A CLASSIC Wonthaggi heritage home is on the market.
Original family house of the Macdonells, 34 Dunn Street has been owned by one family since the early 40s.
In the days when Dunn street was filled with local miners, Thelma Rose Macdonell was an owner of local shoe store the Slipper Salon and husband Angus a manager at the Wonthaggi Co-operative.
Rose was elected as life governor of the Wonthaggi Hospital, as the hospital thanked her for her fundraising efforts.
Angus was a founding member of the Wonthaggi Rotary Club.
These exceptional locals and their family had a
welcome presence on Dunn Street.
The joining block, 32 Dunn Street was later purchased in the 70s and is now for sale as a separate title and an amazing opportunity.
The opportunity of owning both 32 and 34 builds a possible suburban oasis within the reach of everything Wonthaggi has to offer.
The house was originally built in Outtrim and moved in to town when the Macdonell family came to purchase it.
Although it does need some refurbishments, the building holds great charm and potential for Victorian era appeal.
Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a wide
entry foyer, which leads to the main bedroom, second bedroom and large sitting/living room.
A central bathroom is also in original condition.
The kitchen includes meals area and original fittings.
A large laundry space includes a separate storage room/office and separate toilet.
This home has been stripped to near bare and shows you a peek of what is ready to be uncovered with hard wood appearing on the floors, timber trimming to the walls, original light fittings and timber windows.
As a family home or development opportunity, Dunn Street is only a short stroll to the town centre and local schools.
