1880's Cottage To Modern Sophistication!
Situated in a quiet street on the fringe of the CBD, it's hard to believe this high set character cottage is so close to the city's key attractions. A short walk in any direction will bring you to the 'eat street', the CBD, the Seaport, and the Gorge, as well as parks, schools, supermarkets, a childcare centre and the LGH. First built in 1880, each subsequent owner has added their own touch while still maintaining the original features and character that makes the home so charming. The current owners have renovated extensively and created a modern masterpiece.
From the smartly tiled front entry you enter the light filled open plan living areas with the kitchen at one end with it's huge bench top built around the original brick fireplace. The original hardwood timber flooring is showcased in this and the dining area.
The dining area is spacious enough to fit a large entertaining sized table in style, while the lounge oozes relaxing comfort with carpet and heat pump for warmth. From here through a set of French doors is an expansive enclosed verandah at the front of the property. Here is the all year round spot for a G&T, a morning coffee or a family BBQ. Two bedrooms are on the upper level, the main boasting a walk in robe and a two way 'ensuite'. This luxurious bathroom is equipped with a free standing bath, double vanity an over-sized walk-in shower, the toilet is separate, and the clever laundry is tucked in here just off the kitchen and back area. There is easy access to the clothesline in the enclosed fully under cover utility/courtyard area. A Tasmanian Oak loft bed in the second bedroom maximizes space and enables the room to be utilized as both a bedroom and a study. A staircase off the living area leads down to a wine cellar/storeroom and a double sized bedroom. With it's own external access, the bedroom would ideally suit a home-based business, teenage retreat or an Air BNB opportunity.
Outside, a large veggie patch with watering system extends down one side of the home. Garaging is a solid brick carport affording off-street parking for two vehicles. With delightful landscaping and surrounding established trees, this home is one you could be proud of. Why not embrace the city lifestyle Alice Place has to offer?
