The property at 4 St Phillips St, Abbotsford has been for sale all year.

An “old timer” Abbotsford million-dollar dump with a rusty roof and missing veranda has caught the eye of one of Australia’s biggest pop stars.

The well-worn cottage that has “seen things” at 4 St Phillips St has joined esteemed company on cult Instagram page Ugly Melbourne Houses, which pairs eyebrow-raising facades with smirk-inducing captions.

It appears Tina Arena is among 25,000 fans of the page, commenting: “Man, you’d wanna be passionate about renovating to tackle this place!!”

The next-door neighbour might offer a hint at the property’s future.

The mysterious admin thought that “may involve a sledgehammer”, but another follower wrote the place had “more charm than most architects could ever dream of”.

One commenter buying into the gag wanted to “give it a ciggie and a long neck of VB”.

But it’ll cost you a bit more to buy into the property. It’s been on the market for private sale with a price tag of $1.15 million through agency Langwell Harper all year.

Out the back of 4 St Phillips St, which has rear lane access.

The realestate.com.au listing admits the three-bedroom house “has seen better days” but claims “it offers an abundance of opportunistic value to home owners/renovators or astute developers looking at either a single or multi home proposition” — subject to council approval.

Time hasn’t been kind to this old character, but a nice 210sq m position between Collingwood Station and the Yarra River has it well placed for the future — if it survives.

Arena has made her own property moves in recent times, selling her Fitzroy home for more than $1.6 million in October 2017.

The Herald Sun has contacted listing agent Chris Stasinopoulos for comment.
