Picture perfect on Durie Hill


Built in 1910 and located on beautiful Durie Hill, this delightful home offers everything you love about Victorian cottages and then some. Picture perfect from the outside, the cherry red roof, elegant fretwork and white picket fence all make this home stand out from the crowd.

The character and charm continue indoors, with native timber floors, bright, airy decor throughout and a gorgeous, renovated country-style bathroom. The long traditional hallway leads to three double bedrooms and a lovely formal lounge complete with a wood burner for those cosy winter nights. A French door allows for that all-important flow to the covered rear deck which is the perfect place for a cool drink after a hot summer day.

The cottage gardens are impeccably landscaped, with shrubs and flowers in keeping with the era of the home. The compact 496sqm (more or less) section is flat and well-fenced, a perfect place for kids and pets to play. There's a covered shed for the storage of firewood and sundry garden items. Located just 550m from popular Durie Hill School, less than 200m from the local corner store and 800m from the iconic Durie Hill tower and elevator to town, this is a desirable location for families or professionals alike.

Relocated to the site in 2006, the house was re-piled, re-plumbed and re-wired back then. Our current owners have added numerous improvements since, including insulation underfloor and in the ceiling, a new shower and toilet, polished timber floors, a high-pressure electric water cylinder, alarm system and a new roof at the front and on the front veranda. So, all the hard work is done for you. Now all you have to do is imagine yourself relaxing on that postcard-perfect verandah.

Don't just dream it, live it. Call us today.
