A charming place to call home


Lazy summer days on the veranda with the scent of greenery and wisteria and the chatter of birds awaits the next owner of this piece of Russell Street history, an utterly charming three-bedroom cottage.

You'll find Number 12 tucked away in its private garden at the top of the path, through an arch of wisteria There's parking in the single garage below and a generous section of 837sqm. With three-bedrooms, an updated kitchen, an artist's garden studio and a lounge with French doors opening to a veranda wrapping around two sides of the house, there's real romance about this 1888-built home and its setting. From the veranda with its clearlite sections for more light, you'll enjoy a peaceful, elevated outlook, sheltered from winds. Morning sun pours in. Native timber floors with their century-old warm patina and a lovely living room mantlepiece are highlights and many doors are believed to be originals. High ceilings and airy rooms are a delight and there've been additions and remodelling over the years.

The two front bedrooms, with hillside lookouts through the sash windows, are spacious doubles; the master with a built-in double wardrobe. The third bedroom will also accommodate a double bed and has a single wardrobe. A lounge heat pump provides warmth and cooling or stay cosy with a gorgeous wood burner in the cooler seasons. Classic vintage-style curtains evoke the finery of the home's era as well as light fittings that will start a conversation. Light pours into the kitchen which is nicely updated with ceramic cooktop, dishwasher and deep sink and with timber bench tops in keeping with the home's character. There's a separate shower, separate toilet and another room with a deep French bath. Gates secure the section around the house where there's flat lawn, a cosy courtyard area, garden shed and a profusion of greenery and colour from roses, agapanthus, wisteria, ferns and other natives and lemons and peaches for drinks and dessert.
