Picture-book period cottage with white picket fence on the market in Braidwood

Glynis Quinlan 12 February 2018 2

There’s a certain romance about a period cottage with a white picket fence and a home to be auctioned in Braidwood lives up to the dream.

Built in 1859 – and with the original title to prove it – a renovated cottage at 63 Monkittee Street is full of ‘picture book’ rural charm while still offering all the modern conveniences needed for enjoyable living.

On top of that, the cottage sits on a double-block and comes complete with an artist studio or guest accommodation.

Scheduled to be auctioned on site at 9 am on November 11 unless sold beforehand, the Braidwood cottage is expected to sell for between $500,000 and $550,000 but is not limited to that range.

The studio or guest area.

“Some of the special features of the block include its period charm, coupled with the large garden block and the north-facing aspect,” said listing agent Kelly Allen from Luton Properties Manuka who lives and works in Braidwood.

“This home oozes period features that are highly sought after in these cottages and offers a cosy lounge room with fireplace and built-in bookshelves,” Ms Allen said.

“A sun-drenched dining room opens out to a north facing patio overlooking the level garden.

“The timber kitchen features a Rayburn oven and for everyday cooking a 900mm stainless steel gas/electric oven,” she said.

“There are three bedrooms and a renovated bathroom – plus, take a stroll down the garden to the private studio for the budding artist or guest accommodation.”

Ms Allen said that other features of the property include a double garage with extra space for a workshop, a vegetable garden, a chicken run and an old well.

Braidwood is only an hour’s drive from Canberra and the cottage is located just a short stroll from the main cafe strip.

There is an open house planned for between 12 noon and 12.30 pm today (October 14) and further open houses scheduled for various times on the next three Saturdays.

I like that they’ve used a period style for the fence pickets. No fancy acorns or clover crowns, just a simple point. I’m encouraged to do the same on mine now.

I like the butter yellow colour in this case because it complements the blue zinc colour of the corrugated iron roof.

And I particularly like the concave scalloped verandah and pergola beams.
