Character Worker's Cottage with Excellent Prospects

This home has all the charm and character you'd expect of a quintessential cottage. The location is fabulous, and it presents as comfortable and inviting. It also has the potential for a substantial renovation, perhaps to raise and build under (STCA), if you relish the idea of making your mark in the vibrant Red Hill community.

The home sits behind a secure high picket fence that provides a private courtyard and entrance. It offers many gorgeous original character features including high ceilings, polished floorboards, fretwork, and VJ lining boards.

Through the original front entrance door, the traditional hallway has been modified to allow for a spacious living room, with French doors opening to the front verandah. The master bedroom is to the right of the hall, and provides a bank of built-in robes.

A family bathroom has traditional tiling, a beautiful antique timber vanity, and a clawfoot bath with a shower over the bath. A skylight has been installed, ensuring ample natural light. A second double bedroom is located in close proximity.

The kitchen is fashioned in keeping with the character of the home, with plentiful timber cabinetry and bench tops. A Ilve gas cooktop and stainless steel oven will have you cooking in style. The kitchen is open to the dining area and a second living space at the rear, with this whole rear section taking advantage of beautiful stained glass windows. They are an eye-catching feature, especially when they catch the sunlight.

A bank of stacker doors opens to the substantial rear deck – large enough for an outdoor dining setting and a lounge setting. The deck has views all the way to Mt Coot-tha, and is shaded by a large and lovely old mango tree. There is no doubt that the deck will be your favourite place, whether it be alfresco breakfasts, candle-lit dinners, or entertaining friends.

The back yard is relatively level, and certainly large enough for a pool if desired. A drive way extends down the side of the house, with a carport near the front of the house.

There is a very large split system air conditioner installed in the kitchen, which probably works to keep the whole cottage comfortable. There are also multiple ceiling fans to assist with air flow. Security is well thought out, with window grills on all vulnerable windows and a secure entrance screen door.

The location doesn't get much better than this – a wide, fairly level street in Red Hill, for a start, is not easy to find! It is in the school catchment for Ithaca Creek State School, with kindergartens and many private schools in easy commuting distance.
