At 165 Morrell Road sits a charming, true-blue cottage on a sprawling block with valley views, epitomising a home among the gumtrees and that quintessential Australian vibe. With room to breathe, to renovate, to extend and explore, this home is for those who appreciate their privacy and are looking to spend their evenings recharging from the city in a sun-dappled, fragrant bush setting.

The current cottage is a timber-framed weatherboard home with zincalume roof which produces that beautiful sound of pitter patter with rain. Raw Jarrah floorboards lend a rustic feel to the home, while the multitude of windows allows for gorgeous vistas from all rooms into the native bushland and across the valley. Whilst the cottage as it currently stands is two bedrooms, it would be very easy to extend the home in the same style to create a longer, larger home if required for a growing family. With such a large block there is lots of room to create your dream home, or even multiple cottages for extended families, retreats or as an Airbnb (subject to council regulations).

Spread over two levels, the ground floor hosts a petite, functional kitchen, king-size bedroom with built-in-robes, bathroom with attached laundry and large, light filled living space. A timber staircase to upstairs leads into a large open space with its own small balcony, currently used as a bedroom but with multi-functional options such as yoga, studio or rumpus room. Outdoor living is taken care of with a traditional Australian-style verandah stretching off the front of the home on the ground level, with sweeping views and enough room for a summer BBQ with friends.

The bush block is the star of this home, with native gardens requiring minimal care and plenty of room for exploring. The block is fully fenced and dog-proof, so pooches will enjoy time outside without fear of them wandering off. A large Colorbond storage shed is also onsite, handy for keeping tools and any building supplies should you choose to extend the home. If you’re looking for a tree change and have a vision, make time to see this blue cottage in the bush and let your creativity flow!
