3 Bream St, Coogee NSW

“This reinvigorated freestanding 1920’s style Californian Bungalow cottage is situated on a north facing block within a short stroll to Coogee Beach, surrounding parks and nearby cafes, and only a short walk or drive to Royal Randwick shopping Centre, The Spot, UNSW and the Prince of Wales Hospital.  Our Randwick based building inspector (Trent) had the pleasure of inspecting this character filled home.

The house has 3 well-proportioned double bedrooms, one with adjoining sunroom, high-original ornate ceilings, timber flooring, and front patio / porch which were common characteristics for the period architecture.

When completing a building and pest inspection on a California Bungalow property in Sydney, in line with some of the above characteristics, we are looking in particular for the following:

  • Condition and potential upgrade of electrical services
  • State of timber flooring and associated substructure
  • Brickwork integrity
  • Cracking to internal and external building elements
  • Roof tile and ceiling related defects

Due to the Coogee Basin being on predominantly sandy soils, associated defects due to footing settlement is often identified and presents itself in the form of brickwork and ceiling cracking, bouncy timber floors and doors / windows jamming.

Older style houses often present certain defects due to ‘old’ meeting new building renovations.  Prospective buyers should not be deterred from these items, but embraced as part of the historical character of these rapidly disappearing historical architecturally significant homes, that are critical to the charm of the area.
