'Hilroy' - Elegant Character Charmer on Mary Street
Few properties capture the imagination of buyers like Grafton’s charming period homes, and few streets could exemplify this charm more than Mary Street. 148 Mary is a spectacular realisation of stately, period elegance with the picturesque locale of one of Grafton’s most highly sought streets to accompany it.
Set on a massive 860m2 block on the corner of Mary and Powell, this 3 bedroom weatherboard home has all the trappings discerning admirers of the era require; double width timber polished floors, stained glass, high ceilings, roomy bedrooms and ornate period style detailing and woodwork. The kitchen has benefited from a decidedly tasteful renovation, as has the bathroom, while each queen size bedroom enjoys built-in wardrobes.
A home of this quality and era promises to be a winner no matter its location, fortunately this one enjoys all the benefits of Mary Street. Always a buyer favourite, Mary Street is only blocks from the CBD, hospital, schools and amenities, while also retaining a charming suburban feel. The fact that it is predominantly flood free cements it as one of Grafton’s most desired streets.
And while there is little left to do in the home’s interior, the property’s substantial block size, dual street frontage and timber construction could easily facilitate adding value by way of extensions or sub division(SCTA). The potential long-term value of a property like this is enviable, with a beautiful home already in place and a massive corner block along with it, there is untapped potential here ready to be exploited by the new owner.
Encompassed on all sides by a quaint picket fence, and set among some of our city’s more spectacular homes, 148 Mary Street is a pretty picture indeed. A pleasure to behold and a joy to market, this is a rare opportunity to secure a high quality home, in a high quality location, with vast potential for long term capital gain and readily addable value.
