Has Bradman Batted Here?
Reported to have been built for Sir Donald Bradman’s sister, this divine cottage has the perfect country outlook – a nature reserve across the street, including its own children’s playground!
Set behind a picturesque old post and rail fence, this weatherboard darling is on a low-maintenance, flat parcel of land – perfect for the retiree seeking easy living or the time-poor busy young family. Surrounded by mature trees and borrowed vistas, it sits in a quiet street, lined with spring-blossoming plum trees and is an easy walk to Sturt Gallery for art-lovers and also Mittagong Train Station and some excellent coffee shops.
At the front of the house is a gorgeous sandstone deck, completely covered and perfect for catching the morning sun with a cup of tea as you enjoy parkland views.
It also features a huge double garage at the rear, which is electrically wired and boasts skylights. This could be transformed into a studio with some minor renovations – French doors opening on to the rear garden would create the perfect spot for quiet work amongst the trees.
With four bedrooms (two bedrooms plus one bathroom at each end), a kitchen that flows to a paved rear entertaining area and a large central, open-plan living and dining room, the floor-plan is versatile and provides guests with separation from the main bedroom end.
With enormous storage capacity in the kitchen and plenty of room in the garden for a vegie patch or two, this picture-perfect country cottage is a “tree-changers” delight. And for the price of a one-bedroom apartment in Sydney it is sure to sell quickly, so don’t delay your inspection!
