The Original Cottage , West End
This 140 year old cottage, built prior to 1879, has only ever been owned by two families and is now being offered for sale again after 73 years.
Being the 1st home to be built in Skinner Street ensured No. 7 secured the prime hilltop position taking in views and catching all the breezes.
The magnificent elevated 526m2 allotment that is approximately 11.6m X 45m offers a rear north aspect to the city. The land at the rear of the allotment provides the opportunity for an in-ground pool, barbeque / entertainment area or a large child friendly play area.
The low-set unrenovated cottage offers a blank canvas with multiple options for the new owner:
(1) Simply renovate,
(2) Raise, renovate and build under,
(3) Renovate and extend the rear,
(4) CR2 Zoning allows to build a detached granny flat at the rear of the property
(Subject to Council Approval).
Currently the floor plan allows for 4 bedrooms, a louvered enclosed front verandah, an eat-in kitchen, a living room, the laundry and a separate bathroom with an adjoining toilet.
Some of the old character features that include pressed metal ceilings, double hung windows and hardwood timber floors can found throughout the home.
Good driveway access beside the cottage provides for multiple off street parking and
the large free-standing garage offers car accommodation and great storage space.
Skinner Street is in a sought after central location with restaurants, shops and transport just around the corner whilst the Davies Park Markets is only a short walk away.
You can also walk down the road to the West End State School and a little further to the Brisbane State High School.
St.Laurence’s College, Somerville House, Southbank Tafe, QUT and the University of Queensland are also easily accessible as is Southbank Parklands and the CBD.
