Cottage In The Hills
This delightful 1904 cottage has been fully renovated within the last two years. It includes an upstairs bedroom and ensuite with bath, complete with living and study, north facing balcony looking through large gum trees and cathedral ceilings with lots of light coming in.
Downstairs has a cosy lounge area and iron fire place. There is a second bedroom with ensuite and another larger and smaller bedrooms with a third separate bathroom. However, it is a cosy cottage and lends itself to no more than three/four people. Not really for a big family.
Then a tidy but spacious jarrah topped kitchen with walk in pantry, alongside a windowed dining area, complete with potbelly. The large stovetop is gas cooking with two electric ovens. There is plenty of cupboard space with large pull-out draws for pots pans etc.
A separate laundry with bathroom and more cupboard space with both a dryer and the same jarrah tops. Both levels have reverse cycle split system air conditioning with ceiling fans on the top level.
There is an 8kw solar generator, complete with top of the range stainless steel "Solar Edwards" hot water unit. An emergency LED lighting system on both levels if power should go down.
Garden is full of fruit trees, such as avocado, orange, apple, plum, fig, grapefruit, vines, berries, olive, almond etc, including five raised garden beds for veggies and green house, all on reticulation. There are also 6 separate rainwater tanks on close to under an acre of land.
Not forgetting the old, yet renovated timber/iron shed/ workshop, including a separate double carport.
There is also a walking /bridal track with creek in front of home, as the home faces away from the road towards the creek, overlooking a nature reserve.
The last vacant block in the area is next door, just sold for $360,000, but this home alone - the dwelling with all the external works etc could not be replace for less than $500,000 according to the current owner, who is now a retired builder.
There is nothing to spend then, or yet to take the chance of those expensive renovations against another property of a lesser value. Just water the garden and live.
