ROSE COTTAGE Circa 1834
What more would you expect from Richmond- a storybook cottage. Thought to be constructed in or around 1834 demonstrating the principal characteristics of a single storey brick Old Colonial Georgian workers cottage.
Now sympathetically modernised to enhance the lifestyle of today whilst in keeping with the Heritage Building requirements it exudes character and charm.
Behind the high picket fence, electric gates and manicured hedge the welcoming entrance opens into the 2 level lounge room perhaps a designated library for sunny winters at one end and of course your comfortable formal lounge set around the hearth at the other. A doorway extends into the kitchen dining room. The Old World style' timber kitchen, has ample storage as well as a pantry and servary bar, open plan in design with the spacious dining area. The side door extends out to a paved entertaining area with stone seating incorporated into the garden, which is partially shaded by a vine-covered pergola.
There is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and French doors opening out to the covered verandah and overlooking the rear garden and pathways, a spacious bathroom and laundry have a handy door to the backyard. The enormous timber beams within the home display its' unique character as well as the staircase up to the double dormer bedroom. This has built in wardrobes and drawers. The home filled with sunshine, has quality curtains, carpets, oiled floor boards, stone walls, and has been decorated with quality fittings in keeping with the era. Heating is now a floor mounted reverse cycle air conditioner.
A pebbled driveway to the double carport and single garage has stone pathways to the front, side and back doors, the fully fenced and very private back yard is a gardeners delight, which is full of hidden treats. Pebbled pathways meander around the cottage garden, incorporating small rooms' along the way for reading or afternoon tea. There is also a gated herb garden, storage sheds, and a walkway through an arbor to a centre stage circular design brick paved space for barbeques or entertaining.
This property offers a little bit of old and a little bit of new; it is totally stylish and peaceful, set in an incredibly romantic and delightful garden.
