Positioned in a tightly held pocket of Annerley, this character cottage provides an increasingly scarce opportunity to secure a renovator 6km from the CBD. Situated on an elevated 438m2 block with an exceptionally wide street frontage of 29.5 metres, the property flaunts traditional elements including VJ walls, ceilings and stained-glass windows. Currently leased to a long-term tenant at $380 per week until 11th January 2022, this is the ideal situation for the savvy investor looking to lock down a premium property that will continue to generate income.
The tidy property has had the original front verandah enclosed and turned into two sunrooms, separated by the entryway. Boasting high ceilings, sash windows and polished timber floorboards, the home offers a spacious living area that opens onto one of the sunrooms and flows through to the L-shaped kitchen with built-in pantry and gas cooking. One of the generous bedrooms features a built-in wardrobe, while the other has direct access to its own front sunroom, affording a perfect walk-in wardrobe or ensuite.
The covered back deck is privatised by latticework and lush greenery with stairs leading down to the expansive yard where there is the opportunity to extend the home. Below the property is a lock-up garage with accommodation for one car, laundry facilities and storage. Building in underneath and raising the property would afford outstanding district views, just one of many possible modifications to be made to this much-loved home.
Annerley is now considered one of Brisbane’s blue-chip suburbs, offering easy access to public transport, hospitals, schools, shops and major arterials including the M1 to the City, M7 to the Gold Coast and Clem 7 to the Brisbane Airport. Nearby schools include Yeronga State School and Yeronga State High School, Wellers Hill State School, St Elizabeth’s Primary School and Junction Park State School. Walk to local shops, parks, bikeways and cafes from this highly sought-after location, combining proximity to the bustling CBD with a relaxed, suburban lifestyle.
