Sitting on Milton Road, within walking distance of the coffee shops and vintage clothing stores of Lower Main, lies #13, a perfect example of a classic Observatory Victorian semi-detached home.
With two bedrooms, an open plan sitting room and kitchen, front and back yards, plus loads of orginal features and charm, this home is a perfect starter home for those looking to enter the property market, a lock-up-and-go for people who just love Obs, or as a source of rental income for the savvy investor.
Hidden behind a secure front wall is an enclosed front garden and veranda, just right for soaking up those late-afternoon rays with a cuppa.
The sunshine from the garden floods into the front bedroom. Both front and second bedroom are generous in proportion, with high tongue-in-groove ceilings, wooden floors and sash windows. The front bedroom has a fireplace complete with original mantle.
The sitting room and kitchen are open-plan, and the bathroom is in the back of the home, typical of Observatory houses. The tub is quaint and old-fashioned, large and deep, framed by wood and tongue-in-groove board. For the water-concious there is a shower.
Parking is available to rent within 50 m of the front door, and the Arnold Street dog park is right around the corner.
This home offers restaurants, bars and boutiques right outside the front door, balanced with quiet retreat within if that’s the the mood you are in. There is a lovely sized courtyard in the back for entertaining friends.
Easy access to City Bowl, Groote Schuur, public transport including train and the Jammie Shuttle.
