Hackney c. 1916
Dougherty Property are proud to offer this commanding post war cottage for genuine sale by public auction. Built in 1916, "Hackney" is one of Grafton's iconic heritage residences and early records indicate that the property belonged to Arthur Landenberger, the family of which were reportedly renowned fishermen for the region at the time. Presented in outstanding order and in a prime central position, don't miss your opportunity to etch your family name to the ownership of this piece of heritage real estate.
As you would likely expect, the Federation stylings and charm of a home of this calibre have all been retained and preserved. A formal entry, soaring high 12 foot ceilings with ornate decorative plaster of the time, leadlight doors and window features, the original timber mantel fireplace in the lounge room, a projecting timber casement window with bench seat, picture rails and timber panelling and much more.
Inside has been freshly painted throughout with brand new floor coverings, light fittings, new cabinetry in the internal laundry nook and other often neglected finishing touches taken care of to ensure this family home is ready to move in and be comfortable with immediate effect. The additional effort and attention to finer details taken to transform this property is clear to see. It is impressive to say the least.
At the front of the home adjacent to the lounge room are two of the original oversized bedrooms. The third bedroom at the rear was an extension made in 1993 and benefits from a separate toilet suite, large built in robe and a private rear timber verandah.
The main bathroom is welcoming with timber panelling, decorative feature tiles, a high pitched ceiling with skylight plus a large shower recess, toilet and claw foot bath tub. The dining room showcases the original brick chimney, has polished timber floorboards and leads to the timber kitchen with dishwasher and new stove. There is access from the kitchen to the covered wrap around wide verandah which is ideal for dining outdoors. The tropical garden creates wonderful privacy and the yard is completely fenced ensuring pets or children can be secure.
For car storage, there is a colorbond steel frame shed with space for two vehicles plus a workshop room at the rear to be creative or just create mess. There is also a third roller door to allow drive through access into the yard if required.
In terms of position, 152 Queen is less than 1.5km flat fully concrete paved pathway to Grafton Mall and is conveniently set well back from the street. A council maintained public reserve with established Jacaranda trees between the front boundary and the road creates space between the property and passing traffic that is invaluable if you are sensitive to noise.
Instructions are clear, our vendors want this property sold and will consider serious offers prior to the auction. Pest and building reports are also available on request.
