Resting on a quarter acre corner block (approximately 1000m2), this superbly restored period cottage is perfectly located to promote a healthy existence. Laden with endearing original architecture, modern comforts have been thoughtfully integrated.
Corbelled arches decorate a central passage, beneath high ceilings embellished by ornate plaster roses. Intricately carved timber mantles adorn open fireplaces, some walls are wrapped with dados and floors feature wide wooden boards. A quaint cast iron combustion stove still sits in the kitchen, though now a gas stove does most of the cooking. For obvious reason, reverse cycle air conditioning and a gas heater are more recent additions.
Configure flexible floorplan to fit your family lifestyle, for instance, a preference for formal dining if no need for a 3rd bedroom. French doors lead to a private deck from what would make an ideal main bedroom. Perhaps convert study/dressing room into an ensuite or extend (STCA).
A return verandah begins its journey from protecting the facade and visitors from inclement weather. Eventually it ends in a well-sheltered and substantial broad barbeque area at the rear. Fruit trees and veggie beds defended by netting are just a few of the delights found in the charming gardens, plus a powered 6x4.5 metre shed on concrete to potter in!
Within walking distance of almost all amenities this welcoming township offers, you'll not often need your car living here. Park it in the garage and catch a train to nearby Bendigo, Echuca or Melbourne following a 5 minute stroll to the station. Only 100 metres from the cafe bakery, around the corner from IGA and much more along the main shopping strip, it's just 2 blocks from sports clubs too.
