7 Young Street, Drouin Auc­tion / $430,000 - $465,000

Brim­ming with char­ac­ter and pe­riod ap­peal, this charm­ing home in Drouin is a real gem. Add an in­ner town lo­ca­tion and this three bed­room res­i­dence be­comes an at­trac­tive op­tion for ur­ban liv­ing or the savvy in­vestor.

Dat­ing back to circa 1897, ‘Rus­sell House’ was orig­i­nally built for a lo­cal black­smith and coach­builder.

The home is packed with orig­i­nal Vic­to­rian fea­tures in­clud­ing lofty ceil­ings, floor­boards, deep skirt­ing boards, lovely moulded cor­nices, ceil­ing roses, sash win­dows and three tim­ber sur­round fire­places, one of which is still in use.

Painted tim­ber dado and tim­ber lined ceil­ings also add to the char­ac­ter. An up­dated bath­room and mod­ern kitchen to­gether with a fresh coat of paint in­side and out has given the prop­erty a new lease on life.

Lo­cated on a 501m2 cor­ner al­lot­ment, there is side ac­cess to a sin­gle car­port plus ad­di­tional space for ex­tra ve­hi­cles, a van or a trailer.

Across the front of the home a broad veran­dah al­lows cov­ered en­try and a shel­tered spot to view the es­tab­lished, easy care gar­den and passers-by.

A cen­tral hall­way is flanked by two of the bed­rooms and leads to the liv­ing room. Both bed­rooms and the liv­ing room in­clude a fire­place with dec­o­ra­tive tim­ber sur­rounds and man­tel, the liv­ing room fire­place is func­tional. Ad­join­ing the liv­ing room is bed­room three.

Po­si­tioned at the rear of the lay­out are the spa­cious kitchen/diner, bath­room with a shower, bath, van­ity, toi­let and the laun­dry with an ad­di­tional toi­let.

White cab­i­nets, in­clud­ing ex­ten­sive over­heads, soft green lam­i­nate bench tops, an elec­tric cook top and un­der bench oven are found in the ser­vice­able, spot­less kitchen.

Gas ducted heat­ing, a ceil­ing fan in the liv­ing room and pe­riod light fit­tings in the bed­rooms are fur­ther in­clu­sions.

A short walk will take you to the cen­tre of town, or if you pre­fer, the lo­cal bus stop is just across the street.

Num­ber 7 Young Street Drouin is to be auc­tioned at 11.00am Satur­day 21st July 2018.
