One of Bendigos most historic and exquisite cottages is on the market, and this rare beauty is one not to miss.
Dating back to 1868 and originally owned by a mine manager, the classic original sandstone cottage has been beautifully restored over recent years with the most care and attention to detail to maintain its one-and-a-half century old heritage.
Set back off the road and along a quaint driveway, the abode is nestled under a shady peppercorn tree and surrounded by tranquil gardens. Put simply, its the most magical little cottage in Bendigo and one youll fall in love immediately.
Sprinkled with exclusive features throughout; a restored cedar fireplace in the lounge, original Baltic flooring in the front hallway and a 3m x 3m stand-up dry cellar carved out of sandstone under the kitchen the whole property is oozing with historic charisma.
The 153-year-old cottage also holds its original fire stoked washing machine, now styled as a beautiful shelf in the master bedroom. Other ornate details include stain-glass windows and timber-lined ceilings.
While the original appeal has been maintained in the kitchen it has been thoughtfully brought up to comfortable modern-living standard with contemporary appliances, alongside vintage built-in cabinetry and open shelving under the central island bench.
A separate dining space or sunroom adds to its versatility while the rooms all lend themselves to multiple uses. An added skylight in the center of the house ensures plenty of sun soaked living.
Two split systems, modern bathrooms, new carpets and Lino flooring adds to its comforts.
In recent years a decked entertaining patio has also been added to the backyard which also features a quaint little detached studio/workshop; ideal as a study/craft room or for extra storage.
Its central location also offers up views of the cathedral and the city landscape from the comfort of your front veranda.
A story in history in every room beautifully told in the modern era best describes this one-of-a-kind cottage. Dont miss this one.
