroom, living room, adjoining dining room and the kitchen. Large windows in the bedroom and living room enjoy a sunny northerly aspect and superb outlook. A solid fuel heater is set into the fireplace in the living room, a split system air conditioner assists with climate control. Further along the entry hall are the bathroom with a pedestal basin, shower, bath and toilet, bedroom two, a fourth bedroom or second living area and the third bedroom, a result of a 1975 extension. Built-in robes are included in the main bedroom and there is a linen closet in the hall. Number 41 Rulemount Road, Warragul is an exciting opportunity to be part of history and create a home that is truly special and unique.
