This solid period home has universal appeal with its attractive facade, good room proportions and family feel. The home is ideally suited to an older family due to the layout, and upstairs children's retreat/lounge room. Buyers should be aware that the east facing rear combined with the car accommodation and house foot print limits the natural light that flows into the home, particularly in the main living spaces. As the home is positioned on a corner, privacy concerns should be considered as the northern boundary is quite exposed to Mary Street and Cochrane Street can carry quite a bit of traffic. Overall, the home offers good accommodation size and feel in a good Brighton North location.
From a value perspective, given what has sold in Cochrane Street recently, a price in the top end of the range represents good value in my opinion.
