Victorian Cottage On One Acre

Nestled into the hillside overlooking the picturesque township of Coleraine, is the opportunity to buy a restored Victorian Cottage in a generous 4,000 square metre allotment with fencing and interesting landscaping, lending itself to future gardens of lavender with established trees and many species of bird life to discover.

The home is built form weatherboard construction with colourbond roofing in excellent condition with original windows and doors all in good order. The home has a traditional floor plan with central passage, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and four bedrooms.

The bedrooms are two double and two singles, the high ceilings and Baltic pine lining boards make it easy to convert the two smaller bedrooms into one; creating a dining room, and by adding an external door enabling access to the West side entertaining area, which is covered and well equipped with power, benches and sink allowing meals to be prepared outside. This area has a concreted space measuring 6.1 x 4.2 metres approximately. One of the main features of the outside to this property is the feeling of open space and privacy. Retreat and tree change come to mind.

There are three charming red brick fireplaces with wooden mantles, the kitchen has a cast iron wood stove consistent with the era, two original Baltic storage cupboards either side of the chimney breast are intact, wooden bench top with double sink and white cabinetry with gas cooking makes for an easy care space.

The lounge has a choice of open fire place and reverse cycle air conditioner providing instant warmth or cooking when required along with Baltic pine flooring. The bathroom has a deep freestanding bath with overhead shower, pedestal basin and toilet with cork flooring. The new owner will be able to continue the update to suit their needs.

The front verandah offers sweeping views across the valley, the perfect place to relax and talk to friends through all the seasons, and a dry place for pets as Coleraine has great rainfall. There is a choice of town and tank water and all services are connected. The secondary multi purpose covered area at the rear of the home, measuring 9.2 x 6.2 metres approximately, could become a great family room, play area, workshop or craft space with minor building work.

There is dry stone walling gabion basket work and easy planting with clever use of ex-water tanks as large containing beds, this garden awaits a creative gardener.

This would make the perfect escape from busy city life with Coleraine having great aged care, doctors, a chemist, school, supermarket, bank, sporting clubs and art interest. All the needs are met plus V-line transport to Mt. Gambier, Warrnambool, Hamilton and Melbourne when needing a change from the car travel.
