Privileged Battery Point living
Locality and convenience are at the fore in this prized 1914 character cottage in mainstream Battery Point. The only time you will get closer to the river is when launching your craft as the residence sits nicely back off the quiet thoroughfare that runs to water's edge.
This is privileged Battery Point as your front entrance acts as an extended driveway that slopes gently to the waves lapping at a small reserve and jetty to host a range of marine activity. Back at the house, a cottage facade with wrap verandah with elaborate timber decoration sets the scene for a valued front lawn that provides a serene launch pad for spectating river activity and entertaining.
The space and size of the dwelling and surrounds is one to truly entice with 645m2 on a large and sheltered block for inner city blue chip location. These desirables are hosted favourable through sheltered nooks and courtyard to appreciate seclusion from the neighbourhood that sprawls beyond your established shrubbery and border. A gated fence extends your perimeter to a sizable reserve over your back fence.
Inside, the residence backs up the class and fortune of its exteriors with original remnants held in high regard and restored to their former glory. Original Baltic floorboards roam throughout the house supported by iconic timber detail, exquisite fireplaces, picture rails and an arch that sets the standard the moment you enter the house.
Owners have taken their hand to gently transition the property into modern living opening up space and light whilst maintaining the character features that continue to enchant and charm. The main living with classic broad full-length windows dictates the mood as it extends towards dining and the kitchen, connecting nicely and finishing with bay windows in a complete dominance of natural light.
The hallway with its high ceilings and centerpiece arch guides towards two bedrooms or one master with additional living or study. Each possesses grand space and light with the master spilling into a radiant sunroom via French doors with separate entry off the main verandah. Working fireplaces and restoration of original floorboards and windows provide elegance and style.
A compact laundry and modern bathroom with corner shower, bath and vanity have tastefully been brought into the modern era with decor and convenience. Under house storage or cellar opportunities round out a very alluring proposition.
The residence is not heritage listed and a height covenant on the property in front delivers exclusivity and guarantees that your waterfront view will remain as long as you are the proud homeowner.
So if you have been seeking Battery Point convenience with space and style to truly kick into the leisurely lifestyle then this elegant and charming 1900s aims to satisfy on every level.
