Weatherboard Character a Hidden Haven
This gorgeous three-bedroom haven in Mosman Park is not your average weatherboard cottage!
Set on an easy-care 420sqm block, strolling distance to both Mosman Bay and South Cottesloe Beach, this beautiful home offers the perfect blend of charming character and modern convenience.
Unlike most of its counterparts, it features a double lock-up garage at the street front, with an abundance of built-in storage. There's also a secure wrought iron entry gate with an intercom, behind which you'll find lush gardens filled with cane palms leading to the front entry.
Inside, you'll be impressed by the soaring ceilings, starting with the front lounge room - an ideal home office or second activity room for families with children/grandkids. The three generous bedrooms are all towards the front of the home, with ceiling fans, new carpets and roller blinds. The spacious main bedroom also boasts wall-to-wall built-in robes, customised with drawers, shelving and hanging space.
The family bathroom features a bath and shower, a pedestal basin and a heat lamp you'll appreciate on those chilly mornings. The jaw-dropping open plan living and dining area is where the magic happens. This massive space features gleaming original Jarrah floorboards and sky-high ceilings, surrounded by timber window frames.
The kitchen is functional and larger than expected in a classic weatherboard cottage. There's ample bench and cupboard space, a double sink, stainless steel cooking appliances and a brand new dishwasher - everything you need at your fingertips to cook for your family and guests.
Step out through French doors to the delightful alfresco deck, complete with timber balustrading and a gently raked pergola roof. You'll love entertaining out here, whether it's swimming weather or not - the refreshing sea breeze is a welcome reward on hot summer afternoons.
The pool has been renovated with fresh tiling and render, a new pump and chlorinator, and beautiful 'storm stone' paving. The vibrant lawn and gardens surrounding the pool are fully reticulated and include clumping bamboo, golden cane, monstera and viburnum. The gate at the rear of the property provides access to Ferrier Lane, a convenient shortcut through to popular Samson's Paddock and other local restaurants and shops.
A short stroll to Cottesloe and Mosman Park Primary Schools, St Hildas Anglican School and Iona Presentation College, this superb cottage will appeal to families and downsizers alike. Enjoy the best of the Swan River and the stunning coastline - all on your doorstep.
