Stone pillars encase the original main entry of this classic weatherboard cottage, freshly painted in stunning tones to highlight the sash and picture windows that capture the 80 year old garden and mature plantings enclosing the property. Entering from Mills Ave down a private laneway reveals the 1950s character home and direct entry from the paved drive to the upper level. Country Provincial styling flows throughout, complimented by a neutral decor and whites in tiles and cabinetry for a contemporary touch. The traditional hall and panelled doors lead to 3 bedrooms, including Master with BIR and WIR, central kitchen and superb open plan meals and living area to relax and enjoy the charming soul of this home, warmed by hydronic heating and the original open fireplace awaiting restoration! Private, yet an abundance of light so often sought in the hills is accentuated by high ceilings and double French Doors opening to the deep verandah, detailed by original fretwork and treetops views beyond. Sassy black and white tiles adorn the bathroom with white fittings and heated towel rails. Natural warmth exudes from this character residence - BUT THERE'S MORE! The fabulous option of home office or self contained apartment on the lower level! High Ceilings and private entry under the verandah, the floor plan allows for a bedroom and living with the kitchen and bathroom already renovated and colour palette in keeping with upstairs! Add a staircase to create a grand residence, the choice is yours. Within walking distance to Sassafras or Olinda Village and all the hard work completed, this true hills residence has to be seen to be appreciated.
