Surely you remember the Addams family and their love for all things a little different and even frightening! Now, you can get involved in a bit of history and own a home, that is very close to the original! Located in Paddington and supported by a rich and colourful history, 284 Moore Park Road was built during the 1800's as a farmhouse before being converted into a gentleman's residence in 1873.
With a tightly held provenance, 'Verulam' (the ancient name for London) has been lovingly held by one family since 1924 and offers a unique and exciting opportunity to restore and return to its former glory.
With a mid Victorian origins, the building's facade is a fine example of the Federation Queen Anne style and its interiors feature a wealth of original features. The main attractions of the house include:
- Marble fireplaces
- Ornate 3.3m ceilings
- Three well defined levels, which include a cellar that during WWII became the family's air raid shelter
- A safe house for emergency supplies.
A prime opportunity awaits for a family or a developer to do some magical things and restore it to its original appeal. Whilst a little run down, the upside and potential means this Paddington residence is exceptionally unique. The 'Addams Family Home' has
- Five bedrooms;
- A grand reception rooms
- A large dine-in kitchen
- Family room with enclosed verandah
- Two baths
- Stables with mezzanine storage
