All I Need Is Love
Welcome to 'Nangkita', a very special and much loved property which the current owner has enjoyed for almost 50 years. It is now time to offer a new owner a challenging yet rewarding renovation project.
You are first greeted by the vibrant garden and grounds, verdant with many mature trees, plants and shrubs. Countless memories are kept within every nook of the garden, including alongside the "story telling tree" and "Katie's outside office". Now a wonderland for all ages, and one can appreciate the hard work which has gone into establishing such an environment on 1,640sqm. There is an array of different fruit trees, some of which have been espaliered. There is a sub-surface dripper system and all of the beds have been mulched. The name 'Nangkita' translates to 'the home of the little frogs'.
The circa 1925 symmetrical cottage offers olde-world character and charm, 12' ceilings, central hallway with feature archway, four original rooms and open fireplaces. The kitchen also offers original fireplace (now cupboard space) with ornate mantel surround, electric cooking facilities and a set of French doors, positioned to enjoy the morning sunshine.
The circa 1972 extension at the rear of the residence spans over two levels. The main living room is light and bright, with polished hardwood timber floors, and a peaceful elevated outlook over the garden. On the same level there is a bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The timber staircase leads down to another large living area, main bathroom, laundry plus storage room.
Certainly a home with the challenge of full renovation and rebuilding required, however given the location, garden and grounds there is true inherent value here. Here is your opportunity!
A desirable leafy location on a no-through road which accesses the Woorabinda Reserve. Walk to the main hub of Stirling for cafes, restaurants, shopping and transport.
