YOU'RE sure to be surprised by this hidden gem at 188A Keppel Street.
Tucked away, almost completely out of sight, is this two-bedroom free-standing home with a lot to offer a range of potential buyers.
The residence was renovated throughout within the last two years, giving it a modern facelift that completely maximises its modest footprint.
Recent property features:
At the very front is an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, which is bathed in sunlight each morning.
There are distinct living and dining zones, while the kitchen has been cleverly designed to dedicate as much space as possible to those areas.
Cleary Fairbrother Property co-owner Sandy Fairbrother said that this was done by repurposing the original internal laundry to be somewhat of a butler's pantry.
That space offers storage, a food preparation area, dishwasher and sink, while the oven, stovetop, refrigerator nook and breakfast bar are out in the open-plan area.
A hallway splits the living area from the bedrooms and is just another example of clever design.
It offers a European laundry that can be easily concealed, a linen cupboard and a study nook with shelving.
The two bedrooms are also of a generous size and both offer built-in-robes.
The bathroom also comes off the hallway and includes a toilet, shower and vanity.
Outdoors, you'll find an entertaining area with a L-shaped bar built-in. The current owner has it set up as a barbecue area, accompanied by a dining setting.
There is also a landscaped courtyard at the front of the property, which is fully fenced.
Among the property's other features are a single-car garage with internal access, wood heater in the living room and a split-system reverse-cycle airconditioner.
Mr Fairbrother said the property would be ideal for downsizers, an investor, or someone interested in offering short-term accommodation, given the CBD location.
He believes people won't find a home of this size that is not only Torrens Title, but offers so much.
"The attention to detail to maximise the space ... when you consider the good-sized bedrooms, a study nook, laundry and a dining area in this space, it's such a great thing," Mr Fairbrother said.

He also said that having two outdoor areas was unique for this type of home.
"In a townhouse situation, you may be lucky to get this [space] in the back, but you wouldn't get this courtyard at the front," he said.
Anyone interested in seeing it for themselves can attend the open home inspection on Saturday between 12.15pm and 12.45pm.
