The property

A once in a lifetime opportunity is ready to be snapped up with this mid-century 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Blackburn home! What makes this property so unique is the location and breathtaking surrounds, with the 1020 sqm (approx.) block sitting in a tranquil no-through road right next to the beauty of Furness Park. This is a genuine chance to capture a country-style allotment right in the lively heart of Blackburn.
‘Potential’ is the operative word with 8 Furness Street. The expansive north-facing allotment is the perfect candidate to be converted into a brand new family home (STCA) that takes advantage of the beautiful greenery all around. Conversely, you can renovate the home or extend up to make your living experience even more special.
Highlights of the current liveable dwelling include a spacious family room with open fireplace, dining area, kitchen with updated touches including a stainless steel Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, master bedroom with updated ensuite, other large bedrooms, central bathroom, laundry, reverse cycle heating and cooling, covered alfresco meals and a leafy garden at the rear, shed, and ample off-street parking options.
In this coveted Box Hill High School zone, this picturesque Blackburn pocket has you so close to Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, Blackburn Station Village including Blackburn train station, Morton Park, Laburnum Primary School, Blackburn South Shopping Centre, Forest Hill Chase, and local buses.
