Overall Floor Area: 117m 2
Two self-contained well designed residential homes, comprising of a cottage and a modern construct.
LOCATION: Location, location, location; convenient, central, yet secure, private, quiet and elevated. It lies at the city end of Richmond Hill and is only 4 minutes walk to Patrick’s Bridge. This historical residential area is undergoing positive change with a steady number of properties being returned to their former glory and with a number of development projects in the offing. The surrounding area has become a hub of chic coffee houses and shops.
DESCRIPTION: Unusually and uniquely, we are offering two distinct and different yet connected, homes for sale, as one unit. To the front lies an elevated and west facing stone built cottage and garden, which we believe dates from 1870 to 1880. The original cottage is now one large open-plan space with a single storey and modern extension, with the other self-contained apartment located above. Both the cottage and cedar clad extension have been thoughtfully and imaginatively designed and finished to a high standard. The overall ambiance is comfortable, creative and oozing with character. The new addition is particularly light filled and we are advised that both are cost effective, in running and outlay. The large rear garden includes a patio area and leads to a substantial ‘sky’ deck giving spectacular City views, which will never disappoint.
NOTE: This will ideally suit a purchaser with specific needs. (a)Home and rental income. (b)Two separate yet attached and distinct homes.
NOTE 2: The new construct is a timber frame with high performance hemp insulation. 95% of the windows are double glazed.
