Sitting centrally on its level, corner block, this 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom, cottage is surrounded by lawns and established trees. This property is all about potential and opportunity. The opportunity to take possession of a 2,016 sqm lot at the centre of Mount Helena and the potential to create a functional home based on the cottage’s 1930s features.

An original fireplace is the central feature of the open kitchen / dining room. Pine-fronted cabinets, lots of bench space, an upright gas oven and dishwasher deliver a functional space. Large, white floor tiles, a high ceiling and sunny yellow walls complete the welcoming country kitchen.

The loungeroom consists of two rooms connected by a double-wide opening. Currently configured as a formal lounge with separate study / library, the open living area is heated with a slow combustion heater fitted to the original fireplace and includes a R/C A/C and a ceiling fan for summer comfort.

The bedrooms and family bathroom are neat and tidy. Expanded to the extent of the original verandah, the bedrooms are large enough to allow for the addition of built-in robes. Two of the bedrooms are fitted with a ceiling fan and a third features lovely jarrah floors.

A large, paved verandah – the ideal spot for idling away a lazy afternoon or enjoying a barbecue – is accessed through an archway twined with climbing plants. A 2-car carport and garden sheds provide ample storage space.

It s difficult to ignore the advantages inherent in this property; a central position in a lovely Hills location. Secondary and primary schools are within walking distance, so too the amenities of town. The fabulous Heritage Trail opposite the front of the lot and the green open space of Elsie Austen Reserve minutes away. And a cottage that retains original features at its heart.
