This is special. Modern houses have their own style, however only very few get better with age. Welcome to Tilthams Cottage, a lovely family abode situated in a private cul-de-sac, this is one of Ascot's most recognised homes. The owners have reluctantly decided to downsize, and are keen to sell.
It's not often that you can walk through the front door of a home, and feel completely immersed in originality, timelessness and flawless space. Situated on a 792m2 block with a rare 21 metre frontage, it's important to note that this is an incredible land opportunity as well. Although the home is absolutely stunning in its own right, one can't ignore the sheer possibility of what can be done on what is essentially a blank canvas.
The original house was built in 1950, with clever extensions added in the years following. You have four bedrooms in total, with an incredible 50 square meter master retreat upstairs with marble ensuite, walk in wardrobe with study nook. You also have three and a half opulent bathrooms.
This estate was designed to reflect the relationships between structure and landscape, occupant and habitat, all showcasing a minimalist family lifestyle within an iconic postcode that is loved by Queenslanders all over. The historic and free-flowing layout warms the heart, creating awe inspiring indoor / outdoor liveability at every turn. In my view, the homes most notable feature is the outdoor living at the rear around the pool. You can look out and see everything from the kitchen, the kids can play and hang out in the Cabana / Pool house and the adults can dine and relax in the outdoor dining area on slow summer afternoons. It's perfect and it just works!
