Urban living in this historic port village affords a vibrant lifestyle envied by many; absolutely everything is at your doorstep! Located along Hesse Street only 1 block from thriving cafes, boutiques, galleries, foreshore parkland and beaches, this upgraded cottage offers the ultimate lifestyle for permanent living or holiday enjoyment.
Filled with features that create the charm of period homes an addition to the rear of the property is 1 step closer to truly bringing this home into the modern world. Original polished floorboards below soaring 10ft ceilings, with double hung windows to the original section of the home create that character that is so rarely replicated, yet it's the open plan living, kitchen and dining towards the rear of the home that give this property its modern day appeal. A large addition with wall to wall glazing opens to the garden, allowing glorious morning sun and endless natural light to flood the space and creates that effortless indoor/outdoor lifestyle so sought after in today's world.
An original brick chimney remains within the kitchen, housing the oven and creating a feature centre piece to a brand new kitchen for those wishing to renovate. A charming verandah wraps the north east portion of the home for protected outdoor spaces and a sheltered entrance to the home. Brick paving and elevated decking provide a vantage point to either sit and enjoy the gardens or watch the world pass by along the street front!
Along this verandah, a pretty stained glass entrance door creates a characterful formal entrance and leads to the 2 enormous bedrooms and central bathroom. The well sized bathroom features toilet, period pedestal basin with co-ordinating bath and shower overhead.
Rose filled cottage gardens surround the rear and front sections of the plot where built in picnic table settings create that iconic holiday home feel and allow enjoyment of the vastly lawned large gardens. Established fruit trees and a garden shed with outdoor WC is located close to the home with rear vehicle access through double gates available from St Andrews Street for the future addition of a garage (STCA).
A character filled home in a fantastic location with plenty of scope for restoration, renovation or redevelopment!
