Stepping into this picture-perfect garden cottage feels like wandering into a home from the pages of a storybook.

61 Best Street is a meticulously refurbished red brick residence enhanced by a gorgeous palette of new plantings.

The four-bedroom cottage is in the heart of Wagga’s CBD.

A stylish renovation has updated the home for modern family life while respecting its heritage roots. Subtle neutral colours marry with the beautiful timber flooring and windows.

PRD sales assistant Bee Anderson said the best features of the home were the natural lighting and the location.

“It’s light-filled and you can’t go past Best Street,” Bee said.

“We’ve had private appointments and the prospective buyers were impressed by the incredible renovations, the granny flat and the use of the backyard.”

The front courtyard offers peaceful glimpses of verdant green and there is a gorgeous nook under the bullnose verandah for morning coffee or an evening glass or two.

“You walk into a big hallway and have three generous bedrooms to the front of the home,” Bee said.

“The master comes with a huge walk-in robe and an ensuite.”

The open kitchen, dining and living areas are airy and sunlit and merge via stacker doors to a sun-dappled deck that overlooks the inground swimming pool.

“Walking down the hallway and to the left are windows and they show a beautiful, landscaped garden to the side,” Bee said.

“There is a bit of greenery when you’re walking down into the main living space.

“From the living space and the kitchen, you’re greeted with big glass sliding doors that open out to the undercover pool.”

The kitchen is well appointed, with generous stone countertops, two-pack cabinetry and ample storage – think easy meals with lots of room for family communion around the dining table.

The private rear yard is a perfect spot for kids to play in and chooks to roam while you entertain with friends and family while overlooking the sparkling inground swimming pool.

Rear lane access flows to a shed, double car accommodation, plus extra space for storage, a workshop, and shelving.

The jewel in the crown is the fully council-compliant one-bedroom granny flat above the garage – a perfect opportunity to lease out and make some extra money or use as a place for guests to stay or as a space for adult children.

“It’s fully self-contained with a kitchen and bathroom,” Bee said. “With rear lane access, you won’t even notice people coming and going.”

Throughout the property, there’s ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling.

Bee said the property would suit a family, a professional, professional couples and anyone who worked in the Wagga CBD.

“It is very easy maintenance,” she said.

61 Best Street Wagga Wagga has an inspection scheduled for Saturday 3 February, from 10 to 10:30 am.
