Showcasing some stunning features of homes of this era and sitting on approximately half an acre of land, this character miners cottage is awaiting new owners.
With open fireplaces, pressed tin ceiling, beautiful jarrah floorboards and incredibly thick walls, you will fall in love with this circa 1885 beauty. Enter the home via the huge yet comfortable lounge room with heating and cooling and jarrah floorboards and just picture yourself relaxing here after a long day at work. Step through to the open plan kitchen/meals area which has been lovingly renovated and features both a large open fireplace and a pot belly combustion heater. You will also find another slow combustion heater in the formal dining/family room which is directly adjacent two of the three bedrooms. Imagine how wonderfully warm those cold winters will be, curled up in front of the slow combustion heater, watching the footy with family and friends, sharing a big Barossa red! For those occasions you may not have time to light the fire, the reverse cycle split system air conditioner in the lounge room is very handy.
As you wander through this lovely home you get a great sense of the history of the area. Outside on the 2006 square metres of land (approximately half an acre) there is an ancient peppercorn tree, well over 100 years old and just waiting for a family with children to climb it, make a cubby house or swing from the branches. With excellent shedding, chook runs, raised vegetable garden beds and rainwater storage, all the basics are here, you just need to add your own touches. Don’t forget the fruit trees -plums, apricots, quinces, peach, pomegranate and loquat, a real old fashioned haul of fruit from the gardens every year. This surely is the perfect environment for a growing family, with trees to climb, cubby houses to make, plenty of nooks and crannies for the best ever game of hide and seek!
