A picket fence, a stunning Edwardian weatherboard home that looks like it has always been pampered by its owners, plus the resident chimney on the roofline; ahhh, this must be a Quarry Hill treasure.

There is loads of character packed into this exquisite early 1900s residence – it’s so good you'll never want to leave.

Think polished pine floorboards, panelled walls and doors, high ceilings, glorious open fire place complete with mantle and mirror, and period lighting - these are just some of the gorgeous features.

The interior offers three bedrooms and a separate studio/home office, with the options of a B & B perhaps, or a home and business combined - the choices are endless.

The as-new kitchen is a bright space with ample storage, gas cooktop, polished-concrete floors, stainless steel dishwasher, and an island bench adjacent to dining area. Ducted  heating and evaporative cooling are installed.

The lounge/family room has floor-to ceiling windows which frame the views to the rear courtyard garden. The L-shaped verandahs, complete with art deco trims on the fret boards and timber floors, overlook the touch of Tuscany in the cottage gardens, which offers a practical array of herbs for the resident chef.

While the home is a picture-perfect beauty, its location is your secret gold nugget. Opposite one of the best provedores in the city, a neighbourhood butcher shop, and within a short stroll to town and the railway station, this is inner city living with all the bells and whistles.
