Cot­tage charisma with a mod­ern re­vamp

The Gazette Real Estate - - VIEW -

This en­chant­ing home with its cot­tage façade and pretty gar­den sur­rounds is noth­ing short of sweet bliss.

A thought­ful ren­o­va­tion and stylish makeover has re­sulted in a light, bright in­te­rior with all the mod­ern ameni­ties and com­forts for to­day’s life­style. Po­si­tioned to please, the prop­erty is within a short stroll of the War­ragul Coun­try Club, schools, park­land, walk­ing trails and the cor­ner store. ‘Or­chard House’, built in in the 1950’s, lends its name from the or­chards that once sur­rounded the cot­tage.

The three bed­room home now sits on an ap­prox­i­mate 499m2 cor­ner al­lot­ment, ac­cessed from Sut­ton Street and Glouces­ter Place. Com­pact, yet prac­ti­cal the lay­out in­cludes the three bed­rooms with ceil­ing fans and built-in robes, a cen­tral bath­room, sep­a­rate liv­ing room, kitchen and meals area, Euro­pean laun­dry and two toi­lets. A cov­ered deck and paved ter­race is per­fect for sum­mer en­ter­tain­ing in the pri­vate court­yard gar­den. There is also a sin­gle car­port with an ad­join­ing store­room/work­shop, ac­cessed from Sut­ton Street. Vis­i­tors en­ter the prop­erty from Glouces­ter Place, past the picket fence and along the laven­der lined path to the front of the home.

A lovely lead­light en­try door opens di­rectly into the light, airy liv­ing room where high ceil­ings, pic­ture rails and the orig­i­nal fire­place are links to the cot­tage’s past. The cool white and soft grey colour scheme is a mod­ern choice, coun­tered with warm pol­ished tim­ber flooring. Split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ing and a gas log fire in the fire­place pro­vide year round com­fort. A large cor­ner win­dow makes the most of the northerly as­pect and gor­geous gar­den out­look. Ad­join­ing the liv­ing room is the kitchen and meals area.

White cab­i­netry, mar­ble like counter tops and a sub­way tiled splash­back are teamed with qual­ity cook­ing ap­pli­ances and a stain­less steel dish­washer. A walk-in pantry ac­com­mo­dates the Euro­pean laun­dry, whilst a nearby study nook is a con­ve­nient fea­ture. Dark painted dado de­fines the din­ing area and is a strik­ing con­trast to the oth­er­wise white pal­ette. From the kitchen a glass pan­elled door leads out­side to the deck, a sep­a­rate toi­let and onto the ter­race and court­yard gar­den.

The three bed­rooms, bath­room and a linen press are found down a short pas­sage­way from the liv­ing room. Beau­ti­fully re­fur­bished, the bath­room fea­tures a walk-in shower, van­ity, sec­ond toi­let, qual­ity tiling and matt black tap­ware.

As part of the ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion, all the orig­i­nal win­dows have been re­placed with dou­ble glazed win­dows, a more en­ergy ef­fi­cient op­tion as well as an ex­cel­lent sound in­su­la­tor. Pe­riod charm, per­fect pre­sen­ta­tion and a first rate lo­ca­tion, this is a prop­erty you’ll fall head over heels for. Num­ber 70 Sut­ton Street, War­ragul is to be auc­tioned at 12.00pm on Satur­day 13th Oc­to­ber 2018. Mark your diaries to avoid dis­ap­point­ment.
