Within strolling distance of everything the heart of Bendigo offers, living on the edge takes on a whole new meaning at this city-fringe address. Anticipating enthusiastic efforts of new owners to fully revive its undeniable charm, this quaint cottage has retained much of its original architecture, providing the perfect base from whence to begin restoration.Picket fence with arbour, symmetrical facade sheltered by a verandah and window canopies over side windows adorn the exterior of the property. Beyond the entrance, a central hallway, high ceilings, some painted timber, floorboards to polish, sash windows and wooden dados are found inside. Back to back fireplaces now host a gas space heater in a bedroom and a cosy gas log fire in the living room. These join a reverse cycle split system, electric panel heating and ceiling fans to supply a range of climate control options. More modern conveniences include gas cooktop and wall oven in a spacious kitchen-meals area. All 3 bedrooms are surprisingly large for a cottage, serviced by a timber-lined bathroom and separate toilet accessed via the laundry. A multi-purpose 5.8x5.8 metre bungalow sits behind the house, built on a concrete floor and with power connected. Able to be used as massive rumpus room, teen's digs, home business base or huge studio. Needing some revitalising, a sundeck sits alongside extensive paving, so there is ample space for placement of outdoor furniture. Plenty of side yard left over may possess sub-division potential too (STCA, of course). Arts precinct, several primary schools, secondary colleges, Queen Elizabeth Oval, restaurants, CBD, aquatic and leisure centres and the new hospital all are within a 1.5 kilometre radius! Though TLC is dearly required to some aspects of this property, this is a terrific opportunity to seize a slice of a city-side lifestyle that will even save you the cost of petrol and parking!
