Ideally located within Wagga’s medical precinct is this pretty, four-bedroom cottage. An empathetic and stylish renovation has completed the home for modern family life while affectionately respecting its heritage roots. Subtle neutral colours marry with the original timber flooring and windows.
At 114 Docker Street is a meticulously restored red-brick house enhanced by a gorgeous palette of new plantings. A considered extension to the rear has created a luxurious parental wing, cleverly configured to include a world-class kitchen and living space while maximising the home’s comfort and versatility.
PRD Wagga Wagga real estate agent Ryan Smith said no expense had been spared in the renovation.
“It’s a red-brick cottage that’s nearly 100 years old and the recent renovations have been very sympathetic to its history and character,” he said.
“They’ve done well to bring an amazing older home into 2023 respectfully.”
The kitchen, dining and living area is open, airy and sunlit with bi-fold doors opening to a deck equipped with an outdoor kitchen. Ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling throughout and large picture windows frame northern views to perimeter trees. Plantation shutters filter light, and screen the comings and goings of the street.
The kitchen features large stone countertops, two-pac cabinetry and ample storage, with a walk-in pantry. Think easy meals with lots of room for family communion around the dining table. A large splashback window brings in natural light.
A front courtyard gifts peaceful glimpses of verdant surroundings. This is a gorgeous nook for morning coffee and is a blissful stage of an evening.
Ryan said the size of the home was fantastic.
“The groups who have been through the home have been quick to comment on the impressive size of the home and how open it feels.”
Three spacious bedrooms have built-in robes and leafy aspects. The family bathroom oozes retreat vibes, with a step-in shower and tub. The back of the house enjoys a peaceful master bedroom and ensuite, and built-in cabinetry provides seamless storage.
The private backyard is a perfect haven for kids to play or chooks to roam as you entertain friends and family while overlooking the sparkling inground swimming pool. Rear-lane access flows to a shed, triple car accommodation plus space for a gym, workshop and shelving.
