Two for one! More than you'd expect from a quaint O'Connor cottage

Buyers Price Guide: From $950,000  

History and charm only get you so far in the housing market. After the sheen wears off, what you really want is something well designed you can see yourself living and relaxing in for years to come. Luckily, 59 Miller Street is offering you both!

Set in the leafy streets and picturesque suburb of O'Connor, where the changing colours of the neighbourhood trees remind you of just how well planned this area of Canberra truly is, this single level home is hiding a delightful secret. Behind the main home which boasts freshly polished pine timber flooring and three comfortable bedrooms, a 1-bedroom, self-contained flat is revealed from a converted garage. That's right, it's history in the front, party in the back.

Craft a cosy space where your family can grow in the main house and the flat will be there to catch you when you need more. We're thinking teenager retreat, live-in grandparents, rumpus, hobby room, studio, home office, workshop it's up to you to create the space you need to suit your lifestyle and change the use of that space as your family grows. The fully self-contained and modernised 1 bedroom flat offers two living spaces, a contemporary kitchen and bathroom, plus a separate bedroom that matches the main house bedrooms in expansive built-in robe space.

The grassy rear yard basks in the sun where the light dreamily dapples through the staggering feature tree as the sun sets. But if you prefer a little extra creature comfort while outdoors, retreat down to the covered pergola – you'll still get a private and pretty view, and your weekend wine won't be in harm's way when the rainy days roll around again.

This unexpected cottage is brimming with character but isn't lacking for practicality either. Not too big and not too small. Not too old and not too new. Not like anything you've seen before, it's juuuust right.
