There is an undeniable beauty in the simplicity of this workers cottage, from the wide, sun-drenched porch to the high ceilings, ornate cornices and the original white timber window frames. With a typical layout of 2 rooms either side of a central hall and an enclosed porch, bathroom and kitchen across the rear, this delightful Hills cottage is polished, pared-back and perfect.
High ceilings and a large corner lot mitigate against the home’s limited floorplan while freshly painted walls and new floor coverings bring an air of crisp modernity. The main bedroom and formal lounge room are arranged at either side of the hallway, both of these spacious rooms boast new carpets and original ceiling roses. A second bedroom, or home office, has been created by enclosing one end of the wide front porch.
Across the back of the home is a laundry/mudroom, bathroom with W.C. vanity and shower, and a kitchen with a freestanding oven tucked into the original fireplace.
Original outbuildings – including a laundry, shower and plumbed W.C. and a chicken coop bring country charm to the backyard. A single car garage/shed and small garden shed provide additional storage.
Old gardens have a particular magic, a product of established trees, old-fashioned shrubs and a sense that everything is settled and slightly overgrown. This garden adds to that magic with stone retaining walls, a grove of fruit trees and space to establish a veggie patch. Scheme water makes maintaining the garden easy.
Don’t miss the opportunity to discover the beauty and freedom of life in the Hills. A large corner lot, enchanting cottage and excellent location will see your three wishes granted.
