In need of repair...

Wesley Street, Lutwyche.

Spotted this while wandering down the road to a medieval trade fair at the hall on the same street.

See where this picture was taken.

    It has character...and would need lots of work.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    Indeed it does, and hopefully someone will put that work into it as it'd be a shame for it to end up demolished as unsafe or unrepairable.
  • Margot- said: needs lots of TLC (tender, love and care). :o)

    It does indeed Margot.

    it'd do me fine...

    could have a flickr party there ^^
  • David de Groot said:
    Quite so Brian. Providing the renovators had bucketloads of cash ;)

    It'd definitely be good to see inside, Greg.

    I wonder how an estate agent would describe this place?
  • benefit of hindsight said:
    Is this typical of houses there - not the state of disrepair (which is a bit sad), but rather building with wood and raised off the ground like that?
    So much different to here.
  • David de Groot said:
    Fairly typical of that era at least David. Although Queensland definitely goes in for raised houses more than the southern states, mostly due to the fact it's a lot warmer up here for most of the year (in general terms).
  • David de Groot said:
    Stephen, I'm afraid I've been somewhat out of touch with real-estate write-ups, but I dare say something involving "handyman's dream" comes to mind.

    trying to think how an estate agent would describe it here in the UK, "ripe for refurbishment " or something similar, if it was in the right spot it probably wouldnt put us off, we have taken on some pretty awful places !!
  • David de Groot said:
    Well it was in a section of Lutwyche that I personally wouldn't call "the right spot", but then I'm not a fan of suburbia either...
  • looby88 said:
    moi neither, but theres not that much bush arouind here ...... he he, our next house will be more rural, though this one isnt bad ! you live in a wonderful place : )
  • David de Groot said:
    Aye, indeed I do :)

    I used to live across the road from this house. I think the lady's name was Jean or Joan perhaps? She told me she used to have real estate agents bugging her all the time (this was back in the mid 90's) and she'd never give them the time of day. She told me she was born in the house and one day gave me a copy of a photo of her as a young girl, standing with relatives out the front of my house with a wedding party. Lovely gesture. I'm sure the house as been restored now.
