In the Wake of Halley’s Comet
Built circa 1910, this gorgeous weatherboard character cottage with spectacular views across to Mt Gibraltar and Oxley Hill, would have held a prime viewing position when Halley’s Comet made a rare appearance in that same year.
Beautifully renovated, it features four spacious bedrooms, an enormous and beautiful living room with an open fireplace, and gas ducted central heating throughout. With a country-style kitchen and open-plan dining area, mudroom, beautiful bathrooms (the ensuite has underfloor heating and a double shower and the main features a spa bath), ten-foot ceilings, divine pendant lights, timber floors and stunning traditional architectural features, it will appeal to those seeking the ultimate in traditional charm paired with modern decorating flair.
From three rooms in the house, including the kitchen, you can step through French doors onto an expansive deck that provides stretching views and an excellent covered entertaining area. In the lovely large back garden enjoy paved entertaining areas and mature hedging. Another feature is the enormous 84 square metre shed at the rear. It could be utilised as a double garage and there is a paved parking area for three further cars at its entrance.
The front garden features two beautiful old magnolia trees that provide visual amenity and privacy during the warmer months. With loads of street appeal, you could wait around until the next predicted orbit of Halley’s Comet in 2061 for a viewing, but you would definitely miss out on this century-old charmer – it will move fast. Be ready to be whisked away to your own date with history.
