Old Birkenhead charm by the water

Michael and Christine Holowiecki from Keeping It Realty are proud to present this historic cottage set in the heart of Birkenhead.

Be ready to be blown away by the character this home radiates and what it offers for you its new owner!

Let’s start with the fact that this is a circa 1900 cottage-style house complete with rear lane access and a gorgeously quaint verandah. It’s the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, admire the garden and watch over your very own white picket fence.

Walking straight through the front door into the cosy living space, you’ll be greeted by a fireplace mantel (with electric heater) where you can proudly show off your favourite family photos. Featuring a seamless fusion of old character and modern convenience, a flexible layout incorporates 2 generous bedrooms, one which is currently used as an extensive library, and both serviced by 1 fully revamped bathroom at the rear of the property.

Your new modern kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, sleek timber benchtops and white cabinetry is set adjacent to a delightful rear sunroom welcomed by French doors – eat in the kitchen, eat in the sunroom, the choice is yours! But what’s so great here is that there is perfect flow through to the undercover entertaining area, where you won’t have to worry if it’s raining or hailing thanks to a set of café blinds – have dinner parties or barbecues in the winter months with ease.

At the very end of the back garden, where you’ll delight in growing fresh food in your very own veggie patch, is a gazebo with gate access. Use it how you see fit, including as a potential car park spot for 1 vehicle, or turn it into a private tranquillity space – anyone for a spot of tea?

It all adds up to the irreplaceable personality of this home in a great neighbourhood.

Walk to Semaphore Beach or take a quick 5-minute drive to Largs Bay Beach or North Haven boat Ramp for a spot of fishing. Enjoy how close local restaurants, cafés and shops are including Semaphore Road, Westfield West Lakes and Port Mall Shopping Centre, and if it’s schools you’re looking for you have a choice of LeFevre Peninsula Primary, Westport Primary, Largs Bay School, West Lakes Shore R-7, Portside Christian College, LeFevre High School and Ocean View P-12 College.

Just *15.5km from the Adelaide CBD and public transport within walking distance, enjoy all this and everything else that makes this part of the world a wonderful place to live.

• 2nd bedroom adjacent to kitchen, used as an office/library
