Cot­tage with clas­sic twist

This one’s built with solid bones, writes Tom Dougherty.

AS­TONE cot­tage at Un­ley has been com­pletely ren­o­vated and of­fers mod­ern-style liv­ing, the ven­dor says. ‘‘It still has that clas­sic feel on the out­side of the sym­met­ri­cal cot­tage but on the in­side it is just the ul­ti­mate mod­ern life­style that ev­ery­body is look­ing for these days,’’ she says.

‘‘Ev­ery­thing is done, there is noth­ing else to do, and there is plenty of room if you wanted to add a pool, the yard is more than large enough to do that.’’

The property has four bed­rooms in the front orig­i­nal part of the cot­tage.

‘‘For me the bones of the house were fan­tas­tic, it is not of­ten that you find a house that you don’t have to com­pro­mise on bed­room space,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘This has four or even five fan­tas­tic dou­ble­sized rooms.’’

The mas­ter has a walk-in robe, a built-in robe and an en­suite with a shower.

The other bed­rooms are ser­viced by a bath­room that fea­tures a free­stand­ing bath.

Also at the front of the home is a for­mal sit­ting room with a fire­place and pol­ished tim­ber floors.

At the back of the home is an open-plan kitchen, meals and fam­ily room, which has a tiled floor.

The kitchen was built by JAG Kitchens, and fea­tures a but­ler’s pantry, Cae­sar­Stone bench­tops, and Blanco ap­pli­ances. A slid­ing glass door in the fam­ily room opens out to a deck along the back of the property.
