Once upon a time, this little cottage had an open front verandah with a white picket fence and blue hydrangeas growing in the front garden.
Over the years’ the cottage was changed to suit the growing demands of new families – with subsequent owners enclosing the front space and adding another lounge, lots of storage (each bedroom has masses of robe space) and situating the kitchen on an extension to overlook the magical back garden.
If you have dreamed of a simple life in Hawthorne with room for the kids or grandkids, then this cottage is for you. An easy renovation gives an additional en-suite bathroom and walk-in robe, while the more adventurous might consider lifting the entire home and creating more space underneath.
