A perfectly placed character cottage with a special exclamation mark

Sold at Auction

What is a quaint bluestone cottage on first impression will leave you head over heels for its rear ultra-modern extension that was created by Rad Studio architects, short listed for an award and makes clever use of every square inch with precision. The stark contrast between the beautifully preserved two-bedroom original home and an addition that centres around an ingenious courtyard is something to savour.

A series of trifold doors disappear into the striking black cubes that also double up as storage and make the courtyard a functioning part of the internal footprint – in the process sending light and fresh air to the galley kitchen and the two living zones that bookend it. And it’s a beautiful thing.

Quiet yet so conveniently placed on the cusp of revitalised Hutt Street, life’s beautiful when the likes of Ballaboosta, Biga, Coffylosophy, Mascavado, The Havelock Hotel and a series of restaurants that can take you on a journey around the world are all yours, just a short stroll from the boundless Victoria Park. Perfect.
