Charming 4 Bedroom Ensuite Weatherboard Cottage, Idyllic Location
Auction Location: 182-200 City Walk, Canberra City ACT 2601.
Stunning 4 bedroom ensuite completely renovated 100-year old cottage in an idyllic and secluded location and elevated position on the beautiful Goodradigbee River. The house is weatherboard with corrugated iron roof and was moved from Sans Souci, Sydney, about 18 years ago when it was renovated in its present location. The cottage abounds with character and charm with leadlight front door, pressed metal ceilings, ornamental fireplaces and restored original timber floors in the bedrooms. The bathrooms and kitchen offer contemporary convenience with a design that is sympathetic with the charm of the cottage.
The living room and kitchen are open plan with beautifully restored and polished timber floors and have both a split-system air conditioner and open fire. The wiring and plumbing are updated and the cottage is all-electric with a large hot water storage system. All rooms have French doors opening onto the verandahs and a wide verandah on the North-facing river side of the cottage offers an outstanding outlook over the valley. A large deck provides an excellent alfresco space.
The grounds and gardens are extensive and have been beautifully developed and maintained. There are significant plantings of more than 200 trees which are connected to an irrigation system fed by a dam and 50,000L water tank. The property also includes another 2 x 50,000L water tanks plumbed to the house. Outbuildings include a 12 x 5.6m cedar-clad barn on a concrete slab with power and light.
The cottage is currently being operated as an AirBnB and is heavily booked. The present owners are prepared to leave it set up as it is, including furniture - an exceptional work-from-home business opportunity.
