Home of the week: Cottage style Queanbeyan home

A beautiful renovation has preserved the historic air of this Queanbeyan home, while preparing the interior for the needs of a modern family.

Polished floors, high ceilings and period window detail preserve the atmosphere of the house, while the revamped kitchen and open-plan living space provide modern conveniences.

A generous open-plan living area sits to the rear, incorporating a spacious kitchen and lounge area, with a slightly separated dining space.

In the kitchen plentiful bench space, a double oven, gas cooktop and integrated dishwasher make for convenient meal prep.

A large backyard stretches invitingly out to the rear of the home. Established fruit trees, a vegie garden and trellis contribute a classic feel to the space, while a paved covered al fresco dining area is the perfect spot to enjoy the outdoors.

Back inside, four large bedrooms branch off the hallway. The oversized master bedroom boasts its own well-equipped en suite.

A beautiful main bathroom maintains the heritage atmosphere. The freestanding bath and classic fittings sit comfortably in the enormous space.

The home at 8 Park Street sits close to the arterial Canberra Avenue, and is walking distance from Queanbeyan's central shops.
