An opportunity exists for you to purchase this beautiful little cottage and be a part of Bridgetown’s unique history.
This house is a stand out from the rest on the market at the moment being a very cute weather board (not asbestos clad )and iron roofed home. History dates back to when it was built as one of three railway cottages to house the railway workers and their families in around 1905. Historic images of these are in the photos.
A well sought after property located eazy walking distance to town and a two minute walk to the beautiful Blackwood River.
This two bedroom plus sleep out home has a country style kitchen with its original Metters stove still in place.
Recently Polished floorboards in Lounge, Kitchen and passage way with new carpets in Bedrooms.
The lounge room has a reverse cycle air conditioner in it, an open fire with a beautiful ornate fire surround. The fire place at one stage had a small slow combustion stove installed with the flue going up the original chimney which worked very well.
The bathroom has a shower over the original lovely deep bath and still has its character vanity, complimented by an indoor toilet.
There is a small laundry next to the bathroom that leads off from the sunroom. The well lit sunroom has a glass door opening onto a small balcony. Perfect for soaking up the afternoon winter sun but well shaded by the silver birch tree in the summer.
There is a working outhouse toilet in the backyard down the verandah stairs, albeit needing a bit of maintenance to the weather boards.
This character cottage is freshly painted inside and out over the last couple of years presenting itself very neat and tidy.
The massive mulberry tree makes for a fantastic kids cubby room and is a centre piece to a huge simple back yard. The added bonus of the size of land makes it ready for you to extend the house further out the back or garden till your hearts desire.
With plenty of height, tall stumps and gentle sloping land it makes for Plenty of storage room or a downstairs extension underneath the house.
Over the years the house has been rewired, re stumped, painted, re-roofed and a new colour bond fence on two sides of the property with the third side needing attention. New boards have also been put on the front verandah.
This house is very comfortable as is, but the potential to renovate and extend into a large family home is tempting.
Currently privately rented to very good Tennants at $280.00 a week but due for a rent increase in May.
With such a huge demand in property rentals in Bridgetown this property would make a great investment or an excellent opportunity for someone to own their first home.
This is a private sale looking for offers over $330.000.
