Paddington Cottage with Fabulous Potential

This largely original workers cottage located in a prestigious street offers an exciting opportunity for transformation into a fabulous home. There are spectacular views of the city from the rear, and Paddington district views from the front.

This property has a very important advantage not often found in hilly suburbs like Paddington; it is situated on a high, yet level section of Great George Street, with a wide 13m frontage. Accessibility is therefore excellent, both whilst renovations are conducted, and afterwards. Current BCC zoning is QPP-CR2 Character (infill housing) zone (previously Residential B R3).

Sixty-four years ago, an Italian family who had recently immigrated to Australia moved into this workers cottage, and the same family has enjoyed living there until today. Now is the time for a new owner to transform this humble cottage into a fabulous contemporary home.

This very desirable property offers many original features, including VJ lining boards, timber floorboards, and high ceilings (2.85m). It currently consists of 3-4 bedrooms, living and dining rooms, and multi-purpose rooms downstairs. The allotment is a generous 569sqm, and slopes gently away from the street. It has a large, useable back yard, and a double garage. The easterly orientation of the cottage also means that it catches the breezes, so important for comfortable living in Brisbane.

Living in Paddington is all about lifestyle, and convenience. This eclectic suburb is exciting and stimulating, making it one of the most sought-after inner-urban areas to live in Brisbane. There are multiple cafes, restaurants and interesting shops within walking distance from the front door. The Ithaca Pool and Lang Park are also close and convenient. In addition, you will be living only 3kms from the City and from South Bank.
