Devotees of homewares store One Small Room on Queen Street's edgy lifestyle strip will feel immediately at home in this exquisitely updated symmetrical cottage located in a postcard-worthy, Jacaranda-lined street and set on a divinely landscaped 700m² allotment approx. The gardens are quite stunning and lend a calming privacy to the C1915 house and contemporary air-conditioned studio designed by Timothy Cichero of OSR. With a scaled-up footprint of 54m², it's the ideal space from which to run a home-based business or ready to turn into a luxurious granny flat, subject to the necessary approvals.

To say this property is fantastic is an understatement but one this home is happy to wear thanks to its calm, laid-back vibe, amazing versatility and confidence in a thorough renovation, stylishly executed. Nothing beats the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all the big ticket items have been taken care of; we're talking new wiring, new ceilings and decorative plasterwork, new kitchen, new bathroom, new deck, new gutters and all within the last five years.

There really is nothing for you to do but move in and enjoy the polished timber floors and light-filled flexibility afforded by the three double bedrooms, the larger bathroom with super-sized shower and freestanding bathtub; the generous living area and the adjoining kitchen-meals where the pleasures of cooking in a fresh white kitchen with solid timber bench tops and modern appliances are matched only by those dreamy backyard views.

With custom glass sliders to take you seamlessly from indoors to out, nights of summer fun will start out on the terrace amidst organic landscaping or on the elevated deck, covered for all-weather enjoyment and featuring handy access to a second toilet in the laundry. Winter entertaining will likely play out in front of the living room's open fire; an ice-breaker in every sense and one of a trio of stunning fireplaces crafted by the cousin of the first owner - a cooper by trade.

As for the location, what's not to love when you can stroll to artisan cafes, shops and providores, jump on a train to the city and be part of a friendly community where eclecticism is celebrated and neighbours greet each other by name?
