Charming Paddington Cottage

This lovely Paddington cottage with a return front verandah has been lived in and loved by the same owner for 21 years. This is now your chance to write the next chapter in its history.

The home sits on a low maintenance block in an excellent position, in one of the most desirable streets in Paddington. It has terrific street appeal and very much represents the character that Paddington is renowned for. It has been very well maintained over the years, and retains most of its original features.

Inside, the charm of VJ walls and ceilings is immediately apparent. The living room features an original exposed brick fireplace with a gas log fire installed – wonderful to sit around on cold winter evenings. Carpeting in this area is a soft grey, complimenting the light and neutral paintwork. Adjacent to the dining area is a well-equipped kitchen, with a 90cm stainless steel gas cooktop and oven, and dishwasher. Ample storage and bench space ensures that the kitchen is practical and food preparation enjoyable. There is also a study nook adjacent to the kitchen, which opens onto the side verandah and back verandah via gorgeous original leadlight French doors.

The bedrooms are carpeted and continue the neutral, light colour scheme. Two bedrooms are double size, and a third smaller bedroom opens onto the verandah. There is a central neat and functional bathroom with a separate toilet. Opening off from the bathroom is the laundry, which conveniently opens onto the back verandah through more leadlight French doors.

The house captures the breezes and offers great livability through having both front and back verandahs, and original double hung windows. A split system air-conditioner in the living room ensures year-round comfort. The house has been re-stumped and extensively concreted underneath, creating a garage and large storage area. It is structurally very sound and solid - it is rare to find such an original house in such excellent structural condition. A side garden and lawn area offers the opportunity to install a pool, if desired.

The home is very close to public transport, private and public schools, and is within walking distance to the cafes and quirky shops on La Trobe Terrace. This home represents a fabulous opportunity for someone to enjoy this delightful and original Paddington cottage.
