Steeped in local history, this cottage Circa 1840 was originally the abode of a local farmer or shepherd. In 1846 when the copper mining commenced, Kanmantoo became a busy place with two hotels, the Britannia and the Black dog. This cottage has been painstakingly revamped and enlarged by the current owners using local bluestone and materials. It oozes character and old worlde charm one could expect in a cottage of this vintage. In now includes 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The careful restoration includes feature stone walls and polished floorboards and panelled cedar doors. The rumpus room is spacious and includes a French door access. The two bathrooms have been fully modernised. Cathedral pine ceilings are a distinctive feature throughout while solid wooden doors are also included in the offering. The cottage is insulated with batts throughout.
The land area is 7800 square metres and is surrounded by a large rural holding. Studded informally around the yard are various gum trees, casuarinas, fruit trees and cottage plants. On the road boundary are 3 pepper trees. Mains power and water are connected. It would make an ideal property for anyone looking for multi vehicle/truck parking or wishing to erect some larger shedding.
