Character Cottage Brilliantly Located

Astute buyers will see the potential of this cottage immediately. Whether you're looking for an inner urban home that is comfortable and very livable right now, but with huge potential to renovate to your taste and requirements, or an investment property in an unbeatable location, this cottage ticks all the boxes.

It sits high on a neat 405m2 block, behind a retaining wall and picket fence, offering district views, and rather impressive street appeal. There is potential here to raise and build under (STCA), which would create a substantial family home.

It offers all the features expected of traditional Queenslanders, including VJ walls, casement windows, polished timber flooring, fretwork, an entrance door with gorgeous stained glass, and French doors opening to the front verandah. The home has obviously been well cared for, and has fresh, white and bright interior paintwork.

The living and dining rooms provide good use of space, and the efficient kitchen is conveniently located. The kitchen is equipped with timber cabinetry, gas cook top and oven. It offers generous bench space, and a servery to the living rooms. The expansive rear patio is perfect for taking advantage of the morning sun, and for entertaining.

The home has 3 double bedrooms, and a central family bathroom with a bath and separate shower. There is also an accessible study with built-in storage. A split system air conditioner has been installed in the living rooms, and ceiling fans assist with air circulation.

The delightful rear garden is palm fringed and offers a level grassed area just perfect for children to play. The laundry and separate powder room are accessed from the patio.

The location here is brilliant- almost everywhere, including the CBD, is within walking distance, with the CBD being only 3kms or so away. If walking is not your style, you can catch a bus just around the corner. The Kelvin Grove Urban Village with shops, cafés and market, and the QUT campus are also very close by, and it sits in the catchment for the highly regarded Petrie Terrace State School. Many private schools are also very convenient. Despite the proximity to the city, multiple parks, including the Victoria Park Golf Course are easily accessible. It is very evident that you could live here and never need to drive a car.
