This charming 1920s cottage nestled in Queanbeyan could be just the home you are looking for.
The three-bedroom cottage at No. 134 Ross Road has an abundance of period charm and character that truly is a testament to the 1920s.
The idyllic entry of the home begins with the wide front veranda followed by two-bedrooms on either side of the hall.
From the hallway opens out to the lounge room and a smaller bedroom to the right. This bedroom is marketed as having mixed functionality as a “home office or even a formal dining if that suits yours your family needs better”.
The lounge room has sliding doors to a north facing deck and ensures an abundance of sun all year round.
One of the many things that is special about this property is it’s open-plan kitchen and dining area, which strays away from the classic 1920s cottage layout.
The owners have retained the structure of the old wooden fireplace but updated it to fit the purpose of a storage shelf for cooking books and spices.
There is also a renovated bathroom, a separate toilet and sliding door to the deck and garden.
Another quirky charm about the cottage is the studio off the garage.
“The property sits on a really big block and the previous owners found a way to create a big, separate, north-facing area where they can do some study,” he said.
Mr Maxwell said the periodic front gate that displays the house number “is really cute” and “a little bit different.”
“The polished timber floors also strike you straight away and gives off that character charm.”
According to Zango Data, the property was last on the market in 2011 when it sold for $443,000. The 2021 median sale price in Queanbeyan is $415,000.
The property is currently listed with a “mid to high $600,000” price guide.
“We have had really good feedback so far with 174 people through on Saturday,” said Mr Maxwell.
