Welcome to “Elizabeth Cottage”, an enchanting property with heritage significance, destined to appeal to history buffs, lovers of classic homes and anyone keen to live the inner-city lifestyle.
Former carpenter, builder and Albany councillor Henry Fairchild built the cottage in 1892 and named it and the street after his wife, who died in 1908.
He subdivided a parcel of land in this area into 42 lots, creating Alicia Street and Elizabeth Street.
This property is a legacy to his foresight and craftsmanship and a fine example of the grace bestowed on homes of its era.
Set on a low-upkeep lot in Albany’s CBD, the cottage offers a sunny aspect, with range, rural to cityscape views and has been thoughtfully refurbished throughout.
Original features include high ceilings, painted original wall and ceiling panelling and an ornate fire surround, with gas log fire in the charming lounge.
The classic entry hall flows to the elegant lounge and main bedroom, with retreat, powder room and space for robes.
Beyond is a spacious and engaging country kitchen, lovely bedroom and
light-filled, customised extension offering a wonderful area to relax or entertain. Fashionable design elements blend beautifully with the polished jarrah floors. Nearby is an in-vogue wet area, third bedroom and deck & courtyard access.
Thickened glass windows and plantation shutters provide excellent insulating and sound proofing qualities throughout the home.
The garage offers drive-thru access and there is minimal yard to worry about.
Highly recommended viewing.
