Hidden behind a long established, high and private front hedge and nestled amongst delightful gardens, you will find this wonderful, extended heritage weatherboard cottage. The original home was built in 1927 and then extended by the current owner in 2012 retaining all the character and charm of the 1920's but adding extra space and utility. Period features include wide polished Baltic Pine floors, picture rails, 9-foot ceilings and timber sash windows. The extension is sympathetic to the original with continued use of matching floorboards and windows.

Both the kitchen and main bathroom were renovated in 2006 and suit the home beautifully. The kitchen boasts an island bench, and the bathroom houses a classic clawfoot bath and separate shower. The main bedroom is part of the extension and is not only large but features a walk-in robe and ensuite. This room opens through French doors onto a low, hardwood rear deck and overlooks the delightful rear gardens. The second bedroom contains one of the original open fireplaces from 1927 and is simply charming. Charming also is the original front verandah (complete with stained glass), what a place to sit with a pot of tea or sip a gin and tonic and watch the world go by.

There's so much history here that it's almost tangible and all of this old-world charm wrapped up in an almost perfect package (with even further potential) could be yours. The owner is moving interstate and is selling, so come, see, buy!
