A marriage of old and newBack
This charming cottage in the sought-after Kingston heritage precinct has been “sympathetically extended to seamlessly combine the old with the new”, according to Cream Residential principal, Chris Wilson.
53 Leichhardt Street is home to a three-bedroom residence that’s bursting with nods to the home’s heritage, such as picture rails and fireplaces, as well as modern creature comforts like double glazing in the extension and ducted gas heating in the original part of the home.
Wilson says this would be the perfect new home for anyone who is “after a central location, close to restaurants and the Kingston waterfront, but not wanting body corporate”.
The home sits opposite Kingston Oval, and close to shops at ‘old Kingston’ and the Kingston Foreshore.
“[The home is] close to the Parliamentary Triangle, Manuka, and access roads to the City,” Wilson says, as well as “well-regarded public and private schools”.
The home features solid timber flooring throughout, as well as plantation timber shutters, ceiling fans and built-in robes in the main bedroom. The modern bathroom boasts feature tiles and ample storage, while the kitchen features stone benchtops, integrated dishwasher and a servery window to the family room.
The cottage is nestled amongst gardens with sleeper-lined pathways and garden beds. A separate studio attached to the garage provides a flexible option, and can be used for a number of different purposes depending on your family’s needs.
