A Victorian property listing complete with bright flower wallpaper and chequerboard floors has hit the market, offering buyers a slice of 1960’s inspired nostalgia.
Located at 77 Ninth Avenue, Rosebud the property is currently tenanted, having previously served as a personal retreat and short-term rental.
The current owners told realestate.com.au that they had a passion for the 1960s.
They worked hard to retain the original character of the home during renovations, even installing period-correct furniture.
“By trade I’m a hairdresser and I always wanted to do up a shop or salon, it was just a dream and it all fell into place,” owner Jane Farrell told realestate.com.au.
“Friends of my husband have said it’s like a museum.”
Ms Farrell and husband Mark purchased the property in 2013 for $320,000.
The current price guide calls for offers of between $670,000 and $735,000.
Features of the two-bedroom property include double-hung timber sash windows and a wood heater.
There’s a single lock up garage, split system air conditioning and built-in wardrobes to both bedrooms.
The lounge room features turquoise walls and the outdoor toilet features a wall decoupaged with cutouts from 1960s magazines.
The property is located about 500m from the shoreline and sits on a 496sq m block.
Currently leased on a month-to-month tenancy, it brings in $1820 per month.
