A raised timber veranda overlooking lush gardens fronts this charming hills’ cottage at 255 Canning Road, the very picture of Instagram influencers cottage-core dreams. With trademark elements such as Jarrah floorboards and spacious high ceilings, this home is sure to delight artists and enthusiasts alike with its original features. Renovated with an eye to mixing modern design and original values, this is a home sure to please those looking for a country cottage aesthetic.

Stepping through the custom leadlight window door, a central corridor dominates the home front to back, excellent for airflow with a summer breeze. At the front of the home are two good-sized bedrooms which could accommodate king sized beds, one room has a large ceiling rose and both overlook the front veranda into the private front garden. Towards the rear of the home is the kitchen, open plan living/dining room and bathroom, a classic layout for cottages of this era.

The kitchen has been renovated with classic white subway tiles and neutral colours. Westinghouse electric cooktop and oven are reliable, while a space has been incorporated for a dishwasher should you need one. Sitting pretty in the original fireplace is an iron potbelly with decorative doors – perfect for creating a crackling fire in winter to sit in front of with a cup of tea. The bathroom has also been renovated to a fresh modern standard, with polished concrete-look tiles, solid timber vanity bench and beautiful custom leadlight window. The living and dining room have been combined to form an open plan room, with a reverse cycle air conditioning unit for hot summer days. Cedar sliding doors lead out onto the paved back patio with gabled tin roof and roll-down clear café blinds, making the space friendly for both summer and winter entertaining.

The backyard is currently a blank canvas, perfect to either leave as a bush-style block or ready to be transformed by your vision. With potential access from Lawnbrook Road, a large rear access shed could be considered, or a thriving market garden, or manicured lawns under a gorgeous central Wandoo tree, the options are endless for those with a bit of imagination. The front garden is watered through a grey water system and features lots of luscious foliage creating a private oasis. Come for the character features and stay for the vibe, this home has its very own brand of quirky cottage magic.
