A Cute, Cosy & Styled to Perfection 1880s Cottage
This inviting cottage, originally built in the late 1800s, offers a seamless blend of classic charm and contemporary touches. The renovation respects the home’s past while adding all the comforts of today, set against a tasteful and easy-going colour scheme echoing the pages of a Country Style magazine.
The intimate living space, complete with high ceilings, provides an elegant setting that’s just right for a cosy night spent next to the gas fire with a wine or book in hand. A modern split-system air conditioner delivers comfortable all year-round temperature. Featuring a Masterchef-style stove and an endearing Ned Kelly fireplace, the kitchen is reminiscent of a quaint Italian grandmother’s kitchen where small spaces yield hearty, flavourful meals for a few or a feast for guests. The three bedrooms serve as quiet spots to end the day, along with two bathrooms with quality finishes, including a master ensuite and the other with a standalone bath to relax and unwind.
Nestled on approximately 620 square metres, the home features a growing front garden, soon to be hidden behind a lush, private hedge. Ample on-street parking is available, with additional space behind the backyard gate. While compact in size, the rear yard is private and low-maintenance, awaiting your personal touch; whether it be custom landscaping or an added pergola. For those with visions of an expanded kitchen, conservatory, or outdoor entertaining space, there is potential for extension (STCA).
Imagine greeting the day with coffee on the porch and returning with a drink of choice at sunset, followed by leisurely walks to The Palais for live music or rejuvenating soaks at the Hepburn Bathhouse. Hints of Italy whisper through the surroundings, thanks to the nearby historic Old Macaroni Factory and the picturesque Villa Parma along Main Road.
This is a sanctuary for those craving a country tonic from a hectic city hustle. Grab a train from Southern Cross or drive just over an hour from Melbourne to be transported into this low maintenance ‘weekender’, holiday house or an incredible short-term accommodation/rental.
