About the Property:
A Charming Cottage in one of Auchenflower’s premium streets.
You will be captivated by this lovely cottage that was built in 1894. It is a warm and welcoming home in a fantastic location, sympathetically blending the typical character features of an early worker’s cottage, with modern day conveniences.
A high fence and swaying palm trees amongst the lovely sub-tropical garden ensures that the front verandah, with city views, is tranquil and private. Upon entering the home, you will be immediately aware of its calm, cool and composed ambience. Original character features include high ceilings, VJ walls, and original fretwork.
The traditional central hallway has been opened up to allow for a staircase and cosy study nook. You will find a sunny bedroom to the right of the hallway. What would have been the original back two rooms of the cottage are now a more spacious living and dining room. An absolutely gorgeous pendant light over the dining table is a feature here. The family bathroom is convenient and offers a luxuriant spa bath.
Through to the kitchen – which is a generous size with ample storage. It has a stainless steel free-standing gas cooker, a concealed dishwasher and lots of natural light.

There is a fairly level and open back yard, edged by trees for privacy. A laundry is located to the side the deck.
Downstairs is the large master bedroom, with French doors opening to a courtyard. This restful bedroom is airconditioned, has a walk-in wardrobe, and ensuite bathroom.
All vulnerable windows have security screens. The elevated frontage and central hallway ensures that the home receives excellent cross ventilation. A single car garage is provided under the house, with extra storage.
