Impeccably presented and surrounded by a green thumb’s paradise, this gorgeous storybook cottage has been lovingly cared for and maintained. An ambience of romance and peace exude throughout and the property and it is a pure delight to explore inside and out with its tastefully appointed interiors through to the lush outdoors with water features, fish ponds, pots bursting with flowers, fruit trees, a native beehive, vegetable gardens and quaint paved pathways.
An original worker’s cottage built circa 1920, the current owners (one being a highly-regarded carpenter) have lived here for 30 years and have left no stone unturned in the fastidious maintenance and presentation of the house and gardens.
A happy, well lived-in home, period features include timber-framed casement and double-hung windows, sturdy VJ panelling, heritage brass light switches, lattice and awnings whilst storage wall features and rich wood floors adorn the cottage. Timeless timber inclusions that only get better with age have been generously contributed by its carpenter owner in the kitchen, bathroom, entry stairs and cabinetry throughout.
Set over two levels and capturing refreshing cross breezes all-year-round, the cottage is airy yet cosy with elevated and raked ceilings and welcoming nooks and spaces to relax and entertain in. It is complete with two bedrooms upstairs and bedroom nook downstairs, a large sunroom, a choice of upper and lower living spaces, a bathroom with striking timber vanity and a beautiful timber kitchen that overlooks the lush gardens. The kitchen is well-equipped with quality appliances, fixtures and ample timber benchtops and cabinetry. The laundry features an original triple concrete sink.
Outdoor living and entertaining is a breeze with an elevated side deck and inviting covered patio area in the backyard perfect for barbecues or sundowners with friends. The backyard is lush and private and fruit and citrus include lemon, mandarin, cherry guava, custard apple, paw paws and tamarillo . There is a shade house and raised vegetable gardens.
