GOING UP A WHOLE NEW STOREY
IN a wonderful union of old and new, this lovely Kensington cottage fuses character charm with the functionality of contemporary spaces.
Standing on 519sq m of green title land, the house was built in the 1920s but has since been renovated and extended.
Originally from Queensland, owners Sue and her husband Uday have lived in the home with their children Phoebe (13) and Brij (11), as well as labrador Ladoo and guinea pig Justin Jellybean, for the past two years.
“We bought it thinking we were there for life, but my husband’s work is taking us back to Brisbane,” Sue said.
“My husband is an engineer and he always said ‘We could go up’ because from the one storey you get city glimpses, so if you went up a level the views would be magnificent.”
Past the secure front yard, the entry opens up to reveal a charming central hallway leading to four double-sized bedrooms with high ceilings and timber floorboards.
