Restored, renovated and reimagined with History where you want it, modern convenience where you need it.
Perfectly positioned on the edge of the Bangalow parklands, only a short stroll to the main street of town is ‘Lowanna’. This beautiful Federation-style bungalow house (circa 1915) was built by Arthur Beckinsale, a noted Bangalow builder of the era, as his own family home. ‘Lowanna’ was constructed before electricity and or pipe water came to Bangalow.
Originally, the home had a tennis court in the large North facing front yard and could easily again if you wished, why not add a rotunda for post-match Pimm’s and lemonade? However the coveted RU2 zoning of the block permits a dual occupancy, a secondary dwelling or wide array of creative business opportunities to be built on the vacant 650m2 space. Capitalize on the location in the heart of Bangalow village to create a business or an accommodation all of your own.
‘Lowanna’ sits on the rear of the block and has undergone a loving restoration to create a gorgeous modern family home. 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 internal toilets, family living area with all the modern conveniences sensitively added and disguised with subtle antique touches.
