THE STORY BEHIND THE HISTORY House - Property ID: 940630
If the original developer of this property was here today, he would surely be ecstatic to learn it has been so carefully preserved and enhanced.
Former carpenter, builder and Albany councillor Henry Fairchild built enchanting "Elizabeth Cottage" in 1892.
Mr Fairchild originally subdivided a parcel of land in this area into 42 lots, creating Alicia Street and Elizabeth Street, which he named after his wife, who died in 1908.
This home is a legacy to his workmanship and a reflection of the grace of a yesteryear.
Mr Fairchild would be no doubt chuffed to know this property now has heritage significance and is located in central Albany's historic precinct.
Whether you are a history buff, adore classic homes or want a beautiful character cottage offering potential for bed and breakfast accommodation, this property will not disappoint.
The fully-refurbished and superbly-extended 3x1.5 home stands on an easy-care 372sqm cottage lot on Albany's CBD boundary, with cafes, shops, entertainment and street events close by.
It offers a sunny north-facing aspect, pleasant views and ambiance almost impossible to replicate in new home builds.
The original section includes high ceilings, crisp white painted original wide wall and ceiling timber planking and a cosy fireplace in the enchanting lounge. Opposite is an equally elegant double bedroom with sunroom and powder room.
The central country kitchen, which flows to another bedroom, has been modernised, but remains in keeping with the original era.
The open plan extension beyond has a distinctive wow factor with premium contemporary materials and design elements melded with stunning jarrah floors. There is also an on trend wet area, third bedroom and deck.
Premium glazed windows and plantation shutters provide warmth and quiet throughout.
