With TV shows like Channel 9’s “The Block” dominating our screens, the act of finding an old house full of character and revitalising it into a modern home has never been more popular.

But with limited houses of character available on the market, it is often difficult to find that ideal property to make your mark on.

For those looking to take on such a challenge in Kingscote however, 12 Franklin Street has all the potential you could want.

Perfect for the budding home renovator or tradie, this offering involves finalising an estate, giving potential buyers the opportunity to invest at the lower end of the range and develop an asset.

Timber floors throughout the inside and classic window styling gives the cottage a really good feel.

The cottage is neat and compact with a timber veranda on two sides.

“Timber floors throughout the inside and classic window styling gives the cottage a really good feel,” explained says Elders Agent Colin Hopkins.

“Both bathroom and kitchen are works in progress. Lot 201 and 202 will initially be offered together, and if not sold then they will be offered separately”.

This property is situated on an ideal location, on a large plot on the corner of Franklin and Wheaton. 

The house is in a quiet residential area, perfect for the kids or for retirees, and only a few minutes walk from the township.
