If you’re after a beautiful cottage with period features, fireplaces and a central location, 80 Railway Street is the place for you.

Featuring three bedrooms, this cottage is picture-perfect, with a pitched roof and white facade. Old-world charm is abundant as garden paths usher you past stone-edged garden beds towards the sunny terrace.

This character-filled home offers light and generous airy spaces, with the solitude of the nearby bush bringing a feeling of suburban peace.

Modern, clean shades of white, brushed brass round knobs and striking solid doors are some unique features of this wonderfully well-kept home.

PRD Wagga Wagga real estate agent Ryan Smith said the home had been well restored.

“It’s a cute little railway cottage that has had a really well done recent resto and repaint with a lot of its original period features intact,” he said.

A sense of nostalgia runs through the interior, with double brick walls, high ceilings, ornate cornices and glass chandelier light fittings.

The living room flows via French doors, onto the wrap-around verandah, with decorative wrought iron columns and romantic views across undulating lawns to well-maintained gardens and mature gums. Perfect for morning coffee as the sun rises or an evening drink.

The well-preserved kitchen overlooks the beautiful rear yard. A row of windows with southern views, gifts sight lines to the garden, excellent for keeping an eye on guests or kids outside.

A stone kitchen bench, lined with timber panelling, is the perfect breakfast nook and ideal for chosen vintage bar stools.

The entire home, with its neutral palette and abundant character, is ripe for personal touches. Treasured heirlooms, bold artworks or punchy touches of colour and pattern can be added to embed yourself in this cottage’s history.

Three nicely sized bedrooms, all with leafy views and original timber built-in robes, centre around a family bathroom and internal laundry.

Moving outside, there is a large yard and roofed sitting area, perfect for a barbecue in summer.

Ryan said the outdoor spaces were a great place to have a rest.

“The home’s gardens are absolutely gorgeous and with the wrap-around verandah you always have a great spot to just sit down and take in your surroundings,” he said.
