Bringing back the charm of yesteryear
Heritage listed and brimming with charm, this restored Victorian period home boasts modern inclusions and is in a prime corner-block position, writes Azal Khan.
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.
