Located a level walk to the heart of Bowral – only a block away from Corbett gardens – is this 1920s home which has been thoughtfully extended and renovated-perfectly geared for a functional and charming way of life. Features of the original period are retained; polished floorboards, high decorative ceilings and leadlight windows all of which sit harmoniously with a fabulous new family room, kitchen and two new bathrooms. The private cottage garden is beautifully established and low maintenance yet allows for entertaining with largess when desired. Stone flagging, raised vegetable beds, a garden swing (for the kid inside) birch trees and the like all add to the lovely ambience of the outside spaces. Views to the north of the Gib. from the front verandah enhance the living options and give credence to the house name from the get go!
