A Modern Day Miners’ Cottage
27 Jun, 2019
Simple, stylish and wonderfully designed, this Wandin North granny flat has a whole lot to offer, without taking up a whole lot of space. The Yarra Cottage is all about practical design and is styled after a traditional miners’ cottage, with a simple floor plan and quaint exterior. It fits in so well with its’ Wandin North location (a township in the beautiful Yarra Valley located 40km east of Melbourne’s CBD), surrounded by rolling hills and tree-lined horizons; the owner will be able to enjoy an enviable view from their front decking.
The interior of the Yarra Cottage maintains an open plan style for the kitchen and living spaces, with a classic U-shaped kitchen lay-out and large windows which allow plenty of natural light to fill the space, bringing a bright, open atmosphere into the home.
The decorative turned-post and balustrade creates the impression of an entry-way and acts as an attractive division from the living room.
The kitchen itself is modern, sleek and functional. Providing ample bench-space and storage, styled in a timeless white with black accents, this kitchen keeps in line with the granny flats’ modest style, while also serving as a stand out feature.
A functional, stylish work-space that delivers on all the modern convenience, with high quality appliances (oven and ceramic cooktop) included and a timeless colour selection.
The stylish high-gloss finish on the bench tops and cabinetry are attractive, easy to clean and react beautifully with the natural light.
Arguably the crown jewel of the Yarra Cottage is the spacious bathroom. Easily accessible, the bathroom is located off the bedroom in an en-suite style. The Yarra Cottages’ bathroom offers privacy and convenience. Large enough to easily maneuver a mobility aid in and with the added safety features of a grab rail, flick mixer taps and a hand shower on rail; this bathroom offers convenience and comfort for those with restricted mobility who wish to retain their privacy and independence in their day-to-day lives.
With a width of 1500mm, a low lip base and fiberglass shell, our showers are specifically designed to accommodate wheelchairs, commodes/shower chairs and other forms of mobility devices. With a wide range of added safety features to choose from, such as grab rails and flick mixer taps, you can customise our bathrooms to suit your level of assistance needs.
Another fantastic feature of the Yarra Cottage granny flat is the spacious walk-in-robe, fitted with a three-shelf storage compartment, ample hanging space and over-shelf storage.
With its’ intelligent use of space and simple design, the Yarra Cottage is the top contender for those who are looking for a 1 bedroom granny flat option.
