Picket fence, iron-laced verandah, colonial windows and quaint miner's cottage facade may have you thinking this pretty little gem is all sweetness and light. However, she packs quite a punch when it comes to powerful potential to rejuvenate her interior and develop her vast derriere, STCA of course. Merely the dream of a big backyard maybe on your wish-list, but even still this address offers scope for a nest egg, either for future resale or bricks and mortar investment.
Ready to be revived simply by a splash of paint, new floor coverings and window furnishings, much could be accomplished with a cosmetic makeover. Otherwise, just add new kitchen cupboards and appliances. Though do keep the old combustion stove for its character, set in its red brick chimney with charming mantle.
Now imagine replacing the gas heater with a gas log fire in the slate fireplace as the focal point in the surprisingly spacious living area and you've got a gorgeous, cosy place to call home. There's already split system heating and cooling, along with a recently renovated bathroom-laundry combination, and even ample room for a home office.
Beneath the paved back verandah, barbies with family and friends can be enjoyed in full view of a blooming garden, filled with all kinds of flowering flora and leafy foliage. Lemon and other trees, succulents plus what else only a lengthy adventure would divulge, thrive in this obviously fertile soil. Vintage shedding along each fence-line close to the house add privacy, let alone workshop and storage space.
Resting upon approximately 1000sqm (a classic quarter acre), prospects for sub-division seem highly viable. The existing 2 bedroom residence is positioned at the very front of the block alongside a wide driveway, ideal attributes for development, council permitting. That particular of the property not only retains the streetscape, thereby possibly keeping the planning department onside, it also allows this lovely little cottage to remain intact.
Just a few doors from a National Heritage Park, bushwalking as well as picnics and dog walking can bring blissful serenity to separate stress from daily life. Also within walking distance are 2 primary schools, railway station and shopping precinct, let alone a host of restaurants, cafes, Botanic Gardens and a myriad of renowned attractions.
