Cottage charisma with a modern revamp
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.
