This charming cottage was originally built in 1880 and still maintains the charm and originality of yesteryear. Features include timber floors throughout and ornate fire places. Combining some modern day upgrades, adding great comfort, this cottage is warm, inviting and very appealing. As well as a huge free standing wood heater there is a heat pump to maintain the temperature.
Deceptively larger than might appear, there are 4 bedrooms on offer, including the master suite upstairs that enjoys its own ensuite bathroom with rural views over the back paddocks. Downstairs, the other 3 bedrooms are all doubles in size with room for old fashioned wardrobes if you have them. Downstairs also includes a Laundry, mudroom and a central bathroom. The open plan lounge, dining and kitchen are slightly sunken adding great dimension to the open spaces and an added separation from what is a very practical open central entry consisting of a wonderful old double-sided feature fireplace.
The kitchen has a fabulous country feel to it and is complete with a 900mm stainless steel gas cooker. Central to the open plan living is the dining table, with the lounge tucked in at the other end. From the lounge there are beautiful French doors that open out onto the rear entertaining deck perfect for sitting back with a good book or entertaining visiting friends.
The garden is simply lovely. Low-maintenance, yet wonderfully completes the quaint charming cottage look. A large deciduous tree takes pride of place in the front yard and flower beds add wonderful colour. The gravel pathway winds its way to the veranda and front door. There are 2 garden sheds for storage and garden tools. Here you can be self-sufficient with your own rain-water, grow your own veggies, pick the fruit from the apricot tree or the plum and greengage trees. Keep some chickens and have fresh eggs every morning.
This is a most charming cottage with nothing to do but move in and enjoy the lifestyle it has to offer. Glen Huon is 10 minutes by car to the central hub of Huonville and Hobart is a picturesque 45 minutes to the CBD should you need to commute on a daily basis. Please contact me for a private inspection that suits you, or keep an eye out on our open homes, but be prepared... you will not want to leave once here.
