Green walls, check, worn out retro carpet, check, gold and mustard-toned wallpaper, check … we won’t lie to you, this Frewville home needs work. But there’s also something special about it that is bound to attract the renovating crowd.
The circa 1925 three-bedroom bungalow, at 3 Avenue Rd, is full of quirky touches, from the ornate red-tiled fireplace to the bright blue old-fashioned wall oven and the amazing decorative ceiling with stars and swallows.

In the same family for over 60 years, Tanner Real Estate agent Simon Tanner said the original condition of the property would attract keen renovators looking to enter the eastern suburbs market.
“It’s a character bungalow with high ceilings, an original fireplace, cornices – it’s a great opportunity,” he said.
Mr Tanner said the property stood out in terms of its location, right in the heart of Adelaide’s blue-chip eastern suburbs.
He said the property could be redeveloped but believes the original condition to be a big drawer card – the property also features large rooms, a front veranda typical of its era and a good old-fashioned backyard with fruit trees, paving and lawn space.
“Most of the inquiries have been renovators. I think it will attract families because of school zoning, but it’s also a great opportunity for young professionals,” Mr Tanner said.
The home also features three well-sized bedrooms, an old fashioned laundry, an outside storage room, plus a double door garage in the backyard.
The property will go to auction on Saturday, February 2 at 3pm and has a price guide of $565,000.
Frewville has a median house price of $787,500 according to CoreLogic.
