The property will be sold through an expressions of interest campaign.

Properties in the street are tightly held. The last sale, in October of last year for a renovated three-bedroom residence was $1.075 million.

Mr Walker said location would be a key selling point and the residence offered a lot of potential in terms of possible renovation and restoration.

“The thing about Tighes Hill is it offers so much that people usually associate with somewhere like Merewether or The Junction in the fact that it’s got very good schools close by, parks and Throsby Creek,” he said.

“Tighes Hill is an eclectic suburb and has got this proliferation of little cafes which offer more than just coffee with art and creative endeavours.

“The home itself hasgot enormous scope …when you walk in, it’s got soul.”

One of the daughters of the home’s late owner said it had been a loved residence for over two decades.

Her mother held annualjacaranda tea parties and “verandah drinks” and could often be seen on the side verandah painting her local surroundings.

The views from the front verandah, particularly of an evening as the sun set over Throsby Creek and the Tighes Hill TAFE were “fantastic” and “the setting of the home is lovely” in an unobtrusive, quietstreet that has access to all inner city living has to offer.

The home has a formal lounge and a sunroom. The kitchen adjoins a separate formal dining room with access to a side porch through french doors. There is a second living space at the rear of the home.

It has inspections on February 3 and 4 between 11.15am and 12.15pm.
