CAPTAIN'S COTTAGE BY THE SEA
Don't let the title fool you - this is now a spacious home! Originally owned by a ship's captain, this home in the seaside village of Devonport was once known as 'The Captain's Cottage.' Just across the road from beautiful Cheltenham beach the owners have expanded the original brick cottage into a spacious 223m² family home on a 516m² section, using recycled native timber and an adobe finish.
The original cottage part of the house has four double bedrooms, all newly carpeted; the master bedroom has the convenience of a walk-through wardrobe that leads into a semi-ensuite bathroom. Beautiful wooden polished floors feature throughout the house, leading you to the newer part of the home, completed in 2003. Step into a modern, airy living area, which has been cleverly designed to have an open plan feel, yet each space: kitchen, dining and lounge, has been clearly defined by crafted timber steps to each level. Angled windows and a clerestory let in plenty of light. Wooden joinery and rafters complement the matai floors. A beautifully appointed kitchen with stainless steel benching leads through to the dining area and a sunny nook with built-in seating. Step down into a large newly carpeted lounge area where, with thought to giving great indoor/outdoor flow, cedar bifold doors open out into large decks and a private north-facing very sunny back garden.
The lower level has a rumpus/teenage hangout/storeroom, and a second bathroom/laundry with mosaic tile accents.
The large, private north-facing backyard gets amazing sun. The 1.5 car garage has internal access, with a workshop at the back. Plenty of off-street parking for 3 cars.
Literally steps to Cheltenham Beach and the famous Chateaubriant cafe, easy access to public transport and close to excellent schools, this is in an absolute prime location in sought-after Devonport
