At a time when most homes on the market boast of a contemporary look, this blast from the past is a refreshing change. Tightly held by one family for more than 60 years, this original solid brick home will take you back decades.

Be it the décor or the furnishings or the exposed brick walls, this three-bedroom home on 10 Barker Ave in South Plympton has been charmingly preserved by its owners.

Built in 1962, and on the market for the first time, the home has been very well-maintained by the owner, something that is often not in the case with older homes.

It would certainly appeal to those looking for some retro charm, or buyers looking to renovate, extend or possibly redevelop, subject to council consents.

The home’s living and dining areas are spacious and the main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.

According to Matt Smith of Klemich Real Estate who has presented the property to market, the home has a good location and offers ample potential.

“You walk through the home and it instantly takes you back in time. The owner is 101 years old and has done an exceptional job in maintaining the property. It is a very neat home indeed,” Mr Smith said.
