VIC­TO­RIA cot­tage is a gothic re­vival-style home built circa 1860 and you will be rapt as soon as you see the fa­cade with dec­o­ra­tive awnings, neat gar­dens and man­i­cured hedges.

The home has four bed­rooms and a pe­riod-style bath­room com­plete with a claw-foot bath.

The ro­man­tic at­tic mas­ter bed­room is spa­cious and boasts a walk-in wardrobe, tim­ber beams, an ex­posed brick fea­ture wall plus two ceil­ing fans.

With in­ter­lock­ing brick in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal walls, the home fea­tures 3m ceil­ings, down­lights, plan­ta­tion shut­ters and wide board tal­low­wood tim­ber floors fin­ished in Tung oil.

The large eat-in kitchen has plenty of stor­age space with french doors that open out to the al fresco din­ing area and a court­yard that is shaded by a Jacaranda tree.

A sec­ond un­der­cover al fresco en­ter­tain­ment area over­looks the gar­dens and two court­yards that are com­plete with wa­ter fea­tures. The back­yard is large enough for the chil­dren to play and is fenced off to en­sure pri­vacy and safety.
