About Andrew Preston
We renovated our 100 year old timber house in 2002 and have lived in it for the past 12 years (except during the construction period). The reason we are renting out the house is because we have moved ourselves (temporarily) to the North Coast to support a family friend that has breast cancer and to take the opportunity to live close to the beach.
Andrew Preston purchased this cottage in 2001
Why Andrew Preston chose Leichhardt
The reason we purchased this property is because of the size of the land, which is quite large for an inner city dwelling and that it is a weatherboard house that was in need of quite a bit of work. The house had been in the same family for approximately 70 years and only one other prior to that.
We designed the extension and did the renovations ourselves with the help of our team of tradespeople as well. I was running my recruiting company from home during the evening and working on the house during the day. I can remember one afternoon, the tarp I'd purchased to cover the top floor was a bit short on the sides, when it started to rain heavily and started leaking I had to cover the office equipment and myself in clear plastic so I could stay dry and continue to work. Joys of renovating.
What makes this cottage unique
The house has very high ceilings, 3.2 meters, which gives it a very open feeling. The rear bi-folding doors open onto a grassed back yard, the coral bark maples and little gems making for a outdoor indoor area. The house has a good feeling about it and is very easy to live in.
