On a survey strata 353m2, Kookaburra Cottage is the quintessential red brick and iron Victoria Park war service home, built circa 1925. The rising sun motif and kookaburra in the leadlights at the front entrance to this home speak of our early Australian national identity, starting at Federation in 1901 and continuing after the end of the First World War.
In 1929 the Sunday Times breathlessly reported that young William Ayling (10 years), in an accident of misadventure, survived a fall from the roof of 19 Manchester Street, and was conveyed by St John’s Ambulance to the Children’s Hospital.
In nearly a 100 years of this home has amassed a wealth of stories, and yours will be next, just steer clear of the roof!
Cleverly renovated this 2 bedroom cottage home boasts modern open plan living. The back verandah has been re-conceived as a dining room and utility space (currently used as a generous home office), and it flows easily through two pairs of French doors to the large paved undercover alfresco entertaining space. Exposed red brick and timber lining board ceilings define this unique part of the home.
The master bedroom is spacious and includes built in robes. With a leafy outlook across the elevated front verandah and the fully enclosed yard.
The second bedroom also includes built in robes for your convenience.
There are four reverse cycle split system air conditioning systems, ensuring you’ll be comfortable year-round!
Happily 19 Manchester Street features gated secure off-street parking on the red brick paved driveway, plus a single automatic lock up garage. This is a rare feature indeed to find with character homes in Victoria Park.
You’ll love relaxing in the shade in the afternoon on your front verandah. Just kick back and watch the world go by.
Location is everything and 19 Manchester ticks all the boxes. With easy walking access to park, pubs restaurants and public transport.
There are plenty of other “I wants”; NBN (FTTP – that’s the good one, and it’s got ethernet cable to the second bedroom and the TV), a second toilet, brick storeroom, polished jarrah floors, high ceilings, feature fireplace,
