That’s right. Everyone’s favourite house to point out to whoever else is in the car as you head up cross road to the start of the freeway. Known in the white pages as: 224b Cross Rd, Unley Park, but to everyone else as ‘The Men in Black House,’ due to the beautiful cardboard cut-outs of agent Kay and agent Jay that have stood on watch for 2 decades (going up in 1998).
While the property went on the market late in 2016 for purchase and has since been on and off the market with various agencies (the real estate kind – not the saving the earth kind). After 2 years the property was finally sold around August last year for $1,500,000!
But don’t think that means there is no chance you’ll ever get to live there, because it’s just been relisted, and this time for rent (check out the listing here). Which not only allows us to dream, but also gives a sneak peak inside this amazing house that we’ve all driven past, looked at the humble façade with our MIB agents keeping watch, and wondered what might lie behind.
It’s nothing to sneeze at, with 4 bedrooms, 1½ bath, missive kitchen, living/dining area, glass-flame fire, gym, balcony, 3 car spaces, plus a separate cottage with it’s own bed, bath, study, kitchen and living area, all on a 1950sqm block! On top of that, a beautiful gum tree in tranquil garden (with a creek that runs through it) and a spiral staircase that would fit into the MIB agency!
The downsides? Well, it’s 975 per WEEK, and once your lease is up – you’ll never remember you were there…
