The home at 57 Kadumba St, Yeronga is on the marketA CHARACTER cottage with swimming pool is new to the market in Yeronga. Cate Spence bought the property at 57 Kadumba St 11 years ago after falling in love with the VJ walls, high ceilings and “beautiful” fretwork. “I just love old Queenslanders and homes with character,” she said. In the time she has owned the property, Ms Spence has renovated the bathrooms, removed a wall between the kitchen and lounge room, revamped the kitchen and repainted the home, all while retaining the heritage charm. The kitchen opens to the living area.“I also added a deck out the back and removed all the palm trees that were in the yard and replaced them with natives,” she said.
