Generations of the same family have enjoyed the classic two-bedroom cottage at 29 Swanston St, but it is time for the next chapter with the property being listed for sale for $2.4 million to $2.6 million.

The original cottage has two bedrooms, a loungeroom, kitchen, bathroom, laundry and sunroom on 635sq m of land.
