Welcome to Brophy Cottage
Perfectly situated on an easy, low-maintenance corner parcel of land with two-street access, this 1928 circa cottage once owned by the Brophy family has come to the market.
Immaculate and lovingly maintained, this gorgeous cottage features a wooden interior in Queenslander style with VJ walls, breezeways above the doors, a combination of coloured and obscured glass windows, French doors, and wooden window canopies.
A light-filled welcoming entry is complemented by a bank of casement windows letting in the beautiful bay breezes whilst offering separation of two bedrooms on either side. Step into the large living room and take in the spectacle of the central light, originally from the Moreton Island Lighthouse keeper’s cottage. Traditional in design and coming off the lounge is the large master bedroom.
I love the cosy dining room that flows through to the well-appointed retro kitchen – and adjacent to that is a quaint room with louvred windows that could lend toward a Butler’s pantry or even a workspace. The renovated family bathroom and separate large laundry complete the internal package.
An established garden with a mature lilly pilly hedge and the addition of a tropical oasis of native trees and shrubs offer a haven for the local birdlife, is nicely set in the corner of the garden. With two street access in a fenced yard, there is plenty of parking space – the choice is yours.
The location is priceless, supported by a wonderful train and bus infrastructure. Just a 5 min walk to the train, and you can catch a bus that takes 20 min to Carindale shopping centre, there is no need for a car. Our owner walks everywhere, Wynnum shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, and esplanade and spends time at the wading pool, Pandanus Beach, and Wynnum jetty and loves to ride along the popular cycle routes to Wellington Point.
