180 Autumn Street Geelong West
Take up a rare opportunity to restore one of Geelong West’s earliest homesteads to its former glory, with plans available on request.
Historic Homewood, circa 1864, on a wide 841sqm allotment (approx.) with north-facing rear yard, is ready for renovation, extension (STCA) and a new era.
The rich past of the double-fronted brick home, originally built for coppersmith Charles Homewood, is evident throughout, with heritage features including fireplaces, an ornate hall arch, timber floors, slate roof, high ceilings and spacious rooms.
With four generous bedrooms, three bathrooms, an expansive central lounge/dining area, long adjoining kitchen, plus potential formal lounge, study or extra bedroom, all the basics are there for a grand lifestyle.
Restoration work has begun, with many of the rooms stripped back for renovation, plus installation of a new bathroom, but the home is waiting for your creative touch.
A large rear studio or storage area attached to the main house could also be opened up for extra living space or used as a private work-from-home area.
Another brick building at the rear offers options as a teen retreat, guest getaway or for a home business.
Other highlights include a wide front verandah from which to relax with a coffee and enjoy the shady front garden, fruit trees and off-street parking accessed via a rear lane.
The home is in a prime position for modern living, located between the shopping and dining precincts of Pakington St and Shannon Ave, with top-quality schools within easy reach.
It’s walking distance to Sparrow and West parks and supermarkets, and an easy drive to Geelong train station, The Gordon TAFE, the CBD, waterfront and the Ring Road.
