A HOME’S history can work its way into the very fabric of the building.

By Andria Savva

Buyers inspecting a McKinnon home might want to prime their nose for the faint smell of newsprint.

Home to a Leader Newspapers editor and company stalwart for 56 years, 45 Fitzroy St, McKinnon is on the market for the first time in four decades with Ray White Carnegie.

Vacant since John Murray Smith’s death in 2016, the 1930s art deco home still has charm and character written all over it.

The one-bedroom house has a cream rendered facade with red brick highlights and within are double-hung windows, french doors and intricate cornicing.

The north-facing back yard also has a garage with access to rear and side laneways.

The home will go to auction at 11am on Saturday, February 17, with a price guide of $1 million-$1.1 million.
