Real estate agents love using superlatives. I have to give them a break on this as I've been in the same position and when you've written property description after property description it becomes rather hard to come up with inspiring copy. And then there's also the issue of not offending the vendor. So when I see a listing that says the property is "immaculately presented" or "designed for family living" I'm pretty sure the property is made of ugly and/or the vendor has horrible taste.
The listing for 10 William Street, South Yarra VIC is not short on superlatives, nor should it be as it's nothing short of spectacular AND it still needs work! Not a lot of work though and what work it needs depends on what the buyer wants to do with it. The listing states that "potential exists to develop rear area which includes exhibition space, cottage and stables STCA." And that the property was "used for many years as South Yarra Galleries presently comprising 6-roomed guest house, office, kitchen and two bathrooms." If I had this I'd incorporate the bathroom and dressing room on the top floor of Residence 1 into a large master suite. But what about Residence 2? What do you guys think? Don't be shy, drop me a comment below and tell me EVERYTHING. Do not leave anything out.
