Call for your private inspection!
A cottage is usually considered a modest, often cosy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location.
So, it’s quite rare to discover such a coveted abode in the auspices of Brisbane’s Western suburbs, unless you’re savvy enough to follow property listings in The Gap. Because one exists, and only one, and it’s neatly tucked away at 27 Nargong Street, with a beautifully brick-paved front courtyard and entrance.
The adage “looks can be deceiving” most definitely applies here as what awaits you behind the gated passage of this charming cottage-like home, spread amongst 642m2, is only appreciated once you step inside. There’s a charming, front half-door at the southern entrance which houses the laundry and a combined shower and bath, toilet and sink with floors tiled in a whimsical and classic black and white pattern that are consistent with the era of the home.
A quick step up puts you into a remodelled kitchen that’s teeming with Caesarstone bench tops, a Bosch oven, range, dishwasher, rangehood; Fisher & Paykel fridge and Sharp Carousel microwave oven – it’s neat, complete and ready to prepare whatever you desire to cook, plate and eat. There’s even a walk-in pantry to store your horde of herbs and spices, a split-system AC unit to keep it cool in the kitchen when the temps turn up, and plenty of cabinet space for storing everything else. There’s also room in the kitchen for a casual dining table that’s embellished by a unique stained-glass ceiling feature of roses and hearts, and which captures the essence of the cottage cuteness.
The remainder of this quaint homestead is divided amongst 2 bedrooms with ceiling fan and split-system AC unit, a room suited either for study or play, a formal dining room, a living room with another AC unit and hardwood Iron Bark flooring that runs through the majority of this majestic home. The Master Bedroom is carpeted and has a grey slate tiled ensuite that encompasses a shower, toilet and sink. Both the living room and Master Bedroom have access to a recently refurbished, covered deck that’s a spectacular outdoor feature of the east-facing home, while the Master Bedroom also overlooks the expansive backyard.
Mature, shady trees rise above a lush lawn at the rear of the property that’s completely fenced and fitted with a garden shed and a concrete table and stools, situated in a purpose-built area that’s peaceful and calm. A rainwater tank provides an extra element of irrigation to keep everything green and great, and there’s also plenty of storage space beneath the home to keep the essentials of lawn care or otherwise safe and secure.
What we think you’ll love most about 27 Nargong Street, apart from its cottage class, is the chance to bask in a unique property that beckons a continuation of its current, renovated theme, or your opportunity to enhance it. Either way, it’s a rare opportunity to secure a residence that doesn’t arise with regularity.
