Situated in one of Bowral’s most sought-after streets and with endless original features, there’s no denying this property’s enormous potential.

152 Merrigang Street in Bowral is a renovator’s dream and the perfect little place to call home for someone ready to get a little work done.

This fantastic two-storey house has three bedrooms and one bathroom on a 776 sqm block set back from the road and surrounded by established hedging.

The 135 sqm home comes with unique features such as exposed beams, a country cottage façade, manicured front garden with stunning dry stone wall and pillars (wired for potential installation of an electric gate) and a north-facing rear deck. And that’s before you get to its oodles of charm.

Ray White Bowral real estate agent Gene Fairbanks said the house is ripe for renovation.

“The home has a great style and it could be finished off and worked into a great house by someone with a dream and the motivation.

“It’s in a great spot. Merrigang Street is really highly regarded among locals,” he said.

Entering the house through the front porch, you’re greeted by the exposed beam ceiling, stairs leading to the second floor and the generously spaced main living room, which opens out to the back porch.

Moving on, you’ll find the combined kitchen and dining area flooded with light, then the study and laundry room.

Upstairs, you’ll find three comfortably sized bedrooms and bathroom and a small sitting room that connects each of the upstairs rooms.

The property features a small outdoor living area on the patio alongside a generously sized backyard with a chook run and pen.

Gene said the people who have come to see that house have been genuinely excited – it has boundless potential.

“There’s been a lot of interest in the property. People are really excited about the opportunities that this home has to offer and the potential to extend.”

This property is placed in a fantastic spot, only a short 5-minute walk to Cherry Tree Walk and a 2-minute drive to Bowral town centre and a raft of parks, shops and cafes.

The house is open for inspection this Saturday (21 May) between 12 noon and 12:30 pm.
