Carrington Cottage is a Real Surprise Package


Auction Location: On location auction – 79 Gipps Street, Carrington

A real surprise behind its cottage façade, this renovated home's appeal begins with its Gipps Street address, which is loved for its wide boulevard lined with Canary Island palms, and footsteps proximity to the water.

Inside, the home's generous footprint seems to defy logic featuring separate lounge and dining rooms, a contemporary kitchen and full size bathroom, and two robed bedrooms on ground floor with two additional loft bedrooms upstairs (NB. Ceiling height 2.1m)
New timber floors, new wiring, and louvre windows that bring in beautiful cross-ventilation, along with air-conditioning, gas heating and a study nook are just some of this home's fabulous features. A cleverly conceived alfresco entertaining area is wonderfully private, surprisingly spacious, and low maintenance, whilst at the same time offering versatility to park your car off-street. Add the finishing touches to the handy extra toilet outdoors and you have a brilliantly renovated home with a touch of quirky charm in a location that's a standout.

Just across the road, find Grahame Park playground where the littles will love to run around. Wander round the corner and jump onto the Throsby walking and cycle path offering a pleasant waterside stroll or bike ride all the way to Nobbys Beach. On the way you can stop off for coffee or dining at the Boatshed Café, Newcastle Yacht Club or any number of eateries and bars at Honeysuckle. Your dog can run around at the off-leash park, and if a bit of water fun is your thing, launch the paddleboard with ease or join Newcastle Rowing Club, which is little more than a few strides away.
