Character Cottage with Appealing Prospects

This character cottage sits behind a white picket fence on 411m2 in a quiet street in Bardon. It retains many quintessential original features such as VJ walls and ceilings, and attractive fretwork. The home is an exciting proposition for someone with imagination, as it has already been raised, and is therefore ready to be built in underneath and extended (STCA), with the end result a fabulous family home in a very desirable area.

Right now, the cottage is light, bright, and comfortable and is currently let for $490pw, which gives an astute purchaser rental income whilst making renovation plans. Alternatively, it constitutes a solid investment for the property investor.

Stairs to the front door lead to an enclosed front veranda, which is east-facing and captures the morning sun. This provides a warm appealing space to enjoy a sunny breakfast, or some quiet time with a good book.

Off the central hallway, there are 3 bedrooms, including a generous master bedroom. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. At the rear of the home you will find an air conditioned living room, and modern tiled kitchen with stone bench tops, dishwasher, ceramic cook top and electric oven. A clean and fresh family bathroom is conveniently located, and there is a separate spacious laundry.

The back yard provides level lawn with a low maintenance garden, and treed outlook. There is room to play, room to expand, and space for a pool if desired. The front garden is landscaped, with a pebblecrete driveway leading to duel under cover parking, and heaps of storage space.

The location is wonderful – peaceful and quiet, yet very convenient to public transport and easy access to the CBD. It is in the school catchment for the much sought after Rainworth State School and is close to many private schools. Bardon is renowned for being one of the most green and leafy suburbs in Brisbane, and there are many parks and walking tracks nearby.
