Potential in prime position
WITH character features such as polished timber floors, soaring ceilings, spacious rooms and ornate breezeways, this charming house boasts a corner position close to New Farm Park and Merthyr village.
The cottage, which has potential for renovation, offers three bedrooms, front and rear verandas and large living areas on the upper level, while a garage, laundry and storage space sit below.
Upon entry into the house is a wide hallway flowing down the centre of the floorplan. The living and dining areas, situated on the left, have an open-plan design. Boasting sleek timber floors, there is also a decorative archway and a fresh white colour scheme with a striking feature wall. A set of french doors open to the front veranda.
The hallway continues past bedrooms to an open-plan space encompassing a casual meals area and the kitchen. The meals area has glass bifold doors opening to a rear deck, providing a natural extension of living space and plenty of natural light.
The adjacent kitchen is modern and bright and has a blend of industrial and character design. Features include stainless-steel benchtops, servery windows, extensive white cabinetry and a breakfast bar with a timber benchtop.
At the front of the floorplan, the main bedroom offers french doors to a light-filled sunroom.
All three bedrooms have timber floors and are serviced by a central bathroom with a claw foot bathtub and separate shower.
Underneath the house is concrete-slabbed and accessible by a roller door. The rear yard incorporates a flat grassed lawn area, and mature trees and plants.
Set on a low-maintenance 405sq m block, the house is within walking distance to the Sydney St ferry terminal, Brisbane Powerhouse and an array of cafes and restaurants.
