THIS charm­ing ren­o­vated cot­tage of­fers a light-filled in­te­rior with clas­sic fea­tures such as pol­ished tim­ber floors, char­ac­ter win­dows, high ceil­ings and VJ walls.

Cen­tral liv­ing ar­eas and three bed­rooms ex­tend across the up­per level of the house, while un­der­neath boasts a sin­gle garage, laun­dry, pow­der room and plenty of space for stor­age.

An ex­ter­nal stair­case at the front of the property as­cends to an en­try foyer with a high slanted ceil­ing and ac­cess to a wide cen­tral hall­way span­ning the length of the floor­plan.

At the rear of the level, liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas share an open­plan space fea­tur­ing pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing, high ceil­ings and fresh white tones.

Dec­o­ra­tive breeze­ways pro­vide a sep­a­ra­tion be­tween the two ar­eas and add a touch of char­ac­ter to the decor of the home.

An east-fac­ing kitchen sits con­ve­niently ad­ja­cent to the din­ing area, with tim­ber floors, tra­di­tional-style white cab­i­netry and large win­dows al­low­ing for nat­u­ral light and sub­ur­ban views. There is also an en­try point to the rear yard.

The bed­rooms are po­si­tioned to­wards the front of the house, with the main bed­room next to a nurs­ery.

This am­ple-sized room of­fers a gallery of char­ac­ter win­dows look­ing to the leafy street.

Fea­tures of the main bed­room in­clude tim­ber floors, high ceil­ings, a soft colour pal­ette, mir­rored built-in wardrobes and or­nate fret­work above the door­way.

Ser­viced by a cen­tral fam­ily bath­room, both other bed­rooms have pe­riod-style fea­tures, while one also boasts french doors leading to the en­try foyer.

Out­side, there is a large grassed rear yard framed by green hedges and gar­den beds.

About 2km from Bris­bane city, the stylish res­i­dence also in­cludes ceil­ing fans in the bed­rooms and re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing in the liv­ing and din­ing area.
