Giving 'the local' a whole new meaning
Nestled in the heart of Footscray, on the crossroad of Buckingham and Ann Streets, stands an iconic Aussie pub: The Buckingham Hotel. Known fondly as 'The Buck', the former Footscray watering hole will soon become even more 'local' to those lucky enough to call it home.
Rich in community history, the 1425 square metre site will be transformed into 22 stylish townhouse apartments, with the two storey Edwardian facade retained and incorporating four of the homes as part of its thoughtful design. Where once its redbrick walls welcomed locals inside for after-work drinks and counter meals, the chic new development will embrace first-home buyers, young families and those looking to downsize without comprising on location and quality.
These double level townhouses range from 78m2 to 101m2 in size and incorporate clever layouts and premium fittings.
