Cottage Perfection; Garden Delight

Cottage Perfection: Garden Delight

Embodying the romance of a bygone era, this sympathetically renovated Old Bowral darling is a dream cottage.  But it’s when you wander around the back, and see the magic of its exquisitely landscaped garden, sunny entertaining deck and majestic old trees that it will completely steal your heart.

The Cottage:

The charming 1950’s features – high ceilings, timber floorboards, decorative cornices and picture rails –  have been beautifully enhanced by the modern kitchen (featuring gas cooktop and overhead task lighting), laundry (with second toilet) and bathroom.  With its built-in cupboards and cabinets, hand-crafted bookshelves and delightful styling, this place has a modern-retro vibe that evokes a special warmth.   

The kitchen flows to a dining room and large, open-plan living room with an original fireplace, but the home is also centrally heated.   The three bedrooms are spacious and one of them is separately located at the rear through bi-fold doors.  The home then flows onto a spacious timber entertaining deck surrounded by espaliered pears trees.

The Garden:

With a perfect northerly aspect, the rear garden is spacious, private, fully irrigated and exquisitely landscaped.  Featuring established cherry laurel hedging, majestic old trees including a grove of birch, raised garden beds and perfectly-placed paving, this fenced garden is picture perfect.  The highlight is the oversized single garage which masquerades as a second pretty weatherboard cottage and is begging to be renovated into a granny flat or studio.  It is already lined, insulated and has plumbing in situ and there is space to build a further carport (STCA) if desired.   

At the front of the house, a further beautiful landscaped and grassy area is hidden from public view by rows of established hedging.

Just a short, level stroll to Bowral Hospital, coffee shops, schools and Bowral town centre, inspection of this divine cottage will warm your heart.
