Fantastic Value for Money!

Nestled on a beautifully kept 4760sqm allotment this historic, character filled cottage is now available for the first time.  The picturesque setting takes you back to an age gone by with the old dairy at the property’s entrance, the manicured lawn shaded by mature European trees, rose beds, disused farm machinery come ornamental garden features and the valley outlook over grazing paddocks, creek and orchards beyond.

The original two roomed cottage was built in the 1800s and further extensions took place, as the years progressed and the family grew, with a major renovation in the 1950s.  The second bedroom was even used as the local Post Office at one point.

As you’d expect from a character home the features include lofted 3m high ceilings, polished timber floors (pine and jarrah), large kitchen with huge pantry, dining room, spacious bedrooms, wood combustion heater in the lounge with a lean-to housing the bathroom and laundry.  Any additional money spent on this asset will be well rewarded, whilst it still remains quite functional and comfortable as is.

Outside the garden is reminiscent of a gorgeous wedding venue.  Manicured lawns, rose beds, claret ash, Japanese maples and many other varieties of tree shade the lawns and help to create a private setting for family and friends to enjoy.  The shedding is abundant with plenty of space for boats, caravans, cars, bikes, workshop and storage.  A recently erected shed has been fully lined, floored and divided to allow for a separate retreat or storage.

Lenswood, Basket Range and Woodside have the closest primary schools and Woodside has most amenities required for everyday living.  Forest Range has a peaceful feel with rolling hills, extensive valley views, multiple cellar doors and a welcoming community.  This is an excellent offering for a family that needs space for themselves, their toys and room to relax.
