Like the busy executives or city-dwellers with regular orders at their local on Hutt Street will tell you; this historic pocket equals lifestyle, character and convenience with the green-belt tranquility of the South Park Lands nearby.
Add the bluestone-smothered street appeal of your C.1880 Cottage on a near corner allotment (adjoining Kate Court) and this charming two-bedroom city pad becomes extra sweet.
Firstly, it's Torrens Titled and exclusively yours, with no stairs impacting the elderly.
Secondly, it makes perfect sense as a lock-and-go lodging when the city calls.
And thirdly, it's whisper quiet.
For a buy now, lease out scenario, it's beautifully preserved leaving you to dangle that designer notion of renovating for self-satisfaction later (STCC).
Once inside, the central hallway steers you to two carpeted bedrooms where a wall niche, ceiling roses, character fireplaces and 3.6m (approx.) ceilings honour the grandeur of another time, and Baltic boards lie below.
If only these stone walls could talk.
As the hallway ends, living begins. Polished boards float through the living room heart of the home with feature skylight and fireplace. Sharing a warm yet open feel, you'll never miss a kitchen conversation…
While the eat-in timber kitchen keeps to its character (excluding its stainless additions) you'll barely boil a kettle in this cultural locale.
As the spacious, modern bathroom/laundry combination mixes character and chic to the rear.
If entertaining is on your mind, your quaint rear paved patio provides an ambience all its own, calling only for draped party lights in the driveway for instant patio appeal.
A sprinkling of border plants and your irrigated garden is done. And behold your own great wall - thanks to your rear neighbours – that craves nothing but a Tromp L'oeil or a creeping vine, offering security without denying you natural light.
Foodies, be instantly gratified – from pub fare to laksa, tapas to organic pizza; Hutt street delivers (or at least UberEATS will).
So, shy away from high-rise. Try the tree-lined south-eastern edge for a walk on the charming side…
