About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in April 2019.

With the kind of charm that could place it on the pages of a Jane Austin novel, prepare yourself to fall in love in this very special place. From the beautifully clipped front hedges and white picket gate to the expansive lawns and gardens out back, this property will surprise and delight. The very pretty character cottage has been meticulously maintained, and the results speak for themselves. If you're a romantic at heart this could be just what you've been searching for.

The house sits on a generous 1693 sqm of well-established and very private gardens close to the heart of the Southbridge village. Inside, living, dining and kitchen are open plan with original polished wood floors and T & G ceilings a real feature. The gently angled ceiling in the dining and kitchen areas is reminiscent of a ship's fit-out and this ship would have been fit for Captain Cook himself. A gorgeous restored wooden mantelpiece now houses an efficient wood burner, perfectly combining original charm and modern efficiency. Cool in the summer and cozy in the winter - how easy is it to picture yourself here? The dining area opens through French doors to a sunny, paved courtyard that in turn connects to the surrounding gardens.

There are three bedrooms, a bathroom with full sized bath and shower above and a separate laundry. At the other end of the property there is a double garage and in between are raised vege planters, fruit trees, and plenty of private gardens to savor. Whatever the next chapter holds for this lovely place, it must surely include happy beginnings and happy endings.
