This retro Geelong gem has been given a funky facelift with a huge walk-in robe and stylish outdoor entertainment area.
Mid-century design meets all the comforts of living in 2022 at this renovated Geelong pad.
The vendor of the three-bedroom house in Belmont has updated the 620sq m property, making it the perfect turnkey opportunity for another young buyer.
Barry Plant Highton director Kieron Hunter said the seller had notably installed a “really big walk-in wardrobe” off the main bedroom, with ample space to showcase his vintage clothes collection.
“You can never have a big enough wardrobe,” Mr Hunter said.
The 10 Rigo St abode has hit the market with a $750,000-$800,000 price guide.
He estimated the “good-looking house” dated back to the 1950s, and noted it had retained its retro charm.
“They just did it right back then,” the agent said.
“When they were built, they had lots of character and soul – and lots of natural light.
“ (Mid-century homes) are very rare, very in demand and in fashion.”
Floor-to-ceiling timber panelling and stone feature walls are paired with a modern kitchen and bathroom.
The living space opens to a U-shaped courtyard comprising a timber deck with a service window to the kitchen, and fairy lights, primed for entertaining on warm summer evenings.
There is also a fire pit amid the manicured lawn at the rear of the property.
Mr Hunter said the location near the High St shopping strip and Belmont High were additional drawcards.
