Run don't walk to this picture perfect cottage, because it won't last long!
From the street, this charming property has enormous appeal, with wonderful proportions and an open front verandah. Inside, it doesn't disappoint.

Radiating off the living area are three good-sized bedrooms, all with air-conditioning. One of the bedrooms has built-in robes and the others have built-in storage.
The kitchen is at the rear of the property and is well appointed, with timber bench tops and stainless appliances, including a Miele dishwasher and oven and a Smeg gas cooktop.
The renovated bathroom is stylish and has a shower over bath and storage. The bathroom also includes under-floor heating and a heated towel rail.
Downstairs you will find undercover parking for one vehicle, with room for another car to park off-street. There is also a laundry and large, secure storage room, plus a fenced front yard.
