'This weather makes me feel like having a few drinks in the backyard', remarked one casual observer. The weather (and mood) was certainly laid back as the spread out crowd slowly shuffled up to this auction and found their spots in the shade. Bidder 1 waved a home brochure to signal their intent with an opening of $2,300,000. Auctioneer Todd Braggins look...

Comments on 6 Bourne Road GLEN IRIS

Bourne Road in the Summerhill Estate Area is one Glen Iris's better streets east of the Freeway.

The home itself is a rambler - a hotchpotch, with rooms tacked on here/there and not of the highest quality. However good light throughout.

But you know what? It still sort of works. Cutting edge, no way; indoor/outdoor to die for, nope; quality fixtures and fittings I don't think so.

But if you want entry level and the price is right, then 6 Bourne...... If this pushes towards 3 million then that is over the top, you've got better alternatives, but if it sells around mid $2m's and you have a got a big tribe then this maybe 6 Bourne is your answer.

Pool out the back dominates the yard and the gazebo for want of better words means grass is at a premium.

Upstairs is rooms, rooms and more rooms and they sort of work - some privacy would be possible as would a good pillow fight.

Not my cup of tea but then I have snobbish tendencies at times, however if you want a basic home at the right price and assuming it is at the right price then this may well be yours.
