One of just a handful of original Federation homes remaining within Hornsby's historic David Edgeworth Estate, this striking weatherboard cottage has been lovingly restored and respectfully modernised throughout. Set behind an idyllic white picket fence, step through a romantic arbour and meander amongst the layered landscaped gardens onto the bullnose veranda to admire the intricate fretwork. Inside, original timber floors are outlined by high skirting boards and classic pendant lights highlight the lofty proportions. Three bedrooms stem off the traditional hallway, an entertainer's dining room with woodburning fireplace is the heart of the home. Sympathetically extended, the spacious living room showcases a rustic exposed beam and elevated louvre windows to enhance airflow. More louvre windows feature upon the protected outdoor dining terrace. Artfully welcoming the outside in at every opportunity, each room looks out upon the surrounding greenery. Offering fabulous versatility, there is a separate artist's studio or workshop alongside the lock-up garage. Enjoy the best of both worlds, local parks and gardens are just footsteps away along with the convenience of Westfield Shopping Centre and Hornsby Train Station.
