Following a fire it was partially demolished in compliance with its Heritage Overlay, leaving a skeleton perfect for renovators or developers with vision to undertake the required rebuilding and restoration to return it to its former glory (STCA). Whilst delivering capital appreciation prospects consistent with the expectations attributable to the prestigious properties in the surrounding streetscape and underlining this unique opportunity for the new owners.
Presenting a rare opportunity to acquire a property in one of the area's earliest streets, dating back to the period when Hawthorn grew rapidly from a rural community into a bustling suburb with the completion of bridges over the Yarra in the 1880s. Subdivided in 1873 Lisson Grove was regarded as Hawthorn's most fashionable avenue by the late 1890s due to the lovely Victorian homes set in large gardens. Number 65 was one of four single storey villas built between 1884 and 1886 featuring a symmetrical façade with double bay windows, now regarded as having Historical and Architectural significance.
