cottage charm close to city
HOMEBUYERS who crave c o s mopol i t a n living will enjoy this well-located cottage.
They’ll be minutes to Goodwood Rd and the city and near good s chools a nd transport.
‘‘It’s certainly at the very affordable end of Goodwood,’’ agent Paul McWilliam says.
‘‘We’re aware of the Goodwood benefits, close to city and Goodwood Rd, and being a quality, character home, I think it’s got a lot going for it.’’
One of the great things about this property is its extension includes a third bedroom.
‘‘A lot of the similar homes that have done an extension might have only put on a family room and kitchen and not an additional bedroom; this one has three which I think is a bit of a bonus,’’ Mr McWilliam says.
The home has character features, including its ceilings of about 3.65m, leadlighting and classic 1900 facade.
‘‘The leadlight and the archway in the hall are certainly standouts,’’ Mr McWilliam says.
At the front of the home are two bedrooms, both with fireplaces.
The third takes up the entire top level and has a built-in wardrobe.
In the centre of the house is the lounge with heater to keep you cosy in the cold months.
At the rear is the open-plan living area.
The kitchen, meals and living area are a good place to entertain.
French doors provide natural, winter light, thanks to the back of the house facing north.
A spacious bathroom also is near this area. The private courtyard has shady trees and a raised garden bed.
