House in SANDY BAY

Turn of the century class

  • 2 Beds
  • 1 Bath

This beautifully renovated Victorian cottage is a pure example of the fusion of modern with the traditional. Ceiling roses, original fireplaces and polished hardwood floors are features yet you will enjoy the best of modern comforts underfloor ducted gas heating throughout, designer bathroom, high ceilings, quality features and fittings - and insulation.

Its owners have spent the past six years painstakingly restoring this gorgeous turn of the century cottage into a lovely home. No expense has been spared. Unlike its neighbours, it is set back off the road a little haven in one of the prime locations in Sandy Bay. It is a block to one of the best shopping centres in the State, and a flat walk at that suiting a young family, and perfect for couples to enjoy the caf lifestyle, bars, restaurants and boutiques, as well as supermarkets and specialty shops. And the Marieville Esplanade beach, yacht clubs, sporting and playgrounds are five minutes away. This is true lifestyle living in a character home.

The entrance to this single level cottage is through a classic yet simple front garden secure and private behind a high picket fence. The master bedroom is on your right and features custom fitted wardrobe with quality drawers and fixtures floor to ceiling. Next door, down the polished floor hallway is the second bedroom, with original fireplace and built-ins fitted either side.
There is a third room at the front set up as a semi formal lounge and TV room, but it could easily be adapted to a third room or guest room depending on your requirement.
The dining and kitchen area is lovely and features a celery top pine mantel piece over an original fireplace, gas cooking, granite benchtops, sliding door pantry and antique island bench.

The bathroom is an absolute highlight, with floor to ceiling Italian tiles, a free standing bath, floating vanity with touch drawers, heated mirror and towel rail. It contains a toilet but there is a second toilet further down the hallway adjacent to the laundry, cleverly hidden behind double folding doors. The colour scheme of the cottage is neutral, enhancing the space and light.

There is generous off street parking for at least two cars and there is a single garage converted to storage. A security system rounds out a very appealing package.
