THE RAILWAY COTTAGE - A CHARMING CHARACTER FILLED 2 BEDROOM WEATHERBOARD HOME
This historical, quintessential, white weatherboard, country cottage with its tin roof and verandah, is fondly known as 'The Railway Cottage' and its charm will simply captivate you!
Set in a convenient central village location and nestled behind mature deciduous trees, this two bedroom, character filled home brings a smile to your face the moment you see it!
The home was recently painted inside and out, in a modern Hamptons style white palette that showcases the timber floors and windows that have been regularly oiled and maintained over the years.
Inside, the natural light streams through each room, and the home has an elegant and stylish modern feel to it whilst still maintaining its original character.
The lounge has wonderful sunset views of the hills in the distance and features a fireplace with a slow combustion wood heater.
A welcoming open plan kitchen/meals area, flows out onto an entertainment deck with a covered pergola. It's definitely the place where you love to spend much time.
The kitchen decor offers tones of grey and white and it has all the modern necessities needed. Featuring a stainless steel dishwasher, range hood and an Italian 'Allenzi' freestanding oven with gas hotplates. An original fireplace currently accommodates a slow combustion wood heater keeping the area toasty warm in winter.
Set on a good sized block of 789m2, the gardens have established flowering garden beds and plenty of fruit trees with plums, a nectarine, fig, peach, apple and olive tree. There's veggie gardens, a good sized lawned area, plenty of shady picnic spots and at the back of the block a great chicken pen where the silky bantams thrive!
Car accommodation is provided by an oversized garage and carport plus a large pebbled parking apron.
To the side of the property is a vacant railway easement block that provides the perfect space for a game of cricket and also provides easy access to the back garden.
Location wise, you are literally a minute or two from the school and the centre of the wonderful historical village of Bungendore, yet only a short drive to Canberra, Defence Headquarters and 1 1/2hour drive to the South Coast.
Catch the train to Bundanoon, Bowral or Sydney or instead of driving into Canberra, relax and enjoy the view.
When I asked the owners what they loved the most about the property, they mentioned the chimes of the railway bell that ring around 7.30am and at 9.30pm. It's been part of their daily routine for so many years. They have sadly outgrown the home and their wish is to hand it over to someone who will love it as much as they do!
