City-edge sanctuary. Gracing the street with a stunning period façade, a charming c1900’s worker’s cottage which stood alone when the current owners purchased in late 1995. Creating a lifetime of memories, raising three children here, they have lovingly updated the residence along the way with forethought in design and practicality that will ensure the home will grow with your family as it spans the years.

Promising year-round liveability with an inspiring blend of indoor/outdoor living throughout, the home offers an array of defined living spaces and break out zones for each member of the household to enjoy. A clever addition to the original home includes a master wing with its own ensuite, living area and sun deck; beneath it a self-contained studio with separate entry, kitchenette and ensuite with versatility to use as a teenager’s retreat, Au Pair Quarters, accommodating grandparents, or generating additional income as a private rental. Lending itself to effortless entertaining, the kitchen and dining area at the heart of the home is elegantly appointed with an adjoining alfresco deck, beckoning care-free afternoons lingering with friends and family, overseeing the kids as they take a seasonal escape to the sparkling in-ground pool. Presented with a real sense of warmth and charisma, the superb renovation incorporates the core fundamentals of a functional lifestyle residence with something special that is so often sought, but so rarely found.

Leaving little left for the heart to desire, this residence is sure to make a lasting impression with enviable city-edge living in a culturally rich enclave. Leave the car at home and explore the culinary delights of New Farm at The Balfour Kitchen, The New Farm Deli or Hellenika, indulge in boutique shopping on James Street, or a tipple to wind down after a long day at one of the precincts renowned bars. Within close reach of highly regarded public and private schools, the home so closely neighbours New Farm State School that you can watch the children as they journey to and from the grounds.

The owners have cherished this enchanting residence for many years, and as they begin a new chapter, they proudly offer this home to market, ready to be loved and admired by a new owner for many more years to come.
