Homeownership has long been considered Australia’s Big Dream, but as any young Aussie knows, entering the real estate market is very expensive.
For this reason, many people choose to buy run down properties, either to renovate them or to demolish them completely. But unfortunately old houses usually (not always) mean cursed houses.
So without further ado, I present to you: 9 Station Avenue, Blackwood.
At first glance, it looks like your regular siding house. The paint is peeling and the kitchen could use a makeover, but it also has a large backyard, a tub (which is surprisingly hard to find), and enough space to make this house a home.
Fresh and normal.
Nothing weird to see here.
UNTIL we get to the bedroom, which – for lack of a better word – is cursed and should be wise, burned to the ground and never to be talked about again.
In what appears to be an old covered doorway, the former owners decided to paint a mural of a small child holding a teddy bear.
“It’s actually a painting on wallpaper”, sales agent Pierre Jeffrey says realestate.com.au.
âIt’s a sturdy sliding door, locked with bolts, of yesteryear. “
I know, I know, people have different tastes when it comes to design, but uhâ¦ what the hell?
âThere were eight girls raised in this house and one of the girlsâ¦ put this in there many years ago,â Jeffrey said, as if this was meant to allay any fears that the house would be haunted. shit.
Before going on the market, the house was owned by the same family and had occupied it for 57 years, which means that it is probably just a beautiful family home, but I cannot stress this enough: damn .
Cursed, Cursed, Cursed, Cursed, Cursed, Cursed.
Jeffrey clarified that the house had essentially just been listed for demolition or heavily refurbished, which makes the scary image less of a dealbreaker.
âTo me, this is something you would probably crush,â he said.
The house does not have a price guide, but will be available for auction on November 28. So if you are looking for a haunted house or just a piece of land in Blackwood, SA, go for it.
