Say “Hi” to a bluestone cottage renewal with an eco-friendly footprint… Contact the agent for an Inspection By Appointment.

In this quiet urban lane lies a sustainable secret-an 1880s 2-bed cottage that’s bettered its bluestone beginnings with an eco-friendly finale of rammed earth, recycled timber, and solar passive design…

Yet, there’s so much more to its architectural renewal than meets the eye.
The first is, you can buy next door as well. Namely #4, its 4-bed “Sustainable Homes” qualified big sister.
While preserving their local heritage importance, each airtight Torrens titled cottage allows light to permeate via louvred glass and north-facing double glazing, with cross-ventilation and heat transfer key attributes to each cool cottage rewrite.

Inside #6, clever on-line buys and recycled materials add a whimsical array of texture and fixtures inspiring a home with quirk, style, and heaps of storage – opening first to timber floors, a quaint living room/playroom/ potential 3rd bedroom with a fireplace and a ground floor bedroom with built-in robes.

Next, a bathroom featuring a new pedestal vanity, a huge shower, and its original 1880’s claw foot bath – recycled chic at its finest against a Euro-style laundry.

And where eco-design lives, is in the 2-level open plan living inviting the galley-style kitchen into play with its wood combustion fireplace with heat transfer capability.

Upstairs where a robed master leads with a mezzanine home office and ends with a brand new ensuite.
While living and dining converge below, sky-high glazing welcomes free sunlight, cedar and glass doors reveal a polished concrete rear patio – conserving more daylight warmth – and creeping vines above temper the summer and winter sun. Completing its courtyard surrounds is a slimline shed tucking tools away beyond a paved play space and a fence line of citrus stone fruit and vegetables.
Of immeasurable value in Norwood is the secure carport plus workshop.

The low down? There’s little upkeep. Quirk? There’s plenty. Norwood’s heart? You’re in it.
