Cottage with a difference

Description

From the outside, this three bedroom cottage is quaint and inviting… but inside is so much more! Situated in a quiet semi-rural street on the outskirts of Sheffield, this property is sure to pleasantly surprise you.
Built in 1920, the home has been tastefully renovated throughout. The kitchen is functional and overlooks the spacious backyard, it also features stunning timber benchtops, quality Westinghouse appliances and stylish subway tiles. The kitchen is open plan to the dining/lounge area and this whole space is bright and airy, catching the morning sun through double glazed timber windows. Double glass doors from this area lead you onto the rear deck, the perfect spot to entertain friends or watch kids play in the backyard.
Moving through the home, there are three bedrooms with timber built-ins. The main bedroom offers a large built-in robe with sliding timber doors, a feature not often seen but a very creative design idea.
There is also a formal lounge at the front of the home with wood heater and built-in shelving, this room is currently being used as a bedroom. One of the bedrooms is currently being used as the formal dining room, so the layout with this home is definitely versatile.
The main bathroom is near new and offers a large shower, deep free-standing bath, double vanity and floor to ceiling tiles. Timber look tiles on the floor and a beautiful timber framed mirror add to this fantastic area.
Tas Oak polished timber floors run throughout the home and the timber accents throughout the home add an earthy and warm feel in every room. Several of the rooms also offer timber ceilings.
The laundry boasts custom built joinery and a large linen cupboard, again featuring those great timber doors. Off the laundry you will find what we like to call 'the secret tea room', which as the name suggests, houses a comfy couch and lends itself to an afternoon cup of tea and a book. This area could also be used as a cloak room, study, library room or whatever you need it to be!
The home is heated by a combination of 3 x thermal mass panel heaters and a wood heater, ensuring that no matter the temperature outside, the home is kept warm and cosy all year round.
The backyard is spacious, fully fenced and home to established trees and shrubs. There is a large shed adjacent to the home with a roller door and space for one car plus a workshop. There is a separate room at the rear of the shed ideal for extra storage. The block size is an impressive 1,012m2.
Overall, this house is so much more than a cottage, it is both stylish and rustic and there is just that instant feeling of home as soon as you step inside.
